107. Staying Present In Their Absence

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Estrangement from your adult child(ren) presents a special sorrow during the holiday season.
Part of the suffering is inevitable for parents; the loss of connection to one’s own children hurts.
But there’s another aspect of estrangement that you can do something about today. And that is to reconnect with yourself, through the practice of staying present.
In this grounding episode, Tina reminds us that there’s always someone home inside us. Even when we’re missing other people, it’s important that we show up for ourselves.
Three ways for unwillingly estranged parents to stay present during the holidays (and every day) are explained in this episode. But as Tina points out, there are many more.
Happy holidays to everyone; may we all find many moments of peace, meaning and connection.
For many more practical tips on how to repair an estranged relationship with your adult child(ren) and yourself, see Tina's book, Reconnecting With Your Estranged Adult Child.
