I knew this was coming for years, but I never really thought they would actually get divorced. I told both of them I'm fine, but I've been spending all my free time crying about it and I feel like I'm overreacting. They don't know I'm so emotional over it because I don't want them to know, but it's really been affecting me. I'm in college, but I live at home and my mom told me my dad has to move out by the beginning of the summer.
If any of you have parents that got divorced, how did you deal with it? I also don't want to tell any of my friends about it yet because I feel overwhelmed.

Sorry for your loss. Divorce is sort of like experiencing the death of your family unit. It will take much much time and many tears and still you'll never be unaffected by it.
Know that this doesn't mean they love you any less. And thank them. . . yes thank them for staying together for as long as they did because I'm sure it wasn't all that easy for them.1

Ahhh I'm sorry!
They say it's easier when your parents divorce when you're older, but I have to disagree.. As a child, you grow up with life having adjusted to it.. But at 20 life is just with your parents together, and that's how it should stay.. That's how it feels anyway, right?
Your mum and dad will expect you to cry about it! It's just natural, don't feel guilty for being affected.. It's a huge thing for and it's going to take a while to get used to life changing.
It isn't all bad though!
2 birthdays, 2 Christmases haha..
And I know you probably absolutely don't want this under any circumstance right now, but eventually your parents will both move on and be happy again.
And they're our parents, all we want is for them to be happy right?
You don't need to talk to your friends about it all straight away, but if can realllllly help.. I definitely needed my friends around me at that time.
Of course the whole of GaG is here for you! Hope you're okay lovely.. Things WILL be okay! ❤️3
