-- Quote of the Day --
“What really distinguishes this generation in all countries
from earlier generations
is its determination to act,
its joy in action
the assurance of being able to change things
by one’s own efforts.”
~ Hannah Arendt

Topic: family estrangement.
I grew up in a broken family life where both my older brothers left before they were 16 years old and I was on my own at 13.5 years of age. I didn't speak much to my mother between the time I was on my own to the age of 16... when I was caught living on my own and sent to a foster home for a year or so. The foster mother tried to help my mother and I get on speaking terms... but it took several more years before I could deal with all the past issues. In my mid 20's she and I became friendly and best of friends (as good as we could be) in my 30's. She committed suicide (chronically ill) just 2 xmas's ago. Since then my two brothers and I have developed stronger relationships with more frequent visits despite living a few days drive apart and often communicate online. My Aunt (mother's sister) and Uncle have also reached out and we have an amazing relationship now. It is very interesting to have a family connection, something I didn't even know that I needed - but now that I do, it is highly important and cherished.
