When I stopped seeing my mother with the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself.”
-Nancy Friday

Maybe it is not that I need to understand my mother's weaknesses as much as it is that I need to understand and overcome my own.

When I read this, my first thought was the opposite. I didn't feel like you need to understand your weaknesses to me. Instead if feels like that you need to understand and follow your strengths and joy to give birth to yourself.
