You’ve told her the truth. You’ve confirmed what she already suspected, if not already knew. You’ve allowed the light of day to permeate a burdensome secret that you all have carried for years. You’ve lanced an emotional and psychological boil. You’ve initiated healing between you and your mother, and taken a quantum leap in your own journey to freedom.

(I applaud you.)
