Family Leave

The relationship I have with my family is based upon performance more than affection. It is conditional.

The amount of success I achieve. The perfection of my frame and appearance. The manner within which I express myself. These are the expectations. It is conditional.

If I meet the goals set for me the amount of critiques I receive is lessened. If I do not meet the criterion - there is hell to pay. It is conditional.

Family relations are among the most challenging that we will experience in our lives. We are taught to respect and honor our parents. The conditions set for their affection are often impossible to attain. The frustrations accumulate and the distance between those who are the closest to us - grows.
