How Divorce Changed My Life

Improved Essays
Having to grow up at a young age without your mother or father has been always a hard situation to deal with. Being from a broken home, it definitely changed my perspective in life. Not knowing when I was going to visit my dad in the beginning was difficult. I was always with my dad and would do everything with him, but things have changed since the divorce of my parents. The moment that I realized my life was going to change forever was the day that we had to leave my house and go stay with my grandma and grandpa. Not being able to control what happened between then and fix it was a hard thing that to accept. My brothers and I always wanted to be a family and try to fix the issues that were going on, but it wasn’t up to us, it was up to our parents and as we grew older we realized that and had to accept the fact of our parents and us not living in the same house.

I believe it’s one of those things that we don’t realize can affect us in real and subtle ways. I learned that even though this event was something that I would have to live with the rest of my life, I accepted it and made the best out of it. My parents separating and getting a divorce didn’t affect the way I felt about my Dad, it didn’t make me love him any less because I live with my mother. It made me appreciate the things in life that I did have, and the people who were always there for me. I also realized that it was best for my parents to divorce because it was something that they knew they weren 't going to work out. My mom did was she felt was right and I respect her so much for being able to get out of the relationship, and not stay with someone who wasn’t treating her right. My mom eventually found someone else that could make her happier then anyone else, and this shows that even after a bad divorce she had the strength to move on and get over

    Maybe we know our parents will always forgive us, so we lost our patient. The closer the person we face, the less patient we have to them. We usually ignore their feelings when we get angry with them. I think I have insight on this mistake and I am glad that I could realize my fault in time, and now I have already changed my behavior to my parents. Trying not to vent my negative emotions to my mom and to understand her more by asking more of her stories, now I found that there are fewer conflicts between us, compared to the past.…

    Eventually we would start to make decisions of leaving Vegreville to go visit our mom, only because we wanted to, not because it was “her turn” to have us. At other times and different ages we would decide to stay with our dad. As we grew up, we realized that when our parents would get mad at us for not wanting to go, or for wanting to, we realized they weren’t mad at the decision we made or at us. They weren’t disappointed that we still loved both of them equally. We realized they would be upset at themselves, not with each other, but their own self.…

One day my parents won’t be here and I don’t want to look back as and think of the bad times, but all the good ones. Even though my parents can drive me crazy and I know I do the same to them, I just need to get in the good habit of just getting over it and fixing the mistake. I understand why they do it, when I have…

    Thinking about it now I feel it was the best solution, because my mom and dad are both happy even though they are not together anymore. The only other outcome I can see what could of came from this conflict was for my parents to get back together after taking a break from each other. Truly I believe it would have been worse of an outcome because still someone in the relationship would not have been in love or been happy with the outcome and there would always been some sort of tension between them. Dividing up my parent’s assets was one of the major obstacles which needed to happen before anything could happen. There was also the obstacle of waiting on emails between the two lawyers, which was very time…

    But it is a different story for me because even though my mother and father had a way to communicate, it was rare to hear from my father. My mother tries each day to call him or call anyone that she senses have connections with my father. It was difficult for me to accept the reality that my father will not always be there; the feeling of abandonment began to set it. The years go by and in those years, I realized that my father did not want anything to do with his children and I learn to it. As I got older, an anger for him grew inside of me.…
