Healing From Family Estrangement: How Support Groups Can Help
Family estrangement is a difficult and painful experience, and it can be especially difficult for parents who are estranged from their adult children. It can leave parents feeling isolated and unsupported, but there is hope. At The Relaxation Room, we offer support groups for estranged parents, providing a safe and supportive environment for healing and growth.
Estrangement is the breakdown of a previously existing relationship, often within a family. Family estrangement can take many forms, from complete cut-off to ongoing tension and conflict. A variety of factors, including abuse, addiction, mental illness, and disagreements over values or lifestyle choices, can cause it.
The Impact of Estrangement
The impact of family estrangement can be profound and long-lasting. It can lead to feelings of grief, guilt, shame, and rejection. It can also affect mental health, physical health, and social relationships. Parents estranged from their adult children often feel a sense of loss and a lack of purpose in life.
The Importance of Support Groups
Support groups can provide a vital source of comfort, validation, and connection for those experiencing family estrangement. Parents can gain a sense of belonging and understanding by sharing their experiences and feelings with others who have gone through similar situations. Support groups can also offer practical tips and strategies for coping with the challenges of estrangement.
