Family relationship problems usually revolve around the way you make up after a relationship issue has caused tension, hurt, pain and anger.
Maybe you feel guilty when you do speak your mind and then rush to compensate by being extra attentive to the family member who felt hurt by your remarks.
You give your power to the one who feels wronged and then resent it later when you feel diminished by your enslavement towards atoning for your daring move to speak out.
The relationship feels burdensome, stressful and heavy, making you want to exit.
You may cut it off so give yourself some relief. But it's harder to make up later. The effort and work that is needed to bring the relationship back to life is enormous.
So why not learn how to repair family problems by taking care of the hurt before it turns into a gaping and lethal wound.
This video tells the story of a family I helped to repair their family issues during relationship counseling while they were fresh so that they didn't have to amputate the connections or act out of guilt in order to feel okay again.
