I tried to do a google search for information on this topic, but am having no luck. All I'm finding are articles on letting go of adult children who have moved back in or need financial care. That's not what I'm looking for. Am I wording my search wrong?
Here's the situation: I have a sibling who is nearly 40 years old. He's particularly self destructive and has over the last several years turned into someone not so nice and no one is particularly wanting to have a relationship with. Most of the family doesn't. And when I say most, I can't think of one who actually does.
My mother is riddled with guilt that her son could have possibly turned out this way, how could she have created a son who would do mean and nasty things. She's sick over it. I've told her time and time again that she needs to let go, she's not responsible for his behavior at this age. She still holds all the burden. I'm looking to find some words of wisdom from an article or a book to help her let go and realize she can't feel responsible anymore for his current behavior.
Can anyone help?
