Thank you for your condolences. You’re saying exactly what I feel! And yes, I do feel distance is healthy for a family relationship. We lead different lives, have different lifestyles and so we tend to disagree on things at time. I think having our own space is very important to maintain a good relationship.

You’re most welcome and thank you for replying! You’re the first person who voices the same sentiment I have about this topic. It’s really good to know that there are others who feel the same too :)
