(Show notes for Episode 96 are here: When Estrangement Feels Like Abuse)
Many rejected parents feel a deep sense of loss of love, connection and belonging.
If you’re feeling unloved because your adult child is estranged, you may not have the luxury of waiting for her or him to offer you the warmth and affection that all of us need.
The positive message of this episode is that even in our darkest times, we have the capacity to create love and kindness for ourselves and others. We don’t have to wait to receive these from someone else.
Love expands in the giving, not in the receiving. If you want to experience more love, more kindness, etc., Tina has practical suggestions for how you can cultivate these in your life today.
When it comes to love and forgiveness, lead by example. Be the change you’d like to see, in all your relationships.
For practical tips on how to repair an estranged relationship with your adult child(ren) while healing and growing as a person, see Tina’s book, Reconnecting With Your Estranged Adult Child.
