I am a normal 15 year old sophomore in high school that loves to play volleyball and be with her three best friends. About 6 months ago I thought that my life would change forever. And here is my story.....

My parents have always had their fights and arguments, whether it was mild or major, they always got over it. My parents also were going through alot due to a huge lawsuit in which we are still involved in today.
Anyway, both my parents and us kids were tired of all the bickering, so they decided to be separated for a while with the chance they might get back together. So, my dad moved out and my mom was constantly depressed.
The whole separation was hard, but it was not that hard. She was always onto us kids, so one day I finally asked her what the deal was. She asked me if I really wanted to know and at that time, I didn't realize it, but the way I would forever look at my dad would totally change.
She told me that the real reason that they split up was that my dad had cheated on her for like 2 years. I was devastated. I didn't know whether to be sad, or to punch a hole through the wall. So I called up my dad and let him have it for about an hour. Then I refused to speak to him for about 3 months.
As of right now, we are finally on speaking terms, but things will never be the same as they were before. But, I learned that some things you just have to let God handle, and that would be more punishment than anything I could ever give.
So if you are in the same predicament that I was in, just try to do what God would do and things will work out for the best.
