FAMILY DISAPPEARED PODCAST: How to Embrace Unconditional Love While Fighting Parental Alienation and Estrangement Part 1 – Episode 44

When love comes with strings attached, it can entangle our hearts and minds in ways that are hard to unravel. This episode shines a light on entanglements with transactional love, revealing the profound shifts in mindset afforded by the unconditional love experienced through a 12-step recovery program.   In this episode, we have a group discussion, sharing the raw and transformative journey from seeing ourselves as mere objects in a transaction to recognizing our inherent value and worthiness of love, care, and healing.

The road to accepting love without conditions is paved with self-discovery and often, a great deal of discomfort.  This candid discussion transcends individual stories, touching on the universal challenges we face when confronted with love that doesn’t ask for anything in return. Prepare to be moved as we trace the indelible marks left by the love we grew up with, and how it shapes the love we give and allow ourselves to receive.

Healing is a personal odyssey—unique, ongoing, and deeply human. This episode invites you into the heart of that process, exploring the role of Parental Alienation Anonymous and the 12-step program in fostering self-love and the ability to accept love from others. You’ll hear tales of parenting amidst the pain of estrangement, the search for joy in the midst of loss, and the courage to embrace the love we deserve. Join us as we navigate the complex emotional landscapes of our lives, finding hope and solidarity on the path of recovery.
