“There's no real guidance about being intentional with identifying and processing our emotions because in a lot of cases, our parents don't know how to identify and process their own,” says Ashley C. Ford. Ford is the bestselling author of Somebody’s Daughter, a memoir about childhood, family, love, and forgiveness. Ford joins Erica Chidi to talk about growing up with fractured familial relationships and the complex and sometimes isolated nature of girlhood. She talks about how girls learn to betray themselves and how they are often conditioned to be “good” and silent. And Ford says that forgiveness means accepting what’s true instead of clinging to what we can’t—and don’t need to—control.
