The maternal instinct is a powerful force; for many of us, it drives a multitude of decisions and actions. But sometimes we find ourselves worn out by doing too much mothering–and by this we mean to those who are not our own children. Veronica Chambers has experienced this and this week she writes about how she drew boundaries and what that has meant for her life and happiness. Veronica is a prolific author and journalist, best known for her critically acclaimed memoir Mama’s Girl, the young adult novel The Go-Between, and Yes Chef, which was co-authored with chef Marcus Samuelsson. She is the editor of The Meaning of Michelle: 16 Writers on the Iconic First Lady and How Her Journey Inspires Our Own.
