Christian Slater recently opened up about mending his relationship with his father, actor Michael Hawkins, after an estrangement that lasted for years.
Slater, a dad of two, also said that he hadn't spoken to the Amityville Horror actor in nearly a decade. Though he still hasn't seen Hawkins in person in a few years, Slater said: "In the last few months my father actually reached out to me and wanted to reconcile and reconnect. Welcome to our WebsiteAble Solution Counseling Ministries’ mission is to restore individuals to the “image of God” in which each was individually created before sin, by the empowering Spirit of God ordained as the Counselor and Comforter of man’s soul. Whatever ails you, detachment from parents, anxieties, a lack of a purpose for living, failures and discouragements?
Your being alive today is no accident nor is it incidental but intentionally designed to be so by God, the creator of heaven and earth. Reasons that reconciliation does not happenIgnorance: We may not realize that we have hurt and estranged someone.
Unexpected offensesSometimes people will approach us and let us know that we have offended them in any way. If we respond to the person we have offended with denial, anger, and righteous indignation, we have pride that we need to deal with.
We also need to accept that our offense may have negative consequences and impact other relationships around us.

Writer Kathleen Jowitt on how she learnt to stop leaving part of her identity at the church door. He said in the interview that his 16-year-old son, Jaden, is moving in with him and his wife, Brittany Lopez, 27. Caught in that “stuck state?” Communicating with the counselor who anchors their confidence in the power of the Creator God will help you to make personal connection with the God who is “Able”.

It also helps the other person to have the opportunity to express their feelings and helps them to find closure as well. Telling people that we are sorry helps us to get rid of the guilt we feel for hurting others and helps us to forgive ourselves. In time, though we can either find the closure we need to put the past behind us, and hopefully, can enjoy the benefits of a healthy relationship.
I am then accused of being so sensitive that I see where I have "wounded" people in every statement I make. Everything you say here is so true, and if we have hurt someone we will never be able to be really free of the burden until we can reconcile, or apologise. From a tumultuous, back-and-forth relationship, we were able to begin to build a better bridge for the both of us. Jesus told us that if we feel that someone has something against us, we should go and be reconciled to them before making an offering to God (Matthew 5:23-24).
