Hate, pain, divorce, jealousy, and low self-esteem is not only a nightmare for the one who’s going through it, but it is also a nightmare for the children that has to see it.
Jewels struggles with the fact that she had everything that a thirteen-year-old girl could ever want: loving parents and a big house on the hill, and in a blink of an eye, her life begins to change. She woke up to words of hate being said to her father and ran toward the voices. All she could see was her mother picking up a vase and throwing it at her father. She ran to her room and screamed. Her mother follows her, Jewels looks into her eyes and with words, no mother ever wants to hear, she says, “I hate you!” All Tracie could do was fall to her knees and began to cry. Unlike Jewels, Tracie was bored with her lifestyle. She had everything she ever wanted, a hardworking husband who provided her with everything she wanted and needed, a loving daughter, and a beautiful home, but all that wasn’t enough, she was still missing something, and she couldn’t put her finger on it.
Will a brother ever get a break? Mike thought. I work my butt off providing for my family and I find out that my wife is not the same person from high school. The doctor walks up to me and said, “Your wife almost overdosed on cocaine.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Cocaine, I thought, when did she start doing cocaine and how could I not have known.
We all go through things on this journey we call life and our choices determine our destination.
