The Book that Started It All-
Book #1- Lemon Moms: A Guide to Understand and Survive Maternal Narcissism
Book #1 in the Lemon Moms Series
When we were kids, if our mother was emotionally and/or physically detached, if she neglected us, was self-absorbed, wasn’t interested in what we said or did, didn’t care about our friends, wasn’t happy to see us, or didn’t hug, kiss, hold, sing or read to us often, we may have gotten the message that we weren’t important. We accepted that we didn’t matter.
If our mother parented by blaming, shaming, humiliating, intimidating, manipulating, mocking, using hurtful sarcastic comments, lying, or gaslighting, then it’s likely that we often felt like something was wrong with us. As children, we may have witnessed everyone else’s needs, especially our mothers, being more important than our own. And, if you’re like me, you thought you were a burden to her simply because you existed. We were too young to understand that her behavior was about herself, and not caused by any shortcoming within ourselves. And now as adults, we feel “less than,” “not good enough,” or “undeserving” of love or happiness, and we don’t know why.
Growing up in this kind of unhealthy environment meant that we couldn’t express our feelings, or ask questions because mom wasn’t interested in them, or they were seen as a challenge to her authority, It didn’t feel safe for us to use our voices or to speak up to share our thoughts and feelings with her.
The result of this type of dysfunctional upbringing is that we never got to experience what it’s like to be seen and heard. We didn’t know the feeling of being validated. We started accepting the reality that we weren’t good enough and that others’ needs and desires were more valid or important than our own.
This mindset affects our self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence. It contributes to developing anxiety, depression, and codependency. It’s important to know that when thoughts are connected with feelings, a belief is created. And without intervention, we carry these faulty beliefs about ourselves into adulthood.
If we believe that we’re fundamentally flawed or undeserving of being loved or treated well, we become a dumping ground for others’ emotional garbage.
Even though we don’t like the way others treat us, deep down we believe we deserve nothing better. We’ve never seen healthy boundaries in our family, so we don’t know how to set them and use them to protect ourselves. We grow up to unconsciously and silently broadcast the message that we exist to be of service to others and that it doesn’t matter how poorly they treat us. We accept disrespect, unfair or unkind treatment, and sometimes even physical, verbal, and emotional abuse.

“Healing” is not the deletion of the pain or the memories. Healing doesn’t erase what happened, and it certainly doesn’t wipe away the memories or the hurt, or your feelings or thoughts about your childhood experiences, or of your mother. Healing isn’t about forgetting.
Healing is about reframing your painful and traumatic experiences so that they add depth and meaning to your personal story. If you were able to erase those experiences, you would also erase a huge opportunity for personal growth and development.
In the process of healing, we take painful memories and experiences and create a whole new understanding around them.
Healing means that when we’ve come out on the other side, we have a scar, a permanent reminder of what we’ve survived. It will be a part of us always. After a while, scars don’t hurt. We hardly remember they’re there. Our scars simply become another aspect of our personal story. Without that story or that experience, we wouldn’t be who we are today.
Recuperating from any kind of mistreatment or abuse requires us to be willing to become new and better versions of ourselves. Being able to forgive ourselves is an important part of this process Why? Because we may have knowingly or unknowingly hurt others as a result of our unhealed or unacknowledged childhood wounds.
Healing gives us back the capacity to trust ourselves We then begin to trust our judgment and make healthy and meaningful decisions. We begin to trust others. We become better human beings.
When we self-avoid the healing process, our emotional triggers become more sensitive. When we’re easily triggered we put even more emotional energy into self-avoidance to keep from getting re-triggered. It becomes a cycle of hiding from our pain any time pain is felt. Eventually, we might need the help of substances or certain activities to keep from feeling the pain; alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping, gambling, etc. Pretty much anything can serve as a distraction to avoid pain. The result is that nothing gets healed and the pain and the emotional triggers continue to grow.
- On beliefs: Remember that beliefs are thoughts that have emotions attached to them. Eliminating inaccurate beliefs is a primary key to healing. Pick one of your childhood beliefs to examine. What thoughts and feelings are still connected to it? For example: “I can’t be successful.” List the feelings and thoughts that come up and write about them at length. Are they still relevant to your life today? Why or why not? Explain.
- On codependency: Do you like to “help” and “fix” other people’s problems? Give recent examples of ways that you’ve helped others or tried to fix them or their problems. Did they ask for this help? Did you jump in and get involved because you knew what to do? Did they accept your help? How did they respond? How did this make you feel? What did you think about the outcome?
