Good, bad, tough, or awkward. I just really wondered if people, really, understood. When I was younger I experienced the splitting of my parents. The people that I have seen as in love for quite some time had completely turned around for the worse. I was seven years old when all of this started so I did not quite understand all the little details of their divorce. In the video Stubborn Love a little girl is experiencing just these things. She reminded of me because everything started with confusion and frustration. I was not being told what I was supposed to know. When I was seven years old there were many things I could have handled. I was a very strong girl on the inside. The little girl in the video was very tough inside. Throughout the car ride you saw her grow and put on a smile. She as long as me could handle tough things. If I was told more about divorce and the things that went into it I would have had many more options. Lots of times people think you are just too young. If people told me things as they came and did not hold back, I would have grown into a much stronger person. A major part of my life was experiencing my parent’s divorce. This took an emotional toll on me and helped me obtain morals. If I was told something other than, “Your Dad is going to move away for a little,” my life would have been much easier. Sometimes children just need things told to them straight so they grasp a better understanding of something earlier in life. I am lucky my dad did not take us to court because I had not a clue about some things. Children should be more informed about divorce, to allow them to make more decisions.
