What You Need to Remember When Your Dad Finds Love Again After Your Mom Passed Away

Recently, my cousin got a trouble coping with the fact that her dad is getting married again, a few years after my aunt passed away.

I’ve never been in her shoes, but then again it seems to me that her other siblings could handle it better. They’re more understanding with the idea of their dad getting married. After all, we’re all adults and theoretically speaking, it seems easier to understand the reason for what our parents do these days.

So if you’re like my cousin, who finds it hard to accept the idea of how there will be another ‘woman’ that is not your mom around the house you grew up in, maybe you need to remember some things before rejecting the idea of what makes your dad happy.

5 Deal Breakers When We Talk (Despite The Fact That We’re Not Exactly In A Relationship)

So, after a few months thinking that I got my OKCupid account blocked, it turned out I just forgot the e-mail address that I used for the account. Silly me, I know… But now that I found out, I recently get active on the dating site. Again.

Some Things I’ve Learned from Being Almost 30 and Still Single

5 years ago, I would have pictured myself being someone’s wife and mother, boy was I wrong!

Last weekend, I went out for a drink with my girls. It was the three of us, and all of us are approaching the age of 30 and we’re all single too. We had a good time together, from going for some grocery to talking some random things about life.

That, until one of them, burst out the mystery that she has kept for years. It was about the end of her relationship with her long-term partner. She’s the kind of person who could have kept everything for herself forever, so I’m glad that she could open up even though it took years for her to move on and tell us what happened.

But then a wise person would tell you not to cry because it’s over. Instead, smile because it happened. And it’s true.
