Tape it Back Together by yuumei Tape it Back Together by yuumei
My family has a complicated history of separation, immigration, divorce, and remarriage. I won't go into the details but my mom often said to me "It's my life, my choice, I do what I want. You have no right to judge me."

I'm 18, but as a 9 year old child at the time, I couldn't repeat what she said. I could only wonder "Your choice in life affects me too."

Divorce is such a fad these days. Half the people I know have divorced parents, and most of them aren't happy about it. I understand in some situations divorce is the only way, but when your choice affects more than just you, think of the consequences and choose wisely.

With that said, I also wrote a short visual novel about the subject and an interactive narrative .

I had a problem with my girlfriend six months ago,which lead us apart. When she broke up with me,I was no longer myself,I fill so empty inside.And i dont know what to do,I feel my life has come to an end because she was my first love.I went for counselling and advice online and i saw so many good comment about a spell caster on how he help them to solve their relationship and marriage issues.I email the spell caster on the email which was provided in the comments on (relationshipspellgmail. com) and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me to briefly make the long story short, Before I knew what happened,after 48 hours,my girlfriend gave me a call and she came back to me and told me she was sorry about what happen and beg for forgiveness, I’m so grateful to these spell caster and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet just for the good work he did for me.If you need his help,you can email him at RELATIONSHIPSPELLgmail. COM  I will forever be grateful to him.He is the perfect solution to relationship and marriage issues.

I'm one of the minority whose parents are still together, it seems. I can't relate too much, but I'm so sorry for anyone who has to deal with this.

"I can do what I want" or "don't you want me to be happy" are stupid and selfish reasons to hurt someone. Does anyone think past their own want anymore?

This is a really amazing picture and I know how that feels. For years my dad jumped from woman to woman, inviting them to live in our home. Affecting my little brother and I greatly. When I asked him about it: he said- well don't you want me to be happy?!. Both my parents put us in the middle of their fights and they still do. My mom
Constantly thinks I'm "working for my dad" and calls me "fucked up" or "disgusting" and that was just two days ago.


They've been divorced for six years....

I guess some parents just don't realize how bad they tear their children apart sometimes.

Thank you for this deviation. I'm in a place right now where I feel very alone, it means a lot to me to see that others have also gone through such trials, & have come out of it; so I will as well, with enough time. I am terribly sorry for your pain, and for the pain of anyone whom shares this story, like myself. In my case it was definitely for the best, given the toxicity of one parent, but it still hurts, it still sucks. Many hugs & hot cocoa to all of you, to all of us. <3

then tell them

if they deny it and stuff then something bad happens and it affects you too tell them "i told you so"

im joking but you should try telling them. nothing will change if you keep it all bottled up inside

   I did tell them about our problems. Some of them have been solved, some of them have gone beyond control, such as the fact that my parents are now divorced, but I hope that everything we've been dealing with will change for the better. Thanks for your advice, I'm really grateful

   I used to hiding stuffs like my feelings, sadness, thoughts,.. from my mother and my friends. The price of that is now I have heart disease, it's sort of incurable and I'm only 16 years old. The doctor said it was because I had suffered from stress for too long so yes, concealing your feelings is no good at all. Thank you for your thoughtful advice again

My mom says that when i get old enough to protect myself, she wishes to divorce my father. He yells at us all the time and can be dishonest. She always says that she wants to find true love since this is her second marriage and the last wasn't too great either... I feel so sorry for her but we both wish to have a happy family. 

As soon as i saw this I started crying, because i feel the same way.

This made me cry. My parents are not divorced, but my father recently moved out, and I don't know why. He is still nearby, and they still love each other, but it's still hard. To be able to evoke these emotions in people, you are a truly skilled artist.

No words could've given me this feeling of one witnessing the separation of his/her parents. 
But when I came across this post, I had this intense sting in my heart as if I felt that I was indeed that girl. Even though my parents are together, I felt it, the pain, the agony and I only wish to say this that this work of yours gave the very essence of "living together" which was far beyond worth 1000 words. This piece will forever rest with me.

Very very true kikicat2001. My parents are divorced as well for almost 4 and a half years now. Even though it basically tore my older sister apart and she went through some hard times but we both pulled through together and now we visit both parents equally. At those times I was glad I had good friends to consult with and they supported me.

This is the flaw with love in general, because most of the time it is based around your sexual attraction towards others rather than their personality, so when the latter is not considered and instead they just blindly get seduced when the sex is over they could actually hate each other and then after they've married they realize that they actually hate each other. And that is why humans are terrible at the game of love.

Hello
 My name is Katie Morgan, and I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me in bringing back the love of my life. I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like DOCTOR CANDOVA this world would be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell castes promised to help them but couldn't but with DOCTOR CANDOVA I tell you your problem is solved already. My Husband and I had been apart for 3 YEARS  and I couldn't bear without living without him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster call DOCTOR CANDOVA and how great his work is. I contacted him via email candovalovespell@yahoo.com immediately and follow the step that he ask  and in the next 48 hours my ex lover called me and was eager for my forgiveness and that he wished nothing more than to have me in his arms forever. I filled so much joy and happiness that I found DOCTOR CANDOVA, I hope you all here will find this testimony of mine and get your husband back in just 48 hours. DOCTOR CANDOVA contact is CANDOVALOVESPELL@YAHOO.COM or you can call him on +2347030393888 you are the next to share your testimony to every one.
