    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 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...

    I Would Have Never Known

    I found out , like most people do , that my dad was not perfect.  I didn't find out by word of mouth , I found out through fist and torment.  My parents divorced when I was 10 .  My sister and I lived with my dad, mom had nowhere to go .  My mom left us and...
