    Today it's Mother's Day in France.

    I wanted this day to be a beautiful day for my mum, so I gave her gifts and smiled at her, made her laugh... And my father stayed on the computer. He didn't say a word, he didn't help her to clean the house, like every single day. He didn't do anything for her, he didn't care...

    Maybe I Should Just Wait For It To Become A Reality.

    I don't hate him, I don't think that I "on a personal level" hate anyone in the world, I don't see that anyone has given me a serious reason to hate them like they have done a real evil unethical thing that led me to HATE them, I am not sure how can I know if I hate someone or...

    He Doesn't Even Deserve The Title

    As some just might know, I haven't seen him since I was three. A few years ago, little Green wanted to know who Daddy was, and to say the least, was terribly disappointed, repeatedly. Apparently, "Dad" doesn't want anything to do with me, and just walked out when responsibility...

    My father has never supported

    who I was or what I have ever wanted to be, for example as a kid I had long hair because it was cool at the time. He forced me to cut it which brought me to tears and humiliation at school. And I've always had dreams of being and artist and a musician but both times he's said...

    And I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

    I don't know why he's so bitter, and blatantly cruel. He has threatened me, put hands on me, and projected his disgust and disdain against me more than a father with decent will to teach his son with "tough love" in every way. I have lied, and have went over his head in the past...

    My father used to be my idol

    when I was small, but know I hate him with a fiery passion. When I was 8 years old I found out that he sleeps with other women. I found this out because of some pictures I saw in his phone. In my religion, it's wrong for the husband to be unfaithful to his wife and vice versa...

    I get the impression from most of the people around me that I have to build a relationship with him, but I think I would be healthier without him around. He's good at one thing, making himself, and everyone around him miserable. He's not a sadist, but he doesn't appear to...
