Mother’s Day can still be a good day to connect, regardless of your strained relationship status. However, it’s important that you approach with caution.
If you still have good reason to stay away, don’t feel guilty for not reaching out — even on Mother’s Day. Acknowledge how you feel, but don’t let it overwhelm you.
Mother’s Day can be incredibly hard if your mother is no longer around. Advertisements, social media posts, and even items at the grocery store can dig up uncomfortable or upsetting memories.
