I have had less and less need to write about my own estrangements in this blog. I will continue to provide and add to the information online on Estrangements.com which is separate from this blog. The last planned post will be one with links to searches on the topic of estrangements.
A year ago I was writing less and less in this journal. When I was contacted by my daughter, I experienced so many feelings and had a great deal to think and write about through the fall, winter, and spring. The result was that I gained a greater acceptance of the way that things are and a greater, if sadder, understanding of why they are.
I have been in the process of letting go for a long time. I am further on that road than I have ever been. I never would have seen this as desirable in 1995 even though early on I recognized the value of accepting what can't be changed. Intellectually I realized the value of acceptance and letting go but that realization didn't sink in at an emotional level until recently.
I have let go not only of people but of the need to write this journal on a regular basis. I will leave you the links, the Daily Quote, the past journal entries, and Estrangement.com. There is plenty to read in the blog and on the website and plenty of links to take you elsewhere for more reading. I don't have anything new to say on the topic at this time.
I hope that your visits here provide you with information that helps.
