Through a personal autobiographical reinterpretation, the author proposes to give voice to the possible experiences that a parental child may experience along his or her developmental path, particularly within single-parent families, during the delicate and difficult process of individuation. The strength of family loyalty, through those threads that are as invisible as they are powerful, can make one’s need for dif-ferentiation feel like a strong betrayal towards the family, accompa-nied by an overwhelming experience of guilt, which sometimes pre-vents identification. The discovery of reciprocity helps to resize the feelings of resent-ment, guilt and over-responsibility, favouring the passage from the de-sire to "escape" to the lightness of "flight". Because only he who flies in the certainty of having his own secure base is truly free.
Keywords: individuation process, parental child, family loyalty, sin-gle-parent family, sense of guilt.
