When Family Issues Rear Their Ugly Heads
I often wonder why generally intelligent and well-adjusted people can have such issues between them, especially within the very family units that are expected to behave more kindly to one another.
This is certainly not new, as it spans time in human interaction. Yet, the idealist in me wants to believe that it can be avoided, if simply we were more aware. The problem with that idea is that all the awareness in the world does not account for other differences in understanding, attitudes, or willingness.
There is also the case to be made for how we communicate, which seems to have changed with technology. Expectations are such that modern methods should be the adopted norm for all. This is not always effective, as I suggested in The Challenge of Clear Communication.
Will we ever get it right? Will the hurts and issues in families ever be healed or solved?
It certainly seems that the legacies are passed on from generation-to-generation.
