Cesaly — Thank you for you thoughtful response. Relationships are so hard, and we bring all of our trauma and our unskillful ways of coping with our unresolved pain into each one. The parent child relationship is especially rife with opportunities to cause damage when we are unable to be self-reflective and own our mistakes. I am sorry you are suffering an estrangement from your parents. Your parents would be different if they could be, but the sad truth is many people never find their way to self-actualization. I wish for you peace and healing, whether you are able to reconcile or not.
