  1. My parents horrible marriage and divorce had a big impact on me ……. Since my father was an alcoholic which made him basically nonexistent in my life …… I grew up and became a woman with such low self esteem, I was a perfect target for a narcissist.
    My parents divorce did give me more sleep and less anxiety as a child, as there were no more drunken fights to keep me up at night. Had my dad just been a good dad, even being divorced from my mom …. it would have been a game changer.
    So it wasn’t my parents divorce ….. it was his alcoholism that negatively affected me and the reason for the divorce to begin with. And had they stayed married ….. it probably would have been even worse ….. and I shutter even thinking of that outcome.

  2. My parents divorced when I was nine a long time ago… It affected me later in life and my own marriages with insecurity and not the proper skills to handle conflict
