7 STEPS TO BREAKING DOWN THE WALL OF SILENCE

Communication is the key to success in maintaining a successful family business. Yet, many families that adopt avoidance behaviour believe that conflicts will just go away if they pretend they do not exist.

 

When people avoid putting themselves in situations or relationships in which conflicts might arise, they may be depriving themselves of opportunities for important personal growth.

 

Avoidance merely postpones dealing with the conflict and usually allows it to worsen. Time does not heal all wounds.

 

Frustrations are usually exacerbated by avoidance, and misperceptions go unclarified.

 

Avoidance denies parties in conflict the opportunity of using their differences to clarify their relationship and to open their minds to the possibility of improvement.

10 RULES FOR CULTIVATING & MAINTAINING FAMILY CONNECTION

& HEALING FROM FAMILY RIFTS

Sometimes new bridges can be built - a new capacity for loving, honest, and conscious contact can be achieved - between people who had formerly dropped the guillotine on any possibility of communication, much less love. Sometimes the door can be partially reopened, allowing a cooler truce; sometimes, because of inherently uncompro­mising blocks, the door must remain shut, at least for the foreseeable future. 

 

However, whatever the ultimate outcome of family members’ behaviour toward one another, your own private internal healing must come first. Without that, no family rift can be mended or reunion sustained - there can be no real, lasting peace in any family member’s heart. 

 

These suggested rules are geared to free you from those kinds of negative assumptions about what success in a family entails. They are the building blocks of healing from family rifts.
