Last week I found out that my father isn’t my real father and I haven’t spoken to my mother. I can barely even sleep to how shocked I am. The man didn’t know he wasn’t my biological father either and he’s equally in distress. I don’t know how she could be so deceptive. I’m 26, going on 27 and she waited all this time to come clean. She says my real father has lived in England for years and he has an idea that I’m his child but they both agreed that I was better not knowing… at least not till I was older. I don’t know what to do. This is the most uncomfortable situation I’ve ever been in. I love my mother so much but she broke my heart.
Take as much time as you need to process this. It’s a lot to handle and I can only imagine the hurt. You and the father you’ve always known do not have to part ways. After all, blood doesn’t make you family. Eventually, you will have to forgive your mother for your own inner peace.
