Dear Sherry — I am so glad you found some value in my words. I am sad for you and for your mom. My daughter is also estranged from her only sister. And, ironically, my sister and I are estranged as well, because people in my family don’t deal with conflict, they just walk away.
I know this is so hard for you, but it is the stories we tell ourselves about what is happening that keep us stuck. I encourage you to allow yourself time to feel your whole range of feelings, giving yourself the care you need. This is not an easy path but I know if you set your intention to find a way to forgive, that you will find that it does get better. I will be sending so much love and light to you and your mom. ♥♥♥
