That is really a tough situation to deal with. Being a part of a family that comes apart. Being from a broken family must have had some impact on you. I myself do not come from a broken home however I have suffered in different ways. Sometimes childhood can be hard especially when you feel lost within your own family circle. Losing friends can become a result of not having enough stability in your home and I can see that upsets you and affects you pretty profoundly. You seem like a smart girl and I believe that you can overcome all of this by being the mature individual that you are. You probably needed to grow wiser beyond your years because of this situation and it is sad when kids have to grow up too fast. I believe a lot of times that parents really need to step up and be more nurturing and make the children feel more secure especially if there are constant changes going on. You have to move around and changes happen too much for you to feel like you belong anywhere. I really wish you the best and hope that you can make the most out of adversity. There may be more times in life that you will experience challenges. It is kind of the way life goes. Never a dull moment. Good luck and take care.

i have a hard time with this too. i can make friends all day long but keeping them i an issue. i mean we dont fight et i just start slowly fading away from them for no reason. i moved alot when i was a kid. never stayed with one person long. i was shipped from one house to the next. i always made friends fast but always moved fast too. i mean like every 4 months we moved. when i say move i mean different states etc not just down the road. it was hard. i got use to it though.

This is the worst thing that can happen to someone. Home means love, security, happiness, togetherness, bonding, caring for each other, adding new members to it etc. A broken home makes you devastated. Though I have not faced it I can feel your pain. But God is great, he gives you that strength to come out of this situation. Don't worry but some better friends are maybe waiting for you. Best of luck.
