It's true that the bond between a mother and a daughter is something special. "A mother's and daughter's love is never separated." "No daughter and mother ever live apart, no matter what the distance between them."

Mom is usually an emotional minefield, and you consciously opt against having children of your own because parenthood sure sucked for her. If you find any of these statements relatable, read on.
You may have a toxic mother. It's not your fault that she is treating you this way. You can learn what's causing it to happen, and how to move forward in a productive and healthy way.
Through my work, I have discovered 3 reasons why mothers and daughters fight. The first is the changes in women’s roles that have provided daughters with more opportunities and freedoms than their mother had.
In my family, my grandmother got to vote for the first time during her twenties and it was illegal for her to continue working when she married.
My mother grew up believing that she had a right to vote, but from her mother and her generation, she learned to believe that mothers should not work outside of the home unless they absolutely had to for financial reasons. So when I studied and worked as a mother with young children, my mother could not understand this. My freedom to choose created conflict between us, because, through me, she saw the opportunities she had to deny.
The second reason is women’s multi-generational experience with sexism. When women are silenced, it sets mothers and daughters up to fight over who gets to be heard. When women are emotionally neglected, it sets mothers and daughters up to fight over who gets to be emotionally supported in their relationship. And limiting gender roles set mothers and daughters up to fight over their freedom, as my story above shows.
And the third reason is the marginalization of the mother-daughter relationship. This limits women’s and therapists’ understanding of the dynamics between mothers and daughters.
This lack of understanding causes mothers and daughters to feel shame about their relationship difficulties. It can make them think that they are alone with their relationship issues and that their conflict is due to their own failings.
And unfortunately, I hear all too often from my clients that there is a tendency within the therapy community to pathologize mothers and daughters who don’t get on, often by blaming the mother, which only exacerbates the problem.
Incredible love of mother
Of all the types of love, a mother’s is the strongest. The love between mother and child arises instantly, as a bond uniting two bodies and souls. A mother’s love is unconditional and eternal.
When we say that nature is wise, one of the things that we refer to is the bond between mothers and their children.
A mother’s instinct to protect her offspring begins from the moment she knows she is pregnant. Over the following nine months, although she is yet to see her child, he or she becomes the most precious thing in the world.
Babies have a certain survival instinct. They are born with a handful of strategies or “tricks” that encourage the adults around them to protect and care for them. But the relationship between mother and child is different. It goes beyond the baby’s survival instinct.
A healthy relationship, based on unconditional love, affection, and respect, makes for happy children.
But how can we love someone who we don’t even know yet? How can we love someone so small? Because they are a part of us and fill a gap we never knew existed, flooding us with tenderness and fragility.
When we take on the role of motherhood, we reveal a new part of ourselves. We are stronger, capable of sacrificing everything for our children.
