My Experience With Divorce

Improved Essays
When I was little I thought the world would be a good place but really it’s not. My life isn’t perfect, but my parents always wanted the best for me. My family started drifting apart when I was in the fifth grade. Their divorce made a great impact on me. I had thought the divorce was just temporary because I would see my parents talk & hang out around home at times. But little did I know that they were discussing about how are we going to be a family & how the situation had affected my siblings & me. My family is really important to me because they are everything I have. As months started passing by i’d go to my family reunion & also family parties in durango,mex. but it wasn’t always fun. Both my dad’ & mom’s side of the families …show more content…
Entering high school i changed completely. I changed how i acted towards people & that way i was at school. My dad noticed & told me how proud he was. I know i was overcoming their divorce before I wouldn’t want to talk about it, but now it’s like it doesn’t bother me. I was so glad for myself. Others & myself started to like who i was becoming because the old me was just ugly. Not in anyway would i go back. My dad has always been there for me & taught me how to do my best in everything. Also to work hard for what i want in life. I knew i didn’t want to have the life my parents had because it was so horrible for both us as their children & them as parents. Others may say they understand the situation i was or am in but really nobody can relate close to how i felt & was back then. My dream is to become someone better & actually say i made it to where i wanted to be. Even though i don’t know what to do or where to go exactly with my life i just want to be able & say i made what i wanted to be made. Just to be able to live a good happy life with maybe more challenges that i can overcome & go further …show more content…
Did somewhat better but i know i could’ve done way more. Throughout all that i was impressed by, with the progress i have made. But also about my family & me were going good. Even though we all were separated we still managed to stick together through thick & thin. Both my parents moved on from each other & found new partners to be happy once again. Bringing someone new to the family might be somewhat difficult in my opinion. Like my parents since they are in their early 40’s they need to know who they will end up with again & if me & my siblings will like that person as their partners. I like both of my parents partners at the moment but they aren’t like someone I’ve known for a long time to be able to say I love them to death & what not. My life wasn’t as i had thought or wanted it to be but i cannot do anything about it. Even though my family is all separated & or with new members part of it, it isn’t a bad life to have. My life isn’t as different but it’s unique in it’s own

    I know they made sacrifices like coming to a new country to provide my siblings and I a better future but I never really thought of it. My parents divorced when I was 10 years old. I remember feeling very relieved that they were finally thinking more about their own happiness and not just about think about what my siblings and I would think. My older sister who was 11 years old and I saw it coming but my brother was just a baby and does not have memories of what having my parents together. I’m not saying that having them together was awful but you could tell they did not love each other the way they did in the past by how distant and avoidant they acted towards each other.…

    I’d have to be pretty resilient for that, right? However, I just didn’t know how to write about it. Instead of having to deal with this challenge as an actual hurdle, I grew up depressed; because I was ill from such a young age, the hurdle was my entire mindset. It wasn’t an option I felt I could write about. Another topic I wanted to write about was my family’s history of moving as a result of my father’s job.…

    Fortunately, my mom was receiving child support from my father after the divorce, but not all parents can say that after a separation. There are many effects on children that come from a divorce and a select few of them include: major moving/family adjustments, being caught in the middle, and even relationship issues. One way a kid can be affected by when their parents get divorced is the adjustment to moving around and possibly meeting a new family. Going on vacation away from home is always fun for a kid. However, when a child is forced to move to a new house or even change to a new school, the excitement of traveling seems to diminish a bit.…
