True identity found
This testimony is adapted from the JSH-Online.com Sentinel podcast series “News of Healing.”
When I was very young, my parents told me that I was adopted, and this ended up being the lens through which I viewed myself. I always felt that I was unworthy because somebody had given me up for adoption—I wasn’t good enough to keep. Questions such as “Who am I?” and “What is my identity?” plagued me. This sort of identity crisis continued after I got into my adulthood and was married with a child, and it just seemed that all kinds of things were breaking down around me.
I was working as a marketing manager at a company, and one day I had an appointment with the creative director of the advertising agency that worked on our account. I’d had a really bad day up to that point. I had broken down and cried, pulled myself together, and then gone to this meeting.
She asked me, “How are you?” and instead of just saying the polite niceties, I said, “Do you want the truth?” And she said, “Oh, yeah, you bet I want the truth.” So then I started to tell her that I was having a bad day and about all these things that had happened. Well, we had to work, so she said, “Why don’t we make an appointment for lunch tomorrow, and get together and talk?”
