    Still Crying
    My parents have been divorced for about 8 months. My dad has a girlfriend they both have their own houses and they get along fine. As far as a divorce goes theirs was about as clean as it gets. But that doesn't make it any easier. I would like to say that I'm totally adapted or that I will adapt soon but I don't think I ever will fully adapt. My parents were the constant things in my life and now they're not. I still cry sometimes and only sometimes because I just try to avoid thinking about their divorce and therefore avoid the crying. I act like I'm okay with everything butt I'm not. Will I ever be okay? Will I ever get over it? I just want things back how they were with my happy family together again. I know you might say it's for the best but it has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. Help me cope please. I need advice on how to adjust to this completely

    I think in time you will realize that your parent were not happy with each other and accept that they still love you and you will be happy yourself as you get use to the new arrangement. It's difficult now because its still pretty fresh and a hard thing to accept probably because maybe you thought things were happier than they were so you were protected by them.

    Reality is it just will take a lot of time to reach the point they have already. Talking to them may help over time to understand their situation with each other. You re still a family, just no longer all under the same roof. They know they will always be connected by you.
