You can pick your friends, the old saying goes, but you can’t pick your family. Sometimes, though, you can unpick them. Family estrangements can happen for any number of reasons – abuse, addictions, divorce, disapproval about life choices, and so on – and can be devastating to those involved. Sometimes a rift between two members can cause an entire family to split as others take sides. Join us this Wednesday as we talk about family estrangements – what causes them, how to heal them, and how to know when it’s better to stay apart.
