Mother & Daughter

Madonna Kolbenschlag notes, “We come into the world as mirror images of our mother – destined to be not only her reflector, but also her silent inquisitor. The relationship between mother and daughter is the most intimate, most intense, most symbiotic and symmetrical bond known to humans.” Mother and daughter start off as a single united set of desires, one that can be challenging for the daughter to reject without rejecting the mother’s love, while the mother has an equally hard time accepting the daughter as a distinct individual motivated by her own desires. –From Girl to Goddess: The Heroine’s Journey through Myth and Legend by Valerie Estelle Frankel
