Family Communication

Communicate

Perhaps the most painful experience in life is on-going conflict that simply doesn't get resolved.  The expectations of closeness, the roles we assume the other should fulfill, history that is decades old can resurface and instigate sudden alienation.

Consequences of intractable conflict reverberate out in expanding concentric circles to the nephews, nieces, grandchildren, and so on.  Weddings and funerals come and go without some of the family attending, and the words we wish we would have said are left to haunt us after a loved one has past.
