My daughter has not talked to me in over 20 months

September 22, 2009 at 6:03 pm in Family & Relationships by Silverwolf

I am learning to let go of controlling others lives, especially my daughter, who is 32 years old. We became estranged shortly after my mother died. She helped to raise my daughter since I was a single parent.

I have tried to get her to talk with me but to no avail. We do not live near one another so it is even harder to stay in contact. I work daily at letting this go and letting her just come to me but at times I feel there could be something I could be doing to mend the anger she has towards me.

Any suggestions on this?
