Parental Wounds

“I had a really challenging relationship with my mother. . . . She told me things like she wished I’d never been born, and I just internalized that and felt that I had to prove my value. . . . Scripture was transformational for me in changing the way I thought in the way I see myself and see myself as Jesus created me . . . that I do have value, that I do have a purpose, and that I’m here for a reason.”
