Who Is My Parent's Divorce?

Improved Essays
Descriptions The situation I have been dealing with in the past and the present, is my parent’s divorce, which happened in December of 2013. The situation all began from my point of view when my dad had found on my mom’s phone messages from her to another guy. I was not living at home when this occurred, but my sister was and had told me, “dad left the house and I have no idea where he is.” My dad had told my mom, “to get a lawyer.” Because my dad had left the house and was staying at his sister’s house for several months, my mom was staying at the house on the farm with the two dogs. One day my mom and dad were having a normal, peaceful conversation together about the situation when all of a sudden the door bell rung and it was the RCMP. …show more content…
I had initially found out through my sister that mom had had an affair with another man about 14 years ago and this was 8 years into my parent’s marriage. After knowing all of this it made me more blame my mother’s actions for the divorce, because it was bound to happen again. The outcome of this conflict was my sister and I have been greatly affected by our parent’s divorce in ways some people may not see. After about a year of my dad living with my aunt, the divorce had been final, and he was able to move back into his house. My mom and the smaller dog moved into town, she had bought a house close to the other guy’s house she was talking to. Other outcomes which came from this conflict was lots of people’s relationships, which were once there are now gone, and will never blossom again. I feel whenever I am with my mom’s side of the family I cannot say anything about my dad, like now he has found himself a girlfriend and her family. Before this all happened my family had always kept little secrets from one another, but now there are even more and it is driving my fiancé and I crazy. We are always in the middle of everything and even though we do not want to choose sides there are always reasons we want to lean to my dad’s side of the family just under the …show more content…
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

    The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is the kind of universal story that every single person can relate to in certain ways. You can either relate to the struggles of having an alcoholic parents, or draw similarities to parents who are absent from day to day life for one reason or another.

    “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption” is a captivating narration of the impact of empathy and the human spirit. Author Bryan Stevenson works tirelessly to help provide relief for death row inmates who were wrongly condemned, poorly defended, or left to die in America’s overgrowing prison system. He not only offered these people legal advice, but also showed his clients compassion and mercy, which many of them had not previously experienced.

When you experience mercy, you learn things that are…

To me it means, how you identify yourself by your beliefs, attitudes, relationships, anything that affects you, and how they have affected your life and what you take away from them.
