When you told that aren't who you think you are it hurts. When you live your life knowing that you have a whole other life that you will never get to live it makes you feel trapped so trapped that you think your whole life is fake that your not real that nothing you have measured up to shouldn't have happened. Being adopted can make you feel like you are missing a piece of you that you will never find. you can feel alone or even invisible. Lies that are suppose to protect you or help you actually does its opposite and hurts you.
