Living my truest life

I have stopped talking with my parents twice now in my life: once when I was entering grad school and again starting a few years back. My model:
C: I am not speaking with my parents
T: It’s easier to love and forgive them this way
F: I love them and appreciate them
A: Speak about them with love, think about them with love
R: Live a happy, contented life with love for everyone
My sister hinted recently that living like this is basically the lazy man’s way out. I am not dealing with them and thus not living a life true to my whole self. I agree that it is lazy, however the work required to maintain that relationship is simply more than I want to give. My question is: am I being true to myself while literally not taking on the work of my parents?
