Is the bond between a woman and her child stronger than the bond with her self?


In other words, is the motherly instinct stronger that self preservation. If so, where does choice come in?

    GPAGE......I like your comment. Your last sentence? I said that for years....."Once they're grown and on their own, I can finally have time for me and do what Mom wants to do."

    Silly me...10 Grandchildren and 1 Great-grandchild later.........

    Well, onegoodwoman,

    I'm not stepping into this trap...Hahaha.

    I will say this from a man's perspective, albeit without children, I believe there is a point where you have to cut the cord. Co-dependency would be a reason for example. Very Unhealthy!
