   My first counseling session was, at the least, very awkward and non-helpful. I didn’t even want to go but my parents thought that it would be good for me to express how I was feeling. Yeah right!! It’s them that need counseling; they can’t even have a conversation without yelling at one another. Even though I didn’t want to go, I did for the sake of keeping some peace in my home. After a while I noticed that I wasn’t as angry as I use to be. Having someone actually listen to me made me feel like someone cared about how my parent’s decision was affecting me.

“Okay….well my name is Natalia and my parents are getting a divorce.”

“Hi….umm my name is Cadmar and my parents are separated.”

Those were the first words that Cadmar and I said to each other. I don’t know what it was that made me open up to him but I did. I told him everything that I was feeling and everything that was going on at home; how my parents are constantly yelling and fighting, how angry I felt toward them for not even considering how this would affect me, and how I just can’t stand being around them anymore.  The entire time he just sat there and listened to me vent, he had a look of understanding and compassion on his face as if he knew that I needed to talk to someone. Most of the counseling sessions went that way, I thought that it was odd but I didn’t say anything in hopes that he would open up on his own.
