Hi native speakers, i came across these sentences while browsing around on here.
"My parents seem to have cut me off from their lives emotionally." &
"My parents seem to have cut me out of their lives emotionally."
Please help me understand if there's a difference between these two phrasal verbs in this context. Or do they convey exactly the same meaning?
Thanks in advance!

They have a similar meaning to me, though the second is more natural.

"Cut off" usually refers to financial support.
