His parents always said he was “an accident” and they kicked him out at 18. But after years of silence, they reached out to him to apologize at a reunion dinner. He revealed his parents secret and the father wasn’t pleased!
A Tragic Upbringing
Being an unwanted child was an unfortunate reality for the Original Poster (OP).
Born from an unplanned pregnancy, his parents chose not to abort as it was against their religion.
He Raised Himself
As a result, OP essentially raised himself until he was kicked out at the age of eighteen.
Finding Peace and Acceptance
Despite the pain of rejection, he has found a sense of acceptance and peace.
His Parents Reached Out
About six months ago, his parents reached out, offering their apologies for the way they treated him.
He Gave Them a Chance
Unsure about reopening the lines of communication, OP cautiously decided to give them a chance.
OP Was in for a Surprise
Things seemed genuine until his parents extended an invitation to meet them person. Arriving at the restaurant, expecting a quiet dinner and heartfelt conversation, OP was in for a surprise.
A Shocking Realisation
The whole place had been rented out for their father’s fraternity’s twenty-five-year reunion.
Pretending They Had a Happy Family
Upon greeting his son at the door, the father insisted on pretending they had a happy family in front of his old friends.
Trying to blend into the background, OP conversed with the children of his father’s friends.
Revealing His Parent’s Dark Truth
They discussed their parents, and when asked about their eighteenth birthday gifts, OP wasn’t going to hide the facts and told them that he was kicked out after turning 18.
He Continued His Story
The awkward silence was broken by a concerned parent, exclaiming how awful the situation sounded. OP then shared that he had moved in with his aunt while attending college.
His Embarrassed Father Hits Out
After the dinner, His father bombarded him with angry messages, accusing him of “embarrassing” him. The truth had reached his father’s friends, who now showed coldness towards him.
He Was Frustrated
His father expressed frustration, believing that OP could have simply lied to save face and avoid jeopardizing his relationships. OP muted his father’s messages and went to sleep for the night.
A Hint of Doubt?
While initially feeling confident in his actions, doubts have begun to creep in. He is concerned about whether his parents will want to maintain contact after he unintentionally disrupted his father’s connections with university friends.
