Moving On From Divorced Parents
By Novni Community Member
If your parents are divorcing, it may hurt a lot. It may tear your world apart. But I'm telling you, from the bottom of my heart, don't let your relationships with your parents fall to the wayside.
Regardless of how horrible the circumstances were, try to get to know your parents as individuals. It doesn't matter if there was betrayal. In the end, none of it matters.
I used to think it was impossible, but over time you can build back the trust you once had.
It will take time to grieve the loss of your family separating, and that's okay. Try your best not to suppress the pain, but instead allow yourself to feel the pain fully so you can embrace it and move on.
There's no easy road, but you must rise above. If not for your mom, dad, brother, or sister, but for yourself. It may feel like you're alone, but the odds are that you most likely know someone else who has divorced parents too.
Divorce is a crappy thing, but it's a common thing. That doesn't make it any easier to deal with, but it does help to know other people are going through similar experiences and you're not alone.
All you can do is make the best out of the cards you were dealt.
