    He's A Hypocrite, Was Violent And Still Is Verbally Abusive

    When i was very young my father used to be very loving, i remember kissing him goodbye on his cheek before he went to work. However, his anger issues started to surface when i got older- he would quarrel with my mother more and more frequently and eventually also beating her. I...

    Actually he's my step dad

    but he's been around since I was four. Today I decided the only good thing about this man is he took care of my mother after her divorce from my father. I can't stand who he is and how he acts. I don't get why my mother loves him. He makes thugs tense and is always tense. He...

    My father is disgusting.

    I am thankful that he's not abusive and does well at his job and pays for food and shelter and a nice life etc but he has absolutely no manners and for some reason he loves making others feel bad, especially me. He is disgusting because he always smells horrible (I don't think...

    A Bully Who Loves To Upset And Frighten Me

    Ever since, I was a child I was exposed to my father's uncouth behavior. He would grab each of my siblings and I - pin us down, and bite our bums. It may sound odd to make such a statement, but as a five year old child I was afraid of my father; I had his teeth marks on my rear...

    if this man died, most of my problems would be solved. I hate him more than i can explain. He has done nothing but hurt me over and over. I wish I could forget him. I can't wait till he does die, than he can't hurt me anymore.

    What Could Have Been

    My father has always been a raging, authoritarian, angry man. He was strict, harsh, and demanding. He didn't play, laugh, or smile. And he didn't know how to love his children. I was born a sensitive, timid child. So you can only imagine what effect a father like mine would have...

    I Hate My Father

    I haven't seen or spoken to him in FIVE YEARS! And he lives just across town. He is a drunk and a drug addict who never cared about me. I truly wouldn't care if the A*shole died

    I Just Need To Let It Out

    I don't usually tell anyone anything. I don't feel like I have anyone to talk to at all. I definitely won't talk to my parents because they don't seem to care enough, and that's the problem. My dad is a complete jerk and I don't know why my mom ever married him. He constantly...

    and loving that the house was finally quiet. My dad always sucks out my good energy the second he's in the same room as me. It's awful, he's just so disgusting and loud. Totally killed my mood. I love it when he's at work, I feel like the negative energy goes away with him
