Essence: having to continue to be successful and be a good mother.
Success and motherhood must continue
They want to combine their creative career with motherhood, but they feel it is all too much. They feel they have enough creative ideas left inside them, but it is a matter of having to keep up the steady flow. And this is not easy because circumstances are against them. Having to take care of the children sucks out all their creative energy. This way they may even regard their children as enemies who are trying to take success away from them.
Reproducing success in order to be cared for
They may go through life with the feeling that they have to continue their successful performance otherwise nobody will care for them anymore. They not only have to keep up their schoolwork, they also have to do extra creative activities on the side, like music lessons, or acting lessons, otherwise mother won’t be happy and won’t take care of them anymore. They might even forge their school reports in order to be appreciated.
Powerless against your mother
Their own mother often felt the same need to develop her artistic talents and stay in touch with the art world or scientific developments. But motherhood forced her to give up her brilliant scientific career and for this she secretly blames the children. She is is expressed either through criticism or through projecting their own desires on to them, forcing them to be high flyers in the arts or sciences. But this has nothing to do with real love and nurturing. And gradually the children will begin to feel powerless against their mother. They can’t compete with her use of language, her cleverness and her power. Her dramatic behaviour takes all power away from them and eventually they will see her only as their enemy.
Powerless as a mother
Another variation is that they feel powerless as a mother. This may be the result of having too little time for the children because they are too caught up in their creative career. It may also be because they did not receive much care themselves when they were little and therefore feel unable to cope with children, it all feels very unnatural to them. Because they feel they haven’t given enough love to their children, they tend to compensate by giving them anything they ask for, which in turn leads to a feeling of powerlessness later on when they dare not deny the ever growing demands.
Dwindling talents leads to self-pity
They are very sensitive to criticism, especially where their way of handling motherhood is concerned. But they are also sensitive to criticism of their artistic achievements. On the whole they tend to be easily insulted, feeling that they are being treated unfairly, always afraid of being pushed aside. In order to maintain their successful career they may take it upon themselves to start looking after influential people, hoping of course that they will safeguard their position.
As soon as they feel that appreciation of their talents is waning they become quite pessimistic and start to wallow in self-pity. They don’t want to meet other people anymore because they will only be trodden on. They usually don’t show their unhappiness.
