I’m sorry if my comments seemed like victim blaming, that was not at all my intention.
I have been in very very similar circumstances to Delphine. I know from personal experience how hard it is to have a father that treats you poorly and publicly doubts your paternity. I also know what it is like to not be acknowledged and supported while he supports and acknowledges another child (in my case my full blood sibling). It stays with you forever and so does the shame attached to everything you go through. Often it creeps back in - any issues you have while dating or arguments you have with a significant other/friend/relative - you think “Am I so unlovable? My own father didn’t want me, so I must be.” Any mental turmoil Delphine experiences is 100% due to her “father”.
I know everyone is different and has different experiences. I can’t judge her for this - I just hope she has help. This is a permanent scar. You don’t outgrow it, ever. Even if she wins, this is not something you escape without internal turmoil. I gave up my fight long ago, I hope Delphine stays strong.
I really felt a connection to her story and to what she’s been through. I was expressing my own POV due to my experiences, but I realize it may have veered into hurtful territory. I’m sorry again if it came off like victim blaming, it really was not my intention.
