We are all sons and daughters of our parents. How healthy are the relationships in our family?
I am a child from a family who lost her mother early. Also my younger brother.
My father married again and we got a step mother and a step brother. A little later, our half -brother was born.
We were a composite family that was appearing as homogeneous, picked unit. But when we grew up and created our own families, we experienced differences that still affect our relationships today.
Personally, I am a type of person who can easily connect, I am open and forgiving. Unfortunately, this doesn't help me much in our family, because I have little or almost no contact with my step mom, half-brother and step brother, only on my own initiative.
We do have a good relationship though with my brother and his family. I also established a good relationship with my late father in the last years of his life, but he had to get sick first so that I could experience him as a father, which I missed in my childhood.
I can hardly remember the contact with a long-lost mother, but she is lovingly written in my heart.
I learned to be a good parent to myself. Unfortunately, however, only at the time of growing up of my dear children, for them I am infinitely grateful.
Every day, step by step, I improve my relationship with myself and I am grateful for my new partnership with the man with whom we are building a new, beautiful, healthy relationship.
I can only say: through the storm and through all the suffering, with clear faces we go to free days.. (verse translated from a slovenian partisan song ..)
All that was necessary for me to have relationships today, as I once could only dream of, or didn't even know how to dream of back then.
