children of Parental Alienation abuse often carry a heavy burden of
guilt for what they 'think' they did to the Alienated parent and/or that
parent's family...this guilt may constantly determine the Adult child's
reasoning for not initiating contact and not responding to other's
contact attempts. Until this guilt is realized as false guilt based on
false reasons, thoughts and/or beliefs and is certainly not justifiable,
that burden will remain an obstruction. Keep trying to let your Adult child know you do not hold them responsible for choices they were forced to make as a child.
How may their thinking change when they do realize this fallacy?
''Feeling guilty does not mean I am guilty. I had to think about this
statement a LOT in the process of recovering my self-esteem. I had
examine what I was taught was the truth, and realize what was actually
the truth.'' ~ Darlene Ouimet
