The Critical Mother

Gwen Potts

So many of us struggle with mother wounds. Long after childhood passes, the loudest, most critical echoes we hear in our heads are the voices of our mothers. If we aren’t mindful, we can give them power and control beyond what they deserve, and can paralyze us from moving forward in our lives by telling us we aren’t good enough, smart enough, or worthy of love. But as Truthteller Gwen Potts is finally learning, facing that voice and recognizing it for the flawed advice that it is can be a beautiful beginning.

A Letter to My Little Girl

Gwen Potts

There is such power in sharing our stories. Not only can we inspire and encourage each other, but as Truthteller Gwen shows us, writing our stories gives us new perspective and allows us to choose, from this day forward, to own both who we have been and who we are becoming. This powerful letter about emerging from sexual abuse is something many women in our community can relate to.
