    Here Is My Story About My Dad...

    Saying my relationship with my dad used to be strained is the understatement of the year.  When I was little we were really close, but that was because he wasn't the primary parent.  My mom was the nurturer and he was the fun and the discipline when need be.  He...

    Dad

    My dad and I have always had trouble relating to each other because we are so different. He is a perfectionist and he thinks that everyone should be like him. I was far from perfect. We fought all the time. Just in the last few years we have started to get closer. I think he has...

    I try, I really do. But every time I look at

    him all I see his anger, the same anger that was in his eye when he was beating me. When I see fathers in movie or in the street hugging or telling their little girls how much they love them it makes me cry because I know it will never be me. I’m never going to be the little...

    Needs, Not Wants...

    Looking back at my childhood, I can see how my Dad was there when I truly needed him, but not always when I wanted him. I remember all the nights he spent sitting at work while my mother tucked me into bed. The special events he missed purely because he would rather sit on his...

    my dad's mom just died last week.

    .. I didn't know her...so it feels weird to call her my grandmother but my dad and I were never close either...he was just never the dad who thought of me as daddy's little girl even though that's all I ever wanted. I've never been the one to ask.. kind of awkward when it doesn't...

    My relationship with my father means everything

    to me. We haven't been as close as we always were lately though. He's been working more since he started his small business and it seems like the only time we can bond is when I'm helping him or I need something which makes me feel so bad :( I really hope to have a relationship...

    I've come to realise the damage is unrepairable. She is who she is now. A narcissist can't be changed. I only make her worse than she is being who I am.
