Creating Family Harmony
When a family unit is healthy, music happens. Just as the strings on a guitar must be tuned to each other to produce a lovely sound, so must members of a family be attuned to each other in order to resonate harmoniously. Every family has its own challenges, many handed down through generations. Whether you are a parent raising your children, or an adult seeking to improve your relationships with your parents and siblings, you can learn to improve family dynamics.
Recognizing that you are all interconnected is the main thing to remember. Keep your family connections alive with simple gestures like a phone call, letter or birthday card. Learn to listen more and judge less. Seek out counseling if needed and know that working on your own self-awareness is vital to staying strong and healthy. Just as your body needs healing from time to time, so does your family—so keep it relative!
