WHO AM I?
My mother told me when I was 22 years old and expecting my first child that my father was not my biological father. It was a blow to my heart and the beginning of a major identity crisis. To make things worse she divorced my daddy and married my biological father about one year later. I have never accepted my biological father as anything more than just my mother's current husband. Now at age 30 and 2 children later, I find myself thriving for answers and falling into a deep depression. My mother will not discuss the situation and feels she is the victim in this whole situation because she forced herself to hide this for so many years. As she explains it "it was to protect me. It was the best thing to do at the time." So basically her need to relieve this life of lies and stress has now caused an open wound in me that I feel will never heal. What do I do? Where do I begin? I am so angry at my mother, dad, and biological father.
