I've been defeated

When you've been doing something one way for so long, and then realize you've been wrong this whole time, you are usually in denile.

IE: I've been writing "as opposed to" like this: "as a posed to"

HONESTLY all of high school I did that. NO one corrected me. I genuinely thought, up until tonight, thought it was the correct way to write this.

I'm heartbroken. Maybe that's not the right word. Stunned? Shocked?

Either way, it's a weird feeling.

It's like being told your mother is alive when all your life you thought she was dead.

That serious.

or is it more like... being told your whole life your mother is alive and then finding out shes dead? that seems more heartbreaking. finding out your mother is alive might be cause for celebration.
