I am trying to emotionally "divorce" my toxic parents. It is difficult and I feel guilty. Does anyone know of an online support group that might be helpful for me? I am struggling with the letting go even though I know I have to do this for my own sanity!
Couseling but I am almost out of sessions on my plan!
Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.
I understand your dilemma. It is a very common one and you are not alone.
Here are support groups and some other resources to help you:
Adult Children of Abusive Parents: A Healing Program for Those Who Have Been Physically, Sexually, or Emotionally Abused by Steven Farmer
Toxic Parents: Overcoming Their Hurtful Legacy and Reclaiming Your Life by Susan Forward and Craig Buck
An Adult Child's Guide to What's 'Normal' by John C. Friel Ph.D. and Linda D. Friel M.A.
You can find the books on Amazon.com or your local library may have them for you.
I hope this has helped,
