    My dad is a very arrogant

    and abusive man. he has a lot of girlfriends. Hes 46 and his latest gf is 23. He takes them to very expensive trips but cant even buy my mum a present. We're still a complete but broken family. My mum loves him very much and most of the time she acts like nothing is going on. My...

    My dad has always been the same person:

    controlling, demanding and manipulative. Thank the heavens he doesn't live with my siblings and my mother because my life would be a living hell ! I hate it when I have to visit him and his wife- I still remember when he was abusive (verbally and physically) to my mum and...

    Now before anyone starts saying how I should be

    lucky that I have a father, hold up because there's a lot of valid reasons why I particularly hate him so much. When I was a little kid, my dad would physically abuse me and my brother and fight with mom day in and day out. And the thing is, my brother was expected not to cry...

    My sister was only 7 turning 8,

    this is what I said to my sister “Yea Chelsea you’re going to play dolly house too”. She did not seem to be happy about it. She then told me that it’s not what I thought it was. I didn’t understand what she meant by that. My dad came towards me and put duct tape on my...

    myself and content with the world, but of course, that doesn't last long. My Dad pounces on me and starts having a "talk" with me. I just got home from school, I want time to myself, I want to take a shower and relax. Anyway, he goes on asking if I like his girlfriend or...

    Where do I begin??? My father is a hard worker

    that hates his job. He does everything to ***** and rant about the world. He is a simple man that is a liberal. However, when the world does not go his way he freaks out in hate. He is a huge drinker/ pot head. It makes him sloppy and gross to be around. All he does most of the...

    I don't talk to him. I try to avoid him

    as much as possible, but that pretty damn hard to do when I live under the same roof as him. He's a narcissist who tries to live through his children and control everyone around him. He acts like a child himself. He likes to instigate arguments through meaningless ad hominem...

    The emotional abuse really needs to stop.

    I can't believe I actually thought his cyclical behavior was normal. He'd explode, treat me like a princess for two weeks, then ignore me, then the smallest thing will set him off. Then it changed a little, after his several attempts at trying to get me to forgive him, he'll...

    Why Can't My Father Be a Normal Loving Dad?

    I have never hated anyone before, but I can honestly say that I hate my father. Why? Because for my whole life I have put up with his incessant perfectionism, obsession with small detail, short temper, criticism, verbal abuse, and emotional abuse. He is a very opinionated and...

    I mean I don't hate him.

    ... But I don't love him either. My dad works hard for us. He's the only income maker in the family. He has to support four people and himself. That makes five. He tries to give us the things we want. But he doesn't at the same time. Does that make sense? My parents, I don't...

    I love him so much, but I hate him

    so much too. If that makes sense, it's a love hate relationship. What it comes down to is, he has extremely bad anger issues, he's miserable with his job, he hates being poor, and has stressed. therefor, he screams at all of us (siblings and mom) And it hurts because every...

    why I have a low self esteem. He once called me stupid, *****, and ugly. The agony part is, every night as I'm about laid my head, his voice runs through my head like- a broken track record- reminding me of every insult he has ever said to me. Sometimes I consider suicide just...
