Many of you are here to listen to One Broken Mom because you identify with the fact that you may have a complicated childhood and family of origin history. And what you are presently addressing in your life can be just your own healing and self-development or it can be in combination with parenting you own children if you have them.
Some of us in life, despite the challenges or adversities we’ve experienced, are able to maintain some degree of connection with our family and some of us, elect to limit contact.
Now, unfortunately, there are some of you out there who actually feel trapped by your family in some way. I’ve heard from some listeners who say that they have parents that have control of their finances and they are unable to leave because they don’t have the money. Others feel trapped by the shame and guilt from feeling responsible for the care of their parent’s needs or perhaps the needs of siblings who are less fortunate.
