    I Forgive Him But He'll Never Know

    I went through a lot with my birth father, and while it wasn't as bad as other people have had it, it was bad enough for me to stop talking to him. He put myself and my mother through so much, and I hated him with every ounce of my being for the longest time. But now, I forgive...

    I couldnt ever live with him again, and things will never be the same. Still he is my dad, and has done things for me.

    Whoever You Are......

    I hated that I never knew you. I hated that I was always teased about it. I hated that my family was ****** up and broken. I hated that you knew perfectly well who I was and where I lived but never bothered to come see me. I hated you. But now I don't. Even if I may never know...

    I Wanna Say Me Too.

    But I can't do that right now.  I long for the day where I can.  This man has caused me so much grief and issues.  I haven't been to a therapist yet, but I imagine they'd run off after one meeting with me.  I am so ****** up because of him...

    After Many Years...

    After maybe 5 years I've decided to forgive my Dad from cheating in that race we had in France. He cheated, and I should've won. He started running on the 'steady' instead of 'go'. I didn't notice he'd started until he passed me, so had to charge after him and he only just...
