We’re a close family, and when something unfortunate like this happens, it’s hard on everyone. I can’t imagine how tough it must be to not get to see Nana before she died. He’s really upset that I told him she was going to be okay, but I was wrong. He’s having trouble facing the grief, and instead, those intense emotions are redirected at me in the form of anger.

Like in the quote from “The Ship Shape” by David Sedaris, the father expected the family to be excited about the promises, but instead they were disappointed because they had been let down numerous times. Being continuously disappointed by a person can also lead to future problems such as not trusting the person, which eventually jeopardizes the relationship. This situation was true for both Sedaris and me. In both situations, people to whom we were close to made promises, but never delivered.
From Gary’s verbal communication, one can ascertain that he was a big introvert who greatly wanted to be left alone.

American Journalist, Helen Rowland said, “ When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn’t a sign that they don’t understand each other, but a sign that they have, at last, begun to” (1). Divorce means the ending of a marriage by legal separation, thus, a couple that were once bonded together have now separated for opposing reasons. Divorce has hurt and destroyed many families across the world and can cause a lot of negativity. Teens often do not know how to deal with the fact that their family is no longer whole and they will transition into a depression. Teens may experience emotional damage by seeing the two most important people in their lives fight constantly.

These problems affect my father’s life daily, because he is in a job that is stressful and he does not seem to be interested in. This is why everyone should be the person they want to be and not what they can easily be.
Divorce has a major negative effect on the parents as well as they have to support and counsel their children who may be involved in the process and are suffering too. Families who are going through a divorce or a parental divorce if it is the spouses or the children are going to experience series of emotional stages due to the post-breakdown (Smith, 2009).

Also, families who are coping and managing all the tasks associated with divorce can also lead to anxiety, panic, and depression. The spouses who are straightly involved in the divorce experience different ranges of emotions as they being adults direct the daily tasks and responsibilities of living under the circumstances of a divorce (Smith, 2009).
I believe that this was the time when he realized that the separation from his parents did not mean death but finding his own place in the world. However, this left him with an increased amount of anxiety, which led him towards making his own mistakes learning that life is not always easy as it seems. Because of his anxiousness he soon began developing symptoms of a ‘hypochondriac’ as he associated even a “minor ache as a medical emergency” (Ostwald, 1997).
