Can you ever come to terms with the thought that you won't see part of your family again?
I have been estranged from my son and his family for two years. I arranged for us to meet to discuss how we could move forward and be part of each others lives again.
We met, and it didn't go well at all. His whole body language [ and the way he spoke to me ] said he just didn't want to meet, but was only doing it as an exercise to prove a point in that he had made an effort. We went back and forth, but it was obvious that he really doesn't want me in his life. He then left.
He has estranged himself from all other family members as he felt they were taking sides.
I feel very sad and upset that there is little hope for us and no way forward, and can't imagine not seeing him and his family again. To those who have been living this for years, how do get through this?
