Estrangement carries words like isolation, disconnection, dirty, and shame with it. It is a message that says you are not enough, there is something intrinsically wrong with you and the act of estrangement is the ultimate act of shaming. There is no resolution or happy ending. One or both parties have chosen to give up. Estrangement impacts family, work environments, cultures. Everything we do has impact and the impact of estrangement is splitting.
I have been having a lot of fun writing to my facebook community. And I have really been enjoying the comments and support. Here are some of my posts to my non-facebook readers.

Fortunately, we still hear ‘call’ and invitation, but to respond fully many of us have to turn into an intense fear of change and face the shadow of unworthiness.
