    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.

    Whenever I think of connecting with my father,

    I make sure to make myself see how much he doesn’t deserve it, because you know what? My life is already empty of any love and I should not be entering cold irresponsible people in it, but rather I should be eliminating them from my life, those who already exist in it. Many...

    My mom and dad got divorced right

    before I entered kindergarten, but lived together until I was in 5th grade. It was very unstable: lots of yelling, fighting, late nights driving looking for them, begging for him to come home. I remember crying most nights waiting for him to come home. I remember going to the...

    Bad Dad

    When I was younger my dad abused us physically and mentally. My mom had to call the cops to get him out of the house when I was 7. Untill 9-6-13 I still saw him, he yelled at me to the point I cried. He gave me the guilt trip, which was how he controlled us before, so it hit me...

    Even though I grew up with my grandma, he would come to visit in a monthly basis, which meant the world to me. He would take us out to play, ride bikes and camping. For any kid that's great and enough to forget other issues like getting spanked or grounded. He used to make me go...

    My dad abandoned me as a child.

    Years later, I found out I had a brother who wanted my dad and I to talk to each other. My dad refused to admit his mistakes or apologize, so I refused to associate with him. I figure this late in the game, there's really no reason.
