Journal Article — Good Mother/Daughter Hunting: A Process of Self-Healing — by L. Mlecz
Numerous life circumstances and relationships have made me the person I am today. While throughout the years I have dealt with many problems as they have come along, there is one issue that has remained unresolved in my life. This issue concerns my relationship with my mother, Sharon. Presently our relationship is distant. I live in New York and she lives in Wyoming. The distance is more than physical, though. While researching and working on this paper, I have come to realize that my relationship with Sharon is reflective of that part of myself that identifies me as her daughter. In examining our relationship on this level, I have come to an understanding, not only of Sharon and our relationship, but also of myself. It is through understanding and acceptance that I have been able to start healing this part of myself. This process of self-healing is a necessary change that must occur within myself before I can change my relationship with Sharon.
