I Don't Speak to My Father

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 Left me and my mother

    when I was 4, then he abbandoned me when I was 8, it caused me a lot of problems because I hadn't a guide like the other guys did, but after 18 years (I'm 26 now) I can say That's better for me. So, thanks for nothing, "Father".
