ACOD's and Simplicity


Profound statements come from the mouths of adult children of divorce.

Just recently while talking with someone going through the beginning stages of a parental separation the statement was made  
" What used to be simple, isn't simple anymore".

I couldn't help but think how profound and deep that statement is to those whose lives have changed drastically in the aftermath of our parents divorce. Planning a family gathering,  making a phone call,  sending a card, looking through photos, just to name a few things,  aren't ever the same again.

Today I don't have alot to add to that thought.  Just that what used to take little thought or effort, now takes alot of insight and work.  Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by the perseverance needed now.  Take heart,  it becomes easier as time goes on , in some ways.   We also can treat our relationships in a way that helps them become more simple again , as we define our own convictions and boundaries . 

Simplicity in the life of an ACOD takes on a different reality , but it is possible to regain a sense of it through hard work and time. 

If you have heard any profound statements that you would like to share in how it related to Adult Children of Divorce,  I would LOVE to hear from you.  Feel free to comment below so any readers can take part together.
