    Dear Dad, I Hate You

    Dear Dad, I hate you. I've hated you for nearly as long as I can remember. Let me count the ways. I hate you for every time you attacked me vocally. You called me a loser, a nerd, a little *******, a rotten kid, a punk *** kid, a hypocrite, a drug using criminal, a Satan...

    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...

    A Letter To My Dad

     I have been dealing with a lot of anger lately.  You have been in my mind constantly…I had reoccurring thoughts about killing you.  I have so many questions that I will never get the answers to.  You made my life very difficult.  You caused a lot of pain-not only for...

    When you ask people what they're afraid of,

    they usually say spiders, or heights. Not me. What I'm most afraid of is growing up to be like my dad. The very thought of it shakes my very core with dread. I never want to be like him at all. For my kids

    I hate my dad. I truly truly do.

    I've experienced a heavy amount of emotional and physical abuse. The reason why I'm still alive today is because I believe that I am a strong person at heart. He started hitting me when I was in the sixth grade. I did something wrong? Slap across the face or a punch in the gut...

    The alcohol, the ignorance of caring,

    ignorance of ******* everything and the drunkness. He makes me angry. Fills me up with rage. Every small thing he does, puts me on edge. Even his snoring makes me anxious, not able to sleep. Because it is a sound that is so much related to him as a person, makes me not be able...

    for me to say, since the Title is "I hate my dad", but, I'm not actually sure if I do or not. I have a lot, a lot of negative feelings toward him, and I am very scared of him, but does that fear automatically go to hate? The worst part is, my dad is, compared to the fathers I...
