- Book Intro
Why do I get hurt by those closest to me? Why do I still feel lonely or distant when I'm with my family? Why do my emotions explode toward my family? Why do the pains of my parents get passed down to my children? The problems surrounding a family are usually passed down from pain suffered by previous generations. When we look back on the wounds received from family members and how we suffer, we can see how those wounds affect others and even find solutions. This book offers insight into viewing oneself and one's family from a new perspective, clarifies the causes of problems, and offers solutions for healing. Readers will be able to empathize with the various family cases included in this book. Furthermore, they will gain a new perspective on their own families and find healing.
