BSB: Karen C. L. Anderson (Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters)

Bank Square Books is delighted to present a book release event for local author Karen C. L. Anderson's book Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters. This event is free and open to the public. 

About the Book

The best news on the planet is that your mother doesn't have to change in order for you to be happy. In fact, author Karen C.L. Anderson will take it a step further and say, your mother doesn't have to change in order for you to be free, peaceful, contented, and joyful.

You can emotionally separate without guilt: Inspired by her own journey, Anderson's Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters: A Guide For Separation, Liberation & Inspiration shows women how to emotionally separate from their mothers without guilt and anxiety so they can finally create a life based on their own values, desires, needs, and preferences. Not to mention being able to like and respect themselves during the process.

Learn through the experiences of others: Through personal stories and experiences, practical tools that can used right away to feel better, and journal prompts, Anderson compassionately leads women who struggle in their relationships with their mothers through a process of self-awareness and understanding. Anderson's work with hundreds of women and her own personal work have resulted in profound growth and transformation. Anderson knows the results are nothing short of miraculous.

Funny and compassionate: This book is about Anderson discovering and accepting the whole of who she is (separate from her mother), and making her discoveries accessible to women struggling to redefine their challenging relationships with their mothers. Her writing is relatable, real, funny, and compassionate.

About the Author

Karen C.L. Anderson is an author, storyteller, and master-certified life coach who is dedicated to the concept that the truth never creates suffering and that all stories can be told through the lens of truth. 
She champions smart, sensitive, creative women who strive for peace in their relationships, who bump up against beliefs that are not their own, but which, at one time in their lives they blindly took on – beliefs that ensure they will continue to doubt themselves. They are brave enough to examine the beliefs and stories that underpin their existence and ask themselves what THEY want to believe. As they cultivate their intuition, they will choose to trust their own answers.
Prior to all of this, she spent 17 years trying to fit her right-brained self into a left-brained career as a trade magazine journalist in the field of plastics (and if she had a dime for every time someone mentioned that line from The Graduate...).
She is married to the love of her life (a left-brained engineer) and lives in Southeastern Connecticut.
