14 Revelations That Proved More Harsh Than Anticipated

When we think about the countless events that take place in our lives, it is remarkable how each experience holds its own unique revelations and secrets.

As we navigate the twists and turns of our personal narratives, we are constantly confronted with unexpected surprises and hidden truths, forcing us to delve deeper into the intricacies of our own existence.

Understanding the meaning of some events in our lives can take forever. Even if it seems weird or scary, when you do it, it’s like a eureka moment. There are always surprises in life and no matter how long it takes, there is always something to learn.

One night when I was a child, I heard my name called in a squeaky voice. My mother was asleep so I assumed it was her. This continued for several weeks after that. After a while, I was removing my bedclothes when I noticed something under one of them.

There was a “yak-back” In the nineties there was a device that allowed you to record five seconds of a conversation and play it back at the touch of a button. The last time I caught my mother screaming my name at her. I hit the button by mistake when I got to bed. 

My godfather gave me $20 as a Christmas present when I was ten years old. The money was gone before dinner was over. My parents accused me of being irresponsible with money. Years later we found out that my cousin’s fiancé at the time was a kleptomaniac. It turns out that she stole the money.

Every holiday for three years after my daughter was born, I received a signed card from her. But the handwriting didn’t belong to her father’s family, and it didn’t match anyone I knew. No one has been able to determine its source. I eventually found out that my daughter’s father’s wife was mad at me and hated the fact that she didn’t value her child. She sent me the cards as proof of her interest. 

A Valentine’s Day card from Ray was left on my desk when I was six years old. I didn’t think much of it because I didn’t know any Rays. My folks were thrilled when I brought it home and showed them. However, they did not allow me to see the card again and kept it in a lock box.

I learned the disturbing reality about this Raymond who had been stalking my mother for years. He pretended to be my uncle, entered the classroom, and left a Valentine on my desk. By doing this, he let my mother know “Look, I can get to your child.” Now that I think about it, it scares me. 

In the seventh grade, I used to get these horrible little white lumps in my mouth every now and then that smelled like rotting food combined with incredibly bad breath. I didn’t know what they were, but once they stopped I forgot about them until someone brought up the term “tonsil stones”.

As it happened, I hacked right into it. The smell was just awful, ugh. I assumed dads only came home on weekends. My father arrived on Friday and left on Sunday. When I was 14, it came out that my dad had been having an affair with my mother for 25 years while he was married to someone else. To give the impression that they were married, the mother changed her name.

Since he is my half-brother from her first husband, my brother also has a different last name. It also turned out that my mom’s first adopted child was my older cousin, who we spent a lot of time with. When I was a kid we sometimes had white bread, butter, and sugar sandwiches for dinner. We were pretty impoverished, so even though I thought it was great, I didn’t recognize it until I was an adult.

When I was six, everyone in my class got school pictures, but I didn’t. I thought it was unfair that my teacher gave everyone pictures but me. In the end, my parents were unable to pay for school photos. 

The first time I heard a knock on the door at night, I was a small child. It went on and on for hours until I nodded off. This usually occurred in the summer and lasted for weeks.

I kept it to myself. Over the years the pounding became less frequent and I just stopped caring. Eventually, it disappeared completely.

A few years later, at the age of 12, I began to struggle with anxiety. I had treatment for it but it made no difference. After being sent for a thorough examination, I was diagnosed with schizophrenia. 

My sister was four or five and I was maybe six or seven when we went to the resort for the weekend. Our rooms were next to each other.

When my sister and I got up in the morning, there was nothing to eat in the room.

We changed and I took my sister to a small cafe in the resort rather than wake my parents. I signed our breakfast order, which included the room number, for the two of us.

I always thought it was funny that I was so smart. Decades later, in therapy, I finally discussed how my parents didn’t really take care of me and my sister, and how I handled it. 

From the age of five or six, I had those moments where I was losing my sight.

When I told my parents I was blind, they always told me to lie down and take a nap. I had no idea what it was because it came up randomly and occasionally. Moreover, it would possibly

happen at school and my sister would accuse me of “faking” something. When I told my doctors about it as a teenager, they told me they were unable to diagnose the condition I was describing.

Fifteen years later, I learned from a Google search that this is called an “aura” and usually occurs before migraines or headaches.

I was taught to read by my older sister who played me our Disney reading tapes and guided me through the words in the books. I found out years later that she used the tapes to muffle the noise of our parents arguing downstairs. I find it heartbreaking that she was deprived of her childhood. 

There was a girl I really liked in high school. One day she stopped talking to me and it stung that she avoided me for a whole year.

I found out later that a few others called her impersonating me and were pretty nasty to her. I never learned exactly what was said, but it was clear from the cold shoulder that I was more than just a friend at that point. Even when the truth was revealed, the relationship was never the same.

We lived in a two-story building with an interior balcony that seemed unstable. My roommate and I shared this building.

After moving in, we discovered a crack in the ceiling on the ground floor, which is located directly under the balcony and extends about 50 centimeters toward the living room. This crack grew bigger and bigger over the year to the point where we had to start removing heavier items from the top floor. A year later, the crack was huge, spanning the entire width of the room and looking extremely menacing.

Turns out my roommate was playing tricks on me, gradually drawing a bigger crack each week and finally telling me about it years later.
