Recommended by my therapist

by Donna Jean G on Apr 5, 2012

I am a parent who is estranged from my only child. My therapist recommended this book to me, even though the book was originally intended for divorcing couples. It really is good for anyone who has a rift with someone they love. The book is unique in that it describes different levels of forgiveness. On one end of the spectrum is "cheap forgiveness," where I might choose to forgive my child but require nothing of him, which doesn't really resolve anything but just buries my feelings. On the opposite end of the spectrum is real forgiveness, where my child and I work together to restore our relationship. That would be wonderful, but he won't communicate with me. Therefore, I think I will choose something in the middle, where I don't have to forgive if I can't, but nonetheless I can come to an understanding about the situation and can move on with my life. This book was very helpful in letting me know that my task is to let go (accept) and begin to live again without letting this estrangement ruin the rest of my life. I will keep this book very handy and will want to re-read it many times, I'm sure.
