There isn't space to put all I want in the title, but I want to create this group for adult children who feel marginalized by their family structure, by one or both parents, or who feel that they have a parent who doesn't understand them, a parent who exhibits extreme favoritism toward a sibling, or a parent who is self-absorbed, selfish, or narcissistic. I want the group to be a private, safe and healthy place to support each other. Humans need to feel connected with others and loved and cared for by others to thrive, and, when we don't get this from our family units, we may suffer. I am not striving to create a group where we aggravate our difficulties by discussing only what's wrong, but where we have a group that feels like home, where we can offer each other coping strategies and encouragement to lead full lives even if we sometimes feel something is missing. I will strive to keep the group as private as possible. For that reason, I am not revealing much personal information unless you join. Thank you for respecting that.
