    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 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...

    Ever since my younger brothers were born,

    my dad had treated me badly. I could still remember the beatings he gave me when I was younger. The earliest abuse I had was when I was 3 and had the belting of my life. He would slap me, yell at me and sometimes walk away from me in public places and then I would have to run...

    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...
