    You may not know me very well,

    but Im still your daughter. You let me stay out in the cold in a dangerous area. Everyone was blowing smoke in my face and drinking and they were druggies and filthy and my aunt's bf wanted to do stuff to me. And I had to drop out of school and they stole almost everything...

    Dad. In a way I want to say thank you.

    I spent so many years hating you and blaming you. The physical abuse didn't help me.. I flinch any time anyone raises their arms or start kicking.. I guess in a way it helped me hate abuse and hate seeing people being attacked. I know I will step up if I see anyone being...

    For some reason I could never hate you

    for everything that has ever happen and I have yet to understand why. You ruined most of my childhood and you really don't understand how you make me feel and even if you knew how I felt you probably wouldn't care. One day I'll be able to truly forgive you when your ready to...

    I came across this experience.

    Then I read some of people's stories. So I'm adding my story just to even things out a little. The other experiences are all complaints. That's so sad and I feel bad for everyone. What I want to say to my dad is you're the greatest dad in the world! You always put your...

    You were a great son,

    brother, cousin and uncle but you were a horrible father, a near stranger that never put the time and effort to get to know your kids. You just wanted to boss and manipulate and put fear in us and limit us. Well in less than a year I am going to become a doctor in the profession...

    You are not a good man,

    not even a man in my mind. You are a coward, insecure, close minded. I don't need you in my life and now not my sons life. You clearly do not accept me or my husband and child. I'm done with you. I can't believe you still think that my star tattoos on my neck mean something gay...

    Dad, it's your birthday.

    Everything was going pretty well. One minute you're all fun and joking around. Then now you're being a jerk for no reason. Can you just quit with your cranky attitude? You killed everyone's mood. This is why I hate weekends. Because I get to see you the whole day. On weekdays I...
