my life as a teen girl with divorced parents

by Candi

When I was 3 my parents were divorced. my dad had left us and I went over there on weekends but it never felt the same because I felt like I had to make both parents happy and i didn't know how to do that and me being 13 at the time i was going through a lot i thought boys were the anwser to everything, and than i thought i had fallin in love, and i got my heart broken. At that time i felt like i had know one to talk to my mom didn't understand or didn't even know what was going through my mind. I started cutting myself and i just felt so alone. my brother moved out to live with my dad and that was another guy figure taken out of my life. I have really never had that father figure in my life so i used a razor and to this day i look back at the scars and i think wow did i really do that and i wonder why i didn't ask God to help me, and i ask for forgiveness cause it was a mistake i let my body go to a guy who broke my heart than cut myself and just hurt myself more. I want God in my life i don't want to cut myself, i just want, i need God in my life to be that father figure to help and guide me through the rest of my life for the better. For any girl who cuts themself i no how you feel. You feel like you have no other choice but you really do turn to God and ask him for help.

I totally understand what you are saying! My parents divorced when I was 2 and I blamed myself. I thought of all kinds of ways I could ease the pain, but the only true way to get rid of the pain is to give it to God!

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

Divorces are awful things. My parents divorced at 5, do either of you remember them together? I have videos but other then that no... I can't see how they ever fell in love. My Mum's a such a positive person and my dad a negative...

My parents were both catholic back then, now my Mother is a four square gospel, christian and my Dad's an Anglican but anyhow he is living a life in "finding his own truth."

I had no friends either at that time but I was lucky because my Mother always told me that Jesus always loved and would love me but back then I didn't think of it as enough. I wanted to get loved or at least liked by the other kids. Have you ever done that? Put people's thoughts and feelings towards you over Gods? Maybe it's one of those things we do a lot that we try not to do.

God's love will always satisfy.
