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.

  5. I know exactly how you feel, this all happened to me about a year or two ago. When your parents divorce it can be hard, but you soon learn that it was all for the better ❤️

  6. My parents don’t want a divorce they still always act so cute with each other and they been together for 30 years and are around 50yrs old yeah they fight but then usually get over it because it would just be about politics. They did have their problems and are not the perfect couple but I know they will never get a divorce because they always work out their problems and I’m so happy for that

  7. This happens to me, but mom or dad didn’t re married. My mom told me if you want me and your dad to be happy or to be hurting for the rest of our live. And now I see them even happier

  8. My parents divorced. My mum found a new guy.

    My dad stopped drinking and smoking and doing that stuff years ago.

    Not long ago I saw wine on my dads table and freaked out. I was too scared to say anything. I hoped that my dad didn’t drink. I also saw him replying to a fb comment asking:
    “Hey (my dads name) when are we going to go for a drink again?”
    All I saw was AGAIN. My dad had a lot of replies for that comment that I can’t remember because I was too scared…
    That night I cried…

    I hope he isn’t drinking.

  9. Yeah this happened BUT my mom never started dating again and my dad dated 3 people now
