I suppose that the reasoning for sticking by family is that family is supposed to be there for you no matter what--so when push comes to shove, you are not alone. You belong somewhere. But what if that is not the case? What is it that compels me to continue to fight to be a part of a family when I really am not wanted and really do not belong? Where the only thing that I have in common when them is DNA?
I have thought a lot about this and today I say "I am done." But can I really walk away? Can I get over my feelings of obligation and responsibility and be free? Can I really choose to focus on my "real" family--Gessner and Beauty? Would it make me a bad person?
