Mateja Petje Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day


Celebrate Moms Influence


Lifelong Relationship


Insights, experiences and lessons


This blog is about Celebrating Mothers everywhere. But it’s also about the often times complicated family dynamic that exists as well. But of course it is more specifically about my own personal family story. “Mateja Petje Mother’s Day” Blog is about insights, experiences and some priceless lessons I’ve learned in my own life. For example research shows Mothers play a huge, pivotal role in our lives. This is especially true when it comes to daughters.


Mateja Petje Mother’s Day


In an ideal world, daughters receive love, attention, support, and wisdom from their moms. This way it enables them to go into the world and follow their dreams and passions. But, unfortunately the world as we know is not perfect, so things don’t always go as planned.

Mothers’ Positive Influences


Fortunately, according to recent research, as discussed in the article in Psychology Today, most adults report positive relationships with their mothers. For example, 88% of adults say their mother has had a positive influence on them. In addition 92% say their current relationship with their mother is positive. I’m curious what your opinion is. How do these numbers appear if we use you as an example? Think about it.

Still, in my clinical practice, these numbers tend to be quite different. Many women, young or old, report having strained relationships with their mothers. Quite often, they suffer from low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and unfulfilled relationships. They blame themselves for not knowing what went wrong and why they cannot form a lasting loving relationship with a man. Many times they did not have a good role model as to what constitutes a healthy and loving relationship or a marriage.


Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Bonds


So the bond between mothers and daughters is very complex. The bond starts to already develop during pregnancy. Research shows that even fetuses can identify when their mom is stressed and therefore stress can indirectly affect the child’s emotional blue-print. This is a fascinating area of research I personally watch closely. Honestly, I believe I’ve experienced this in my own life.

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Miami U


When I was pursuing my Master’s Degree at the University of Miami, I wrote my best essay. It was on the importance of a secure attachment with parents, and especially mothers. Those who are lucky enough get this kind of secure attachment. However, many others who are not so lucky suffer due to insecure and avoidance attachment. This is characterized by fear, anxiety and feelings of abandonment.


Unfortunately, my experience was similar to many other daughters growing up in dysfunctional families. My family on my mother’s side has experienced generations of alcoholism and violence. Men tend to be violent and use alcohol as a coping mechanism. Many times this was an escape from mental and emotional illnesses, including PTSD. My grandfather suffered from PTSD and in the end it cost him his life.

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Coming to America



 

My mom was not an alcoholic. But she never healed from her own trauma. Instead she lashed out mainly at me. In my tender teen years, I was abused physically, emotionally and mentally. She never sought help for herself.  This was just not something you did in her day. Seeking help for emotional and mental issues is still stigmatized even to this day.


To finally heal from Trauma I had to physically move across the ocean from Slovenia. Now imagine trading places with me. What if you had to move to the US to finally heal from your trauma. You see I’m the first in my family who “broke the cycle”. Frankly, I decided I didn’t want to live this kind of life moreover that I also deserve a healthy, loving relationship. In therapy I learned a lot about myself. I learned for example why I developed Clinical Depression. My healing journey is long and it’s an ongoing process.


Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Blessing


At the same time, it was also a blessing in disguise as I have been able to help hundreds of women to heal from abuse, trauma, difficult relationships, low self-esteem and the . The women I’ve worked with now have confidence, improved relationships and they have made peace with the past.

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Tips



 

1.    Forgive your mom and let go. Write a letter to your mom expressing everything and then burn it. You are doing this for your sake so that you don’t carry this burden.


2.    Think about all the good stuff. Don’t always dwell on the bad stuff. One of my fondest memories is when my mom brought me breakfast in bed on Saturdays.


3.    Be your own best parent. Think about what you have always needed from your mom but never got it. Pamper yourself.


4.    Remember that your mom is just doing the best that she can. She learned all she knows from her mother.


5.    When your mom starts with her “usual” nagging, or she is being negative or critical, just gently disengage. Set the boundaries and practice “tough love”.

Mateja Petje Stress Remedies- Overtired


Unfortunately, many women lose themselves in the process and quest to be the best! Too frequently the result is often resentment. Also the lack of rest causes you to be overtired and feeling irritable and depressed. While improvements in technology have simplified many tasks, quite a lot of people have difficulty disconnecting from their cell phones. Or their iPods or Smart Phones for example, connected to social media like Facebook or Instagram. We’re being bombarded with massive amounts of content. It’s coming towards us non stop in the Information Age we’re in. 


However, don’t despair. Taking an honest look at your life is the first step. The 1st step in creating the life you want. A life where you will experience more joy, peace of mind and yes, even better productivity at your work or your career. Boundaries between life and work are now more blurred than ever however you need to figure out how to find a happy medium. There is a Zen saying “Wherever you go, there you are.” Our level of stress has more to do with our responses to events than the event or job itself.

Mateja Petje Stress Remedies- Self-Care



 

Growing up in Europe, I feel that I have received some advantages because I learned early in my life that it cannot be just about all work and no fun. Even as a 23 year old starting my career, I was entitled to a minimum of 18 paid vacation days and unlimited sick time.  Things have changed with Slovenia now becoming a part of more capitalistic, western approach, due to being a part of the European Union (since 2005) however those values have stayed with me.


Even though I have been working hard and have been investing in my personal and professional life, self-care has always been important to me. Fortunately, I have been always on the lookout for ways to integrate self-care and fun in my life. Using this investment in self care I’ve shared this information during sessions and helped my clients to do the same.

Mateja Petje Stress Remedies-Apply now



 

Here are some of suggestions that you can apply to your life right away:


1Think about if your current job is what you truly care about. True, in this economy it may not be as easy to find a more suitable job. However make an honest assessment of the situation and if the answer is “no”, create a vision of what kind of job you truly do want. What kind of company do you want to work for? What are some of the most important things? Work environment? Benefits? Flexibility? Time off? Ask yourself these questions.


2. If you do decide you need to stay at your current job or if you are a business owner figure out what specific changes you need to make to feel happier. Do you need to have an honest conversation with your manager? Do you need to delegate more? Maybe your employer would consider having you work from home a couple of days a week?


3. Focus on the positive. If you constantly dwell on the negative that’s how your life will look like. So focus on the positive!

Mateja Petje Stress Remedies (continued)


4Take breaks and especially take time for your lunch. You will be more productive by taking time to re-energize and maybe even take a walk around the block. (That includes taking a break from cell phones and iPods!)


5. Instead of dealing with stress and anxiety by consuming too many caffeinated drinks and pastries, grab fresh fruit or a fruit smoothie & some nuts.


6Seek support. We all need times to have somebody listen to us. Take time out and find the support you need.


7. Just BREATHE! Adopt stress relief techniques such as yoga and guided meditation. Practice staying in the moment. When you work, focus on the tasks at hand. When you relax, just focus on that specific moment whether it is drinking a cup of tea, enjoying a sunset or playing with your children.
