Weekend Mental Health Writing Prompt – Mom

Ah, Mothers! Good, bad or otherwise, we all have or have had one, so let’s write about her this weekend. You could write about what you learned from her, how she impacted your life, how she impacted your mental health, how you are like her, how you are different from her. You could write directly to her thanking her for all that she’s done for you, or maybe releasing some pent up resentments you may have towards her. (I don’t recommend sending the latter to your mom, but it is a therapeutic tool nonetheless.)

If you never knew your mom, write about that, or write about someone who is like a mom to you.

Just think of the word ‘mom,’ pick up your pen, take a deep breath, and write away. Happy weekend, everyone!
