I Don't Speak to My Father

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 108 People

    Wow...

    ...I didn't think it'd actually hurt to say that out loud, especially after everything. Nevertheless, I don't speak to my father, and, since I value my physical and mental well-being, I probably won't.

    Nope, Sure Don't!

    My dad disgusts me, look what he set me up for!  He is a liar.  He has hurt me time after ******* time.  On my birthday, I was so proud of him for getting me that beautiful bracelet.  I showed it off like no tomorrow.  Then, I discovered it was...

    Abandoned

    I wanted to be a "Daddy's girl". Still do. But of course, my father abandoned me when I was little. All I have is pain from where he tore my heart. I can't talk to him. I have nothing to say anymore... only tears. He'd never understand. He doesn't take responsibility for all the...

    He Made Me Choose

    My parents went through a really messy divorce. I was ten. He basically convinced me that my mom was a ***** from hell and I didn't speak to her for three years. She and I reconnected on my 13th birthday and began having regular visitation after that. My father had...

    Should I Meet My Real Father?

    At a young age my parent told me I was a donor baby so I am my mothers child but not my father(if you get what I mean). My mother and father got divorces after my sister was born and I have not seen him in about 4 to 5 year. When I am 18 I am going to be asked if I want to meet...

    I rarely speak to my dad.

    My parents divorced when I was seven, due to the fact that my dad was hitting my mom. I witnessed soo many things, and he always would try to make it seem like it was my moms fault. He moved 30 minutes away from me. I would see him occasionally and stay the night. But as he...

    I Don't

    And I never will speak to my father. He is in a mental institution and I never will go and see him ever. He was a terrible man and I don't have anything to say to my father what so ever. I hate him, and he hates me and I have no problem with that.

    He Called Me Worthless.

    I was never a 'Daddy's girl'. I'm not sure that would even be possible with my father. He isn't very affectionate. He isn't very caring. He has anger issues too. He won't admit that though. Ever since my parents divorced 5 years ago things have been rough between him and me...
