Parents that just won't divorce
For the past 6 years, my parents have been on and off arguing about different things, and most of the arguments they have are what I'd consider trust breaking, and worthy of considering divorce. Both of my parents each have their own problems (dad drinks, mum seems to get a rise out of arguing) so sometimes it actually ends up with the police getting involved, sometimes even taking one of them away for the night. I've recently gotten to the point where even when they're not arguing, I just feel on edge, waiting for the next argument to explode and it gets so exhausting wondering if every raised voice is just one of them talking to the other from a different room or if the next spat is about to begin. I've told them how their arguments make me feel, I've even seen a counsellor, but I just don't feel like they get it. I was hoping maybe I could find someone on here who has experienced something similar and can understand how I feel, or possibly even give some advice on how to not feel like this all the time.
