Mood: Daily Needs
Eating: too many pills -_-'
Call me naive, but personally, I can't seem to understand why people are distressed when they're parents get divorced. I am actually curious as to why.
Personally, I have been asked by my therapist some time ago whether or not I would want my parents to get divorced. I said yes. She said why. I said because they're fights are horrible and probably destructive in their own way. She then proceeded to do what any stereotypical therapist would do and ask me how I felt about divorce and how would I feel if they were to get one. I told her my only worry would be who would take the house, where would I live, who would be closer to school. Call me selfish, really, cause all those thoughts are, but honestly, I don't know.
I just wouldn't feel guilty or sad or even angry. I wouldn't feel the distress. It would be disorienting at first for sure, but it's not something that I would freak out about. I feel like some people who do need to switch parents with me cause I feel nothing towards things like that and some kids are traumatized by it. Some people think that the divorce is a blessing, others not so much. I have come across all sorts.
I have tried so many times to understand why other people seem to get all worked up over it, I have run through many scenarios of what would happen if my parents got divorced and I wouldn't really think much of it. I think my parents' lives would actually be easier.
I don't know. It's something I didn't experience and something I have yet to understand. It's one of those things that I would actually want to be educated on and expand my scope on how other people are affected by such events.
