    Have you all seen Caspar Lee on social media? On YouTube or Instagram? Maybe you've seen him as he's been growing his acting career, or vlogging, or launching a new business venture. If you don't know him yet, you're about to, and you're probably about to see him EVERYWHERE, because he is very much on the rise - AND - he's our latest storybooth star!

    But sometimes when we see someone like Caspar we assume that the kind of pain and struggles that we'e been through couldn't have actually happened to him, that the true stories and scary stories we carry around with us are only ours, but in truth, we all have a storytime story to tell, and Caspar's story about his parents' divorce is one that so many share and can relate to.

    But, maybe the way things ended with him and his family, through his parents' divorce, is a little bit different than what we might expect to be normal, but it seems like it can be, or should be, and even though there was a lot pf pain and problems to get through, and a lot of counselling, in the end, Caspar's story time story is a happy one filled with love.

    It all started ten years ago when Caspar's Mother told him something that took him by surprise, sent him into anxiety and sadness that neared depression, and changed his life forever. His mom told him that she had met another man and that she and his father were going to break up and get a divorce. He was shocked, angry, and sad all at once.

    Even though his mom explained that she had to follow her heart, the strong conflicting emotions that Caspar felt wouldn't go away. And still, he had to act and pretend that everything was okay, even though everything that had just actually happened was the very stuff he used to have nightmares about.

    At school, even surrounded by his best friends, he couldn't really hide the fact that there were problems at home and that he was in pain. His teacher noticed, asked what was wrong, and Caspar lied and said he was feeling sick. He spent the rest of the day just sitting in bathroom stall at school, trying to get control of his emotions.

    He couldn't fully understand how his mom could break up a marriage of so many years, she explained to him that she and his dad had been fighting and arguing, all the time, for years. She hadn't meant to, but she met and fell in love with an amazing new man. Even though Caspar agreed to give this new man a chance, he was worried about his father who had always depended on his mother, who was a team with her, a family, and now Caspar worried that without counselling his dad might fall into a depression and need therepy.

    Even though Caspar felt that if he liked his mom's new partner, after the divorce, that it would be a betrayal of his father, and he felt really guilty about it BUT this new dad was a really nice man, who truly loved and cared about his mom.

    He felt terrible and guilty and a lot of pain, but his Dad told him not to feel that way and to know, like he did, that there was enough room in his heart for two, or three, or more. And, after a few years had passed his father met the new love of his life, a new mom for Caspar ( not at all a stepmonster) and also a wonderful and amazing person, and a single mom. It was a new life for all!

    Now his mother and father have each been remarried to their new husbands and wives for nearly a decade, and Caspar has more siblings, nieces and nephews than he can count on all his fingers and toes, and he has learned so much more from his new sets of parents, all together, than he could have with just his originals, together like they were. His life has been filled - by this new larger family - with more love than he could have dreamed, and his parents are happier in their new lives than they have ever been.

    His parents' divorce has taught him that even bad and painful experiences have the potential to lead to good and positive ones. Relationships don't have to last forever - life is about the journey, not the destination.

                      Call me harsh but divorce are cowardice and self fish, The parents can choose to fight to maintain the family but this 50% choose to runaway

                      Divorce is betrayal

                        Not quite,if you don't love someone anymore and you tried everything to fix it there's nothing to do about it
                        Yeah there are people who divorce just because they hit a bump and that's not good
                        But most don't allow that to break a marriage, it's either abuse or not loving someone anymore that makes divorce a better option than staying together
                        Because the kid will only feel worse and grow up with more problems if their parents are forced to stay with each other when it's not working anymore

                      I wish that my dad was like that. He’s a cheating bitch and has introduced me to like 4 or 5 different girls. Also when I talk about my moms boyfriend (who’s actually nicer than my dad), he gets super pissed and jealous and starts talking about him right in front of me even though he’s never met him

                                      So here's MY story

                                      My parents also divorced. They always fight. There is one time my parents got into a fight. They were screaming and shouting. Me and my sisters go inside my room and played together and pretend like nothing happened. So the next year, i met my stepmother. She was so nice. Every day she would come at my dad's(biological) house and played with us. A couple months later, my (biogical) mother say "hey what about we go out and eat?" i was like yeah sure! So we sat at a long table. And then my (biogical) went to order our food. I stayed at the table and waited. A couple minutes later, a man came a said hi. I answered. He talked with us about some stuff. Long story short, the man was my mother's (biogical) old school boyfriend. So they are in love. Bla bla bla. One year later, I started to eat a small amount of food. I didn't know what's wrong. So the next year, my mom(biological) took me to the hospital. The doctors didn't know what's wrong too. So they asked me to go to another hospital. The sad story is, i was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer stage 4. Short story, i got home but two days later, i got a really bad stomach ache. My mom took me back to the hospital. My dad(biological) took care of me now. So in islam, we celebrate Aidilfitri. It's like Christmas but in Islamic. I asked to raya with my sisters. Short story, i cried every single day. I was really mad at my mom (biological). I really miss my sisters. Sometimes i cried randomly because i missed them. But I'm still glad. I'm still alive.

                                      If you don't know what lymphoma is, please go Google. I'm a Malaysian person i don't know much words. 🙏😭

Also I'm ashamed of myself for saying that cause now I have to be included in choices sometimes ;/
