End the Toxic Family Legacy: Family Estrangement Classes

It is no surprise that when you were raised in a dysfunctional family where there’s ritual abuse, you can experience one or more broken relationships. It could be with your siblings, mother, father, grandparents, cousins, or other relatives.

In our society, there is a stigma, especially towards adult children who are now estranged from one or more family members. There is a double-standard.

Our society has a false myth that if a parent cuts ties with their adult child, it’s perfectly fine. People support the adult parent. Even if this parent neglected and abused their child. Yet, our society dumps toxic shame, blame, and offensive judgment onto adult children who are estranged from their family of origin.

A recent British survey defines family estrangement as, “The breakdown of supportive relationships between family members. The heartbreak of family estrangement is that those who are supposed to support you, don’t. Those who should be on your side, aren’t.”

In the British study, over 50% of people estranged from a parent said that they cut off the contact. When asked why they went no contact with their parent, the estranged adult child stated, “We could never have a functional relationship again.”

According to credible resources, sibling estrangement is MUCH HIGHER compared to parental estrangement. According to statistics, it is equally as prominent as divorce in our society.

This goes well beyond ‘sibling rivalry.’ Sibling estrangement is ROOTED to sibling abuse. For you, it may have been nonstop bullying, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, manipulation, gaslighting, retaliation, cruelty, violence, and outright criminal actions.

There is a stigma for family estrangement, especially with adult children who cut the ties to one or more family members. It is time to break the stigma. To build awareness. To join together in a safe space to bear witness to each survivor whose last resort was to end the abuse cycle.

May each person who has estranged from their family of origin know that it is not your fault. The perpetrators who abused you must be held accountable.
