An adult child of divorce shares their thoughts on divorce and the ever-present impact on their life. A child should have access to both parents. Notably, a child will figure out what happened and express thoughts on what SHOULD have happened.
For me the hardest part of my parents’ divorce was adjusting to having two families. One, that my mom wanted me to be in and one that my mom did not want me to be a part of-with my dad. The divorce doesnt bother me. What does bother me is being made to feel guilty for wanting to spend time with my dad. To say it does not bring pain, doubts, and questions would be a lie.
