BullshitFreeZone: Need Help 🙁 I don’t know to do…

skullsoflove:

So lately I’ve been obsessing about finding my biological mom. For those of you that don’t know I was adopted as a baby and it was a closed adoption. I’ve never been able to know anything about any part of my biological family, except for knowing that one my moms co-workers adopted my younger…

Looking for biological parents is never an easy decision to make.  I think the first thing that you have to do is realize that looking for your biological parents in no way means that you find your parents lacking in anything.

I’ve always been worried that looking for my biological mother would hurt my own mother.  I decided that for me that was not something that I needed to do.  However, I know that there a lot of adoptees that want to find their biological parents.

If it something you really want to do I would talk to your mom and dad about it.  First though you might want to write out what you are going to say to them.  Have like practice conversations with them.  Maybe you can get one of your friends to pretend to be your parents so that you can practice talking to them about wanting to find out more information about your biological parents.  That way you will fill more comfortable talking with your parents.  Good luck, with whatever decision that you make.

Returning To Therapy

So therapy right?  Yeah, I get it, it’s hard to open up to someone you don’t know and tell them your whole life’s story, especially the bad parts.  The good thing about going to a school therapist is that they … Continue reading
