Many of us have been indoctrinated from an early age to believe that family should be everything to us. We should sacrifice for it, put our own needs on hold to satisfy it’s needs, and show loyalty to mom and dad or members of our extended family no matter who they are or how they behave. The difficulty is that there is no room for question in this system. What if mom’s a drunk? What if dad’s physically abusive? What if you just don’t fit and would like a very different life? Many people are kept in conflict because of the shame, blame and guilt that comes from violating “family codes”. Join us for a very different look at family and how YOU can obtain the freedom you desire.
