    This man helped bring me into this world but he would later shatter my world into tiny pieces. He done unimaginable things ... things you shouldn't do to a child, or anyone for that matter. I loved him though ... he was my father and to be honest with you i knew no different, i...

    I am glad I do not talk to my father,

    he is a terrible person. I would rather say he is dead than tell you what he has done.

    I've not spoken to my father

    for many years. The last time he tried to speak to me was a few years back. I was working in a supermarket at the time and he saw me in the chilled department, then tried to be all pal-like with me (as if we were happy families). I just blanked him as if I didn't know him and...

    I think I've cut contact with my dad.

    I haven't told him that yet and so I'm feeling uneasy. But he really doesn't call me or message me at all. He gave me little and made my mother struggle to raise me. She always allowed contact because she thought it was important I knew my father, but now she has asked me not to...

    He always blames things on everyone else.

    He isnt a Rolemodel whatsoever. He treats women terribly and he always finds a way to put me down. People think I'm cruel that i dont want a relationship with him. But if you went through what i went through, you'd understand why. I was beaten for putting water in the cat food...

    Dear Dad: I don't know you! You were gone most of my life, and I realized you knew where I was you just didn't decide to visit.  You blame my grandmother, but if you really wanted to be part of my life, you would've overcome any obstacles to get to me. ...

    I haven't spoken to my father in eight years or so. I have no wish to speak to him again in my life. My life, as ****** as it is right now, would only be worse if he were in it.

    It is always funny when your dad threatens to

    strangle you and then ship you off to your home country to get married to a forty year old *********. Little does that naive old man know that this worthless piece of s**t is going to get a law degree and land his *** in jail :))

    My father and I were never close. I never thought it was strange until I saw other fathers interacting with their children. He would just come home from work, eat, and watch TV. He wasn't abusive or cruel, just absent. Growing up, I started to hate him. I felt lost, as a young...
