Realized yesterday that I have all the traits of an orphan.

Realized yesterday that I have all the traits of an orphan. I always felt so bad for orphans. I never thought I was basically experiencing the same effects. Reeling from the epiphany. All the same addictive tendencies and pathological disturbances and behavioral problems.

My father was either emotionally absent because of drugs and his own trauma or physically absent, like out of the house. My mother was never there. Actually. She lived many states away and I only saw her 1-2 times a year, and she was always either drunk or pissed off. I've had difficulty relating to people and have struggled with addiction since I was 20. I'm sober now, but I just couldn't get my life together until last year with the substances.
