I Hate My Dad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,767 People

    My dad is abusive. There's no way around it.

    He's usually just emotionally and mentally abusive, but occasionally it's physical. My grandma think he's "useless", and she told me yesterday that she's seriously considering telling him so. He doesn't work, and hasn't for most of my life. I can barely remember a time when he...

    Over the past few years my dads personality has

    taken a complete 180. He's so far the most self-centered, inconsiderate, and extremely annoying person I know. Recently I was honorably discharged from the marine corps and I come home to my dad a completely different man and my family a stressed out train wreck because of it...

    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 Hate My Father

    One of my earliest memories is of being in my mums arms, and her crying uncontrollably, we were locked inside our bathroom and my dad was shouting outside the door. He had a legally held hand gun and was drunk, and was telling my mum to come out so he could shoot...

    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 believe we should respect people out of

    My dad always made sure

    that his family was happy and healthy. But sad part is is that he's nothing but a big, fat bully. Does he care? Not really. As long he has hurt someone, emotionally or mentally, he's happy. He's also very narcissistic and egotistical. He values his ego and pride more than his...
