Need to know
Of course I had to ask my mom what the heck this lady was talking about and if it was even true because I had to know. I remember how she looked at me when I asked. It was one of those, “oh crap” looks. At that moment my heart sank and then I started to wonder if she was even my real mom. I’m not even joking. You have no idea of all the crazy thoughts that were stirring around in my head. Children are 110% dependent on their parents, we are raised to trust them to provide for us, protect us and keep us safe. Well, I felt completely let down. How can I trust anything you say to me now? How would I know if it’s the truth?
