    When I tried to kill myself,

    I left him a note. It read "Dad, just die". I still have yet to have him follow through on that either.

    Like Is Different Than Love

    I couldn't bring myself to join, "I Hate My Dad" because hate and love are opposites, plain and simple. And I do LOVE my dad, but I don't like him. To me, you love your family almost unconditionally, only abuse can break that bond. But like is completely different. I think you...

    Dear Father

    I don't hate you but damn I really wish I could. I'd stop having expectations that always lead to disappointment and pain. I never understood how you could resent your child for something they had no control over. It was your choice to have me. It was your choice to raise me, it...

    I Do Not Like My Father

    It feels weird saying that, but it's just the truth. He acts like he's the best father in the world, and tries to make me feel guilty anytime I disagree. The thing is that he had horrible parents, so he believes that he is amazing just because he's not as cruel with me as his...
