However factual the sentence “I didn’t want you” might be, it’s not a socially acceptable admittance for any parent to utter these words to their child(ren), even if the child knows on some conscious or unconscious level that this is the truth.
Today’s show tells of two client stories in which mothers did not want to bare children in this lifetime, but having been raised in a time where they felt they had no choice, they reluctantly became mothers anyway. Karen and Kelly seek to illustrate the effects this has on the child(ren) of parents who did not want them and also the anger and resentment that builds within the reluctant parent.
Take note, the entire lack of judgement with which this podcast is presented. You may find the relief you need for your own self to accept that you did not want to be a parent or that you too have been raised by a parent who didn’t want you. There are lessons and love for the individuals on both sides of this story.
