Picture of Antimonium muriaticum
Essence: motherhood has meant a loss of career.
Loss of career through motherhood
They feel that they have to give up their artistic career to be a mother. It is not something that can be combined, it is either one or the other. So being a mother they have to make this sacrifice.
Silenced by your mother
Or they may have the feeling that their creative urge is being smothered by their mother. They have all sorts of creative ideas, but their mother always cuts them off before they have a chance to develop them. Their mother simply doesn’t hear them and goes right against all their creative wishes.
This often happens in cases where the mother herself was denied the opportunity to develop her creativity and this has made her awkward and uncooperative.
Turning against your mother
They become obstinate and turn against anybody who tries their mother as being over protective and smothering, stopping them from doing what they want. It is as if the mother’s care and attention works like poison, and they react with poisonous looks whenever anybody dares to come near them.
Loss of talents leads to self-pity
When they feel there is no room for their creative talents they become pessimistic and very melancholic. They start feel sorry for themselves and think they are a martyr. They may also adopt shocking tactics towards anybody who asks for attention.
