Last week I attended an event on mental health, A gentleman stood up and started crying seeking help from the panel as he felt guilty that his mother was \'broken\' and \'hurt\' and he didnt know how to help her, the answer given on the night concluded with unsatisfactory advice, and i could\'nt step in and share my opinion.
But as this has been bothering me for a whole week, I want to share the solution for however many people this will reach.
If your mothers are broken or depressed, especially single mothers out there, please ask yourself how much significance are they receiving from you, how much connection and love are you giving them? 2 of our very basic human needs are connection/love and significance. Our mothers began serving us from before we were born, until we became independent, so when we became independent a massive void was created in their lives hence why they feel less significant and loved by us, which makes them feel less motivated and fulfilled in life.
