Returning to the Past – 45th Part
A few days and weeks past by and I had to travel to Brazil for a surgery; something on my face or lips. I do not remember exactly what it was, but it was necessary.
I stayed at a friend’s house. I had the surgery and after about two days I went back to her house.
I received calls from some people to see how I was, etc. And among those calls, I get a call from a wife of a family member, asking me for forgiveness.
She was in tears, crying … saying that she had resentment against me because she thought I had rejected my children.
Upon receiving that call, perplexed … I pondered.
People, who did not know what really had happened, understood the situation of the children as if I did not want them. This rumor was going around in a few places.
My mother was surprised when I told her.
I paid attention and listen to the wife who was with me, telling me to ignore this kind of comments.
It hurt a lot, to be seen as someone like that.
I knew it was not true, but it was not easy to hear that many see you in a way that is not true.
After the entire procedure, I went back to New York just to get my bags, because we were transferred to Atlanta.
