On occasion I write about something other than Turkiye and today is one of those times. In many ways my blog is a journal allowing me to clear my head and cleanse my soul (if you believe in all that loopy stuff). Writing down the words that I am feeling takes away some of the pain and hardship that surrounds the events and, well, I just feel better for it.
Many of you will recall that I am adopted. I am not emotionally scarred from being adopted nor have I ever wished my life to be anything other than what I have been gifted. I love my adopted family. I may not always love their decisions or their choices but I will stand by my family because that is what they are – my family.
My Dad was the master of all things good and my mum, who may not have always been the best mother, was the best that she could be. I also have my brother who, I will admit, has not always been my best friend or my biggest supporter nor I his but we have forged a relationship that (I think) is strong and everlasting. I have lost both my Dad and my Mum now but I still have my brother who has a wonderful and extended family that I am blessed to call my own.
While I do not want to go into the details of this post (for fear of no doubt long retribution and probable legal action by the party involved) I will say that today I am closing the book on one part of my life. This part of my life was ugly and full of anger, jealousy and hatred. This person was a devious creation and she and her awful family have caused nothing but angst and sadness for me and my brother but today, finally, I can say hele şükür! (Good riddance!). I hope to never cross their path again in this lifetime.
Now I plan to move forward and build an even stronger relationship with my remaining family because we are strong and we don’t take no shit from nobody!
