Read full description of the books Cutting Loose: An Adult's Guide to Coming to Terms with Your Parents:"We're adults. We've got the credentials and scars to show for it." Such beginnings the analysis by Halpern and his no BS conversation with the reader. He uses his metaphor of the dance, the behaviors we exhibit when we're with our family; including dependencies, clownish behavior, feelings of inadequacy and unresolved conflicts. It's a family dance.
Really liked Halpern's tackling the idea that your parents are not always the nurturing guiding forces in our life that we'd like. One of the big tackaways for me is that by looking at the child within your parent (or anyone really), you can take a more compassionate view moving forward.
The book feels comforting even as it gets increaingly more alarmingly - talking toward some uncomfortable subjects and existential questions. But it tackles the subject marvelously.
