Truth hurts

Post by Kaylakakes97 » Thu Dec 27, 2018 1:20 pm

And the truth comes out.
16 days after my 21st birthday, my first birthday in 8 years with my dad. 1 day before Christmas.
My first one with my dad in 10 years.
Living across the country which seems like the whole world from your father isn’t easy
And the truth comes out.
The truth about why mommy and daddy weren’t mommy and daddy anymore.
Is the truth really real ? I couldn’t imagine it to be so. It hard to take in. Yet, not enough to be In denial.
Not sure why.
But the truth comes out. In such an overwhelming time, nonetheless.
And it doesn’t hurt. But it stings.
I don’t know, I mean its kinda unfair. I’m pissed off, in a way. Yet relieved I suppose?
But the truth is meant to hurt. Right ?
That’s why it stays hidden.
For so long.
I know I was young then, so the lie made sense. I’m sure the lie was at least somewhat of a partial truth…
To the real truth that was hidden.
Yet it comes out, doesn’t it ?
Some way…. Some how
But shhhhh……..
It’s still a secret.
-Kay.
