I Don't Talk to My Dad

A group for those who have problems talking with their father. 1,476 People

    When your parents are considerate

    and expect you to achieve good things in your life, that's a good enough reason to keep them in your life. When both or one loves to talk about you behind your back, doubts your abilities or treats you with disrespect, it's time to leave him/her/them behind. For this reason, I...

    I talked to my dad today about what Happened

    the other day with him not realising I was his daughter (I served him at my work and he didn't no who I was) he had the guts to say "it's not my fault I didn't realise it was you. You don't make any effort to come and see me so how should I know who you are?" At that moment I...

    I am one of the fathers you guys do not want to

    talk to. And here is my side of the story: I separated from my wife when my daughter was 8 years old. Until that time, I was very involved in my daughter's life. I did all the things that all dads do with their children, and perhaps even more. I took my daughter for skiing...

    My father wasn't around often,

    but even when he was, it was like he was a ghost. Most of the time he spent either on his computer or in the game room watching TV and drinking. I knew he could be an awful person, but I never really knew the full extent until I got older. He would get drunk and be...

    I love my dad so much

    I Don't Hate Him

    I don't hate him , but I can see crystal clear through his eyes, deep inside, there is only hate there for me, only envy and malice in his soul. I am 16, I haven't talk to him for about 6 months now and I can tell that I feel much better from then, although it's quite...

    Well sort of. I do if I had to,

    but I never initiate the conversation. I know it's bad, but I can't help it. I think silence is better than ending up in an argument. I just can't stand talking to him. It infuriates me whenever he starts saying something with or without a sense. And I don't think that will ever...

    Daddy

    He sexually abused me

    and made me a slave, passing me around to his other children who also abused me and their uncles from the time I was six till my mom left him for other reasons when I was ten. She took her children with her and I've never seen or spoken to him since.
