    I Cannot Forgive My Abusive Father.

    This is my expression of a great frustration, and I'm essentially going to rant. I hope this is not a problem. My parents have been divorced for, apparently, nine years. I have been under the impression that he'd found God and was moving on. Yet, I cannot let go. I found out...

    He's An A**

    Yeah, my father did a number on me and my siblings growing up, but I let that go and moved on a long time ago. I went years without having a relationship with him at all, then, out of nowhere about 11 years ago he contacted me and I foolishly allowed him back into my life. Mostly...

    I hate my dad so much.

    He's just ugh!! I can't stand being with him. He always smells like beer and ****. It's nasty. And he has muscles the size of basketballs. He should really stop going to the gym so the blows to the face and ribs don't hurt as much.
