I Dont Talk To My Dad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 571 People

    I really don't talk to me dad.

    He makes me feel down and I hear the stuff he says about me, how he always finds a way to compare me to my perfect step sister. I don't even try to talk to him so a can't pick out my speech flaws

    He left a little over ten years ago

    and it took him that long to realize what he missed out and he doesn't even know me. When he visits me now it's weird cause he is like a complete stranger to me now

    Conflicted, I don't want to talk to him but I am scared of losing my grandmother who sees her son as the perfect angel who never does anything wrong. I know in an instant she would chose him over me in a heart beat and thinking about that makes my heart hurt. I hate how my dad...

    Dad. The word that brings my anger from 0 to

    100 in seconds. A man that said he always loved me but only loved to put me down and make me feel low. Most dads love their little girl and treat them like princesses. Well not me i got the rough, cold hearted treatment. I would expect that treatment from a guy or a friend but...

    He Lives With Me, But I Don't Care

    I refuse to talk to him. I have no reason to ever forgive him for the things he has said and done to my entire family, not only put us through stress beyond belief, but all the pain my mom has gone through because of him. He is the worst human being I have ever met. A waste of...

    I've stopped talking to my dad

    when he began to yell at me for having my own opinions. I feel unappreciative whenever I decide to not talk to my dad because I know so many people who come from broken homes and live without fathers. I am blessed with a mom and a dad, but my dad and I do not get along. He likes...

    until I was about 6. Even when he got out he was never there, too busy hanging with his friends and girlfriends. Never bothered to take me places or do anything at all. Then when I turned 14 he started trying to be involved in my life but it was too late. I've developed 0...

    Why Would I when he put himself

    before his family thousands of times. I'm done with him and any other selfish person. You can go through life treating people like the dirt in the bottom of your shoe and expected to be treated like a king.

    Two Worlds

    I love my daddy to death. I am a daddy's girl. He loves me more than anything. I'm his only child. But we don't have a relationship. If that makes sense. It's awkward to be the only one in the room with my dad. We don't talk about anything. How do I get closer to him?

    The barren and the wondering soul loses his

    state of mind. He walks far away from any sign of human kind. He reaches for a leading role but grasps empty air. This pain inside is beyond compare Oh father where are you now Did you fall When I left did you drown In alcohol

    for five years leading up to his death at age 57. He was in a coma and I saw him and said my last words to him. Probably the most raw, emotional moment in my life. I don't know how aware a person can be in that state. But there was a tear in his eye and many more in mine. I like...

    I don't hate me dad, there is no hatred

    but sometimes distance is the best solution . I will continue to pray for him to get his life together . He doesn't understand his wrong towards people hisself and family. I will not stop having faith in him . I know he can change.
