Childhood. It can be one of the best times of your life—no real responsibilities. You are just learning, growing, and becoming the person you were meant to be. While some of us wish we could have stayed little forever and avoided adulting and big responsibilities, others couldn’t wait to grow up. They couldn’t wait to be able to go out on their own, provide for themselves, make their own decisions, have control, and start a new life. Not everyone grows up in a home with a perfect family with a white picket fence. Family trauma is real. And if you have experienced family trauma and have the opportunity to start your own family, breaking the cycles of family trauma can feel like a heavy process.

We have Libby Ward from Diary of an Honest Mom on our show today. Libby is all too familiar with this topic. She’s a digital creator, speaker, and mental health advocate deeply committed to breaking the cycles of family trauma. Libby knows being a mom is hard and wants other moms to know it’s normal to feel that way. She wants to change the narrative on what it means to be a “good mom” and remind others that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of your kids. We couldn’t agree more.

In this episode, Libby is sharing with us how to break the cycles of family trauma and move forward. She knows firsthand how important it is to heal from the past and become the mom you want to be for your family. With her wisdom and advice, we feel like you will leave this episode knowing good steps to take to move forward and break the cycles of family trauma you may have experienced.
