    Still Hurts After All These Years...

    I have just turned 30. My parents divorced when I was around 9 years old. My Dad has a fantastic, respected and very highly paid job but it means he spends a lot of time away from home (hence the reason for the divorce in the first place). Initially he wanted custody of us as he...

    I Love Him Though

    I have only seen my father twice in the last 4 years, well 5 years as of April, 2009.  I don't talk to him, my mother, my brother, my sister, or many of my family.  Ironically the cause of this break up came from the very foundation of morals that my parents taught me...

    He was in my life the first four years,

    but after that it went downhill. I found out about his alcohol addiction and the fact he cheated on my mother. I believed him until I was in school, when I learned he lied like a politician. I learned he had done nothing but abuse me since the day I was born. It only got worse...

    I am an only child to a strong willed

    and beautiful mother who has endured many hardships throughout her life. Almost from Day 1, my mom has played both parental roles, and with a big smile on her face, if I may add. My parents were married for 17 years, but he was cheating for 15 years of it. My father is a very...

    Breaking The Cycle.

    It hasn't happened yet, but it's coming. My father worked abroad his whole life, and my mother raised us. He was present when we were very young, but worked all the time and I have literally no memories of him from the age of 1-15. When I was 16 we moved to where he worked, two...

    But He'll Always Be

    We had it all. Everyday was wonderful, and my childhood was filled with happiness and love and I got most of the things I wanted-- and I was grateful too. Up until the drugs sucked the brains out of him, and that's when we started to lose him. I was just about 9 when things took...

    It's Not Like I Haven't Tried To Have One, But.....

    He's an *******. It's always been this way since I was a kid, he's never really been around, I would see him once or twice a year, if I was lucky. Most of my life when it involved him, was me trying to have the father figure and parental figure that I'd always wanted. But...

    I don't miss my father,

    but I miss a father in general. Sometimes I need advice my mother can't give me and more than one family member to trust. Instead of being able to tell a sad story, I'd just like to ask someone, which coloured tie matches a blue/purple shirt. Stuff like that... (Maybe someone...
