One Side But Not The Other....

for the last 18 years of my life there has been "family secrets" hidden from me... most of which are pretty horrible and i am not only glad that they were kept from me but thrilled that they werent there to consume my adulescence... but what i dont understand is... why are there such horrible stories on one side of my family but the other is compleatly normal...(and i have done my research on this...it is legit) this is not a one side against the other sorta thing... this is accually true.... one side of my family is.... excusse me...but F-ed...and the other is aboslutly normal and has high standings..... what i dont understand mostly... is how could my mother, hide 10 yrs of pills and alchohol abuse -along with much more- from my father...who is an extreamly intellegent man....as i was growing up. i didnt know my mother...i had few memorys of her and they werent tha best ones. but... i had to understand that she had issues within herself, and my father had to do what was best for these children that were involved...

but what is it that made one side get mixed in with the other.....these are two totally different people and to know them both now as an adult, i just can't imagine them being together or at one point even happy.... because whatever is was...i dont think it was real on one side but not the other.
