Support in Healing from Family Issue
Healing from pain always requires work. But healing from pain that has been inflicted by a parent is among the most difficult to heal from because we know intuitively that our parents are supposed to nurture us and help us heal when life causes pain. We are programmed to think that they should not be the sources of pain. But sadly, sometimes they are. Laurie Grengs is a family counselor who understands the complex dynamics of families. She will provide support in healing from difficult family issues.
As part of the process of healing, Laurie Grengs’ work with you would likely include gaining greater understanding of the unique family dynamics that have been present in your life. Understanding such dynamics can help you not only resolve some or all of your own specific issues, but change the patterns in your life that might otherwise mean continuing problematic behavior in other relationships.
Healing From Pain Associated With A Relationship With A Toxic Parent
To begin the process of healing from the pain of a relationship with a toxic parent, Laurie Grengs may recommend some or all of the following ideas and/or messages:
- Ending a relationship with a toxic parent is okay.
- It is also possible that the better choice is not ending your relationship with a toxic parent.
- Be realistic about the possibilities for your relationship with your parent.
- Work to become more self-aware as it relates to your relationships with other people in your life. We employ strategies in life largely because they are successful. But when things get complicated by a parent’s toxicity, it is possible to lose perspective and implement strategies that are not always healthy for us.
- It is important to recognize your own patterns in relationships so you do not inadvertently employ toxic behavior yourself.
- Recognize that you deserve to have a life filled with love and self-respect.
