What is estrangement?
Most of us are affected, and don't even realize it...
Family estrangement is the loss of a previously existing relationship between family members, through physical and/or emotional distancing, often to the extent that there is minimal or no communication between the individuals involved for a prolonged period.
Many people are estranged, without even realizing it!
Estrangement may result from the direct interactions between those affected, including violence, abuse, neglect, misbehavior such as repetitive explosive outbursts or intense conflict and disagreements, differing values and beliefs, disappointment, poor communication, or many other factors.
If you think you might be dealing with estrangement, you can reach out to us for information about how to figure things out. You are not alone!
We're not therapists but we can put you in touch with support and resources.
"Things Will Get Different"
Alexander Desmarais had a childhood too painful for most of us to imagine. Despite that, he's developed an outlook that is both healthy and inspiring. One thing that really stuck out was his message that, "even if things don't get better, they will get different." He taught us that no matter how bad our situation, it's as impermanent as we're willing to do the work to make it.
