Post from Odyssey- Meaningful ideas……
The article I wrote last week (“Growing Up Without A Family”) briefly touched on the absence of my biological father. I had planned on just glossing over my family history until I realized that this topic deserved a little more attention. I can’t minimize the effect that meeting my biological father for the first time had on me by sweeping that information into a vague article about weak familial relationships.
I thought about not writing this article. I could continue to avoid facing the reality and avoid hurting any feelings by remaining silent. The problem with that is, I know I’m not the only one who has had to go through an experience like this. This is something I struggle with, and I think it would be best to face it. I think it’d be best to share my experience and my thoughts on the situation.
I’ll say out loud the mean thoughts that we force ourselves to keep silent.
I’ll be the bad guy– the bad child.
