Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Friday September 16, 2016 is Step Family Day. “Things have changed a lot in the past decades, where once marriage was a life-long institution & divorce practically unheard of, now more than half of all marriages end in divorce. This isn’t as bad a thing as it sounds, as many of those ‘lifelong marriages’ were held together in spite of internal abuse, general unhappiness, & worse due to societal pressures. Regardless of your opinion on divorce & marriage, something good has come from this new paradigm, & that’s the step family. This day recognizes all those who live in blended families. Being part of a step family can be really challenging, you’re coming into a place with people that weren’t part of your family before, & suddenly they’re uncles, sisters, brothers, even parents to you. How confusing must it be for people who yesterday weren’t related at all to suddenly be considered your siblings? That being said, growing up with a step family can be really rewarding, especially when everybody works together to overcome the challenges & create an amazing blended family. To make things even more difficult, if you’re part of a step family, it almost certainly means that you’ve recently had to deal with going through a divorce. This brings up all sorts of challenges, jealousy amongst siblings & birth parents, & the hostilities that doubtless led to the end of the previous marriage. These certainly aren’t part of everyone’s experience, & in fact they don’t have to be the experience that you have. Step families come together every day that are strong & act like an extended family rather than a divided one. This day is dedicated to appreciating those who have joined your family, & educating yourself on the challenges you face so you can overcome them together. Start the day off by telling your step family that you love them. Then spend the day with them working to build your relationship further." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year' . #fit #stepparent #step #parent #wp #fb #blog #ig #insta #tweet #twitter #buffer #tagsforlike #pop #follow #like #family #blended #lpt #linkinbio . @Instagram @sharpharma
