Are your parents divorced? And if so, how do you handle it mentally?
My parents are and I'm already struggling 2 years with it. Any advice?

My parents got divorced since I was 5 years old. I am now 25 years old. My relationship with my father seems to go from bad to worse: why, you might ask?
My father cheated on my mother after 20 odd years of marriage and six kids...
My father NEVER apologised to my mother. My father NEVER apologises for anything... I told him that I didn't like it that he was making himself look like the victim: my mum was left with nothing, two children (me and my brother who is five years older) and a f***ing bitch trying to get rid of her. He blamed her for leaving to find a life back in her home country - both me and my brother left in the care of our semi-older brother under the same roof as my father.
So yeah, I will never forgive my father for taking away everything from us; not unless he actually apologises. However, it doesn't mean I don't love him, and I know how to deal with him (60% of the time)...
You have to be strong, knowing that its not your fault and allowing yourself to be upset and angry might help, I can only say that with time you will accept it, you will understand both their sides: its important to know both stories, and know the truth so that later it won't hit you again.1
