Choosing to Build a Relationship With Your Father in Your Adult Years | Choosing to Let the Hurt Go and Move Forward

29m | Jun 10, 2024

Are you considering reconnecting with a family member? Are you ready to finally give your inner child a voice in order to heal?

This summer, we are switching things up. Welcome to Summer Stories: Celebrating Our Narratives. In this episode, guest host Karijah “KP” Pinkney takes us on her personal journey on how she made the decision to confront the past and allow space to reunite with a parent in adulthood. 

This week’s Affirmation is “I choose to make space for people in my life, regardless of kinship.”  

3 Biggest Takeaways:

  • You have the full control to choose who is in your life, regardless of kinship.
  • Letting go of the pain is for them and you.
  • Hold space for your inner child, when confronting hurtful events and people who have caused pain.

In the end, choose who you want in your life. No one can make that decision for you. But choosing to open your heart and mind to new possibilities and relationships can bring the healing you’ve been looking for.
