    Welcome to a place to discuss the loneliness and isolation caused by estranged relationships.

    At Griefline we receive numerous calls from those dealing with the loss of close relationships between parent and child, grandparent and child, siblings, cousins, friends and others.

    It’s often a distressing and confusing situation that can go on for years, with many people moving between feelings of hurt and hope for reconciliation; anger and disappointment; frustration and acceptance.

    This forum is a space to freely share your feelings, to discuss its effects on your life and to share coping strategies that have helped you along the way.

    You can be very lonely in a relationship and when it breaks down it transforms into a different kind of aloneness. How to manage a broken relationship is a big issue and I’m wondering if anyone has an experience of how they did it really well or really bad they can share? Sometimes I fall back on an affirmation I found that says, ” I didn’t leave you because I hate you, I left because I liked myself more.” Being estranged can be about friendships and family, not just partners.
