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 .

You have a poetic mind...

You just cut out my heart and left it on a spike... :) Your work is so good.

Darn, how could she tell you off like that ?! That's downright cruel and irresponsible, of course that sort of choice of life would affect your life, and you'd have a say in that ! I'm myself child of a divorced family, and I'm proud of my mother for leaving my father, but it seems not all parents care about their child the same way... But sure, divorce happens so often, we could call it mainstream.

please stop playing the pronoun game. In this comment who is "She". Not to sound patronising but the "She" in the work is Yuumie herself so I pressume you aren't reffering to that so what are you talking about?
EliTigre Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
Oops, sorry I didn't realise that sooner. At the risk of sounding downright rude, I was refering to Yuumei's mother.

that's cool. So you are unhappy because her mum told her off right? I can relate but that would more be part of "Don't be selfish" rather than this one. Is that what you are reffering to?
EliTigre Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014
Yup, but that works with this one here too.

I'm a child from a divorce family and I know this feeling. Knowing it's not going to happen but still wishing for it.
