MOSMAN, Selina C.; POGGENPOEL, Marie  e  MYBURGH, Chris. Life stories of young women who experience rejection from their mothers. Curationis [online]. 2015, vol.38, n.1, pp. 1-8. ISSN 0379-8577.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/CURATIONIS.V38I1.142.

BACKGROUND: When a daughter perceives rejection from her mother, she is bound to be sensitive to rejection for most if not all of her life. Such an experience influences almost all future relationships OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this research was to explore and describe the life stories of young women who perceived rejection from their mothers and to formulate guidelines to assist them METHOD: A phenomenological interpretive method that is explorative, descriptive, and contextual was used to explore everyday life experiences. Network sampling was used. In-depth phenomenological interviews were conducted with the young women so that they could define the most important dimensions of their life stories and elaborate on what is relevant to them. They were asked: 'Tell me your life story.' One of the authors also had a life story of perceived maternal rejection; hence an auto-ethnography was critical and was included in the study. Thematic data analysis was applied RESULTS: Themes that emerged from the data were that the young women: (1) perceive ongoing challenges in forming and sustaining relationships in their lives; (2) experience their lives as conflicted because their relationship with the central core of their existence, their mother, is perceived as tumultuous; and (3) experience fundamental links to be missing in their 'mother-daughter relationship' CONCLUSION: Only a few women were interviewed regarding perceived rejection from their mothers. Further research in this regard is imperative.
