My name is Athala, I’m a broken home child. My parents have divorced, and now I only live with my mother. In this article, I want to share my story with you, with the hope that none of you will ever think of a broken home as a child of a rebel. (Also read : Feeling Alone in Quiet Night)
Being a broken home child is not my willing. If it is permissible to ask God, we also certainly will not want to if we will be born in the middle of a family like this. We are like you, we want to have a harmonious family without a fight, a family that can be used as a place to go home.
I still remember very well when my parents were divorced, my father rarely returned home. Once he returned, his time was only spent fighting with mother. Every night, when I sleep with my mother I often wake up in the middle of the night because I hear someone crying. Yes, my mother is crying. But, in the morning greeting he always showed a smile as if nothing happened.
Even until the time of divorce arrived, the mother did not say anything about the divorce with father. He deliberately covered it from me, because at that time I was sitting in 6th grade elementary school. He was worried that my study would decrease because of this problem.

But actually, I already know about this. I know when he had a fight with my father, when he cried in the middle of the night, also when he was preparing some files to be brought to court. I really never told him about all that, I was also afraid that if I talked about it he would be even more sad. I don’t want to see my mother go on like that.
In the end, the mother told me that she was divorced from father. I just answered “I already know ma’am” at first he was surprised how I could find out about it, slowly I began to explain how I could know about all that.
Honestly, the first time my parents divorced was the most difficult time I’ve ever had. I have to start learning to cover all my problems from other people. Maybe, people who don’t really know you, surely assume I’m a person who doesn’t have the burden of living because I always look happy. You don’t know me too well yet.
At that time, I felt like someone who had the most difficult problems in the world. Impressed indeed, but that’s what I felt at that time.
I always feel sad when I hear stories of my friends who vacation with her parents. I can only put on a happy face when I hear their stories as if I would also be happy to hear their stories.
I think I have become a lawless child at that time, I really hate my father. My father often went to my mother’s house to see me, and I never wanted to see him. I really hate him. Whenever I meet him, I will cry. Somehow. (Also read other article at : Pengertian dan Contoh Majas Pleonasme)
If you want to say I’m an ungodly child and don’t know yourself, it’s up to you guys. You talk like that because you were never in that position.
I was once in a position where everything felt unfair. Everything feels like hostile to me. As if all problems only exist in me. But, I forgot about one thing. That there are still many people out there who have more severe problems than me. They never complained, whereas me? I even felt that I was the most miserable person in the world.
I don’t like it when someone pity me because I’m a broken home kid. I also don’t like it when there are many people looking at broken home kids with one eye.
We are not bad people. We are not rebels. We are still children. We need love from our parents, not screaming fights from our parents. Our only hope. We just want to have a complete family like many kids out there.
Me, Athala Asyafa. A voice from me, representing all the broken home chidren.
