I Want To Say This To My Dad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,587 People

    Dad. I miss you terribly.

    When we made the decision to let you die I felt like it was murder. I know in my head it wasn't, but it was a horrible burden to have to take on and convince mom and brother it was the best decision. I just couldn't let you suffer for one more day, Dad. I know you were surprised...

    Even though we had our issues in the past our

    relationship has grown into a neutral stance. I can see you putting in the effort to be a better person and has given me the hope even the cruelest people can have a change of heart. But you can still be an ******* at many times. Thank you for giving me shelter, food, a home...

    Dear Daddy

    Dear Daddy, What I'm about to say is what I've been going through. All the things I've seen and thought since the day that I lost you. It was late the other night, when I got that call. The Officer said you were gone. and my world began to fall. I fell to the bed and...

    Dad, if I can still call you this,

    I loved the way you made me feel as a child when my eyes weren't big enough to see your layers. I measured your love by the things that you bought me, the parks that you took me, and the frequent trips to bakeries after school. And to me that was love, and it still is; but when...

    Why did you leave me like that.

    ., knowing we weren't on good terms? Did you have to go that time? Was "HE" calling you? The worst thing about that was i couldn't follow you there just yet. I'm sorry dad... I was angry at you for having an affair .. I guess you didn't love mom anymore.. You got tired raising...

    Today, I realised that you failed me

    as a father. You made me feel hated, unwanted and second best to my mum and other siblings. This doesn't mean that, as an adult, I can't forgive you. It doesn't mean that I need to go begging for approval, that I give people nothing but pain by simply existing. The way you...

    but I just wanna let it out. "I know I will never be good enough for you. I know I'm not what you expected me to be, but I am my own person and I am done with bending myself backward to fit your ideal. You used to be my hero, but now you're just the guy that apparently share my...

    I didn't deserve your anger

    or your cruelty. Now you want me to be there for you and make your life less lonely. I had forgiven you but then the abuse started all over again. I'm staying away for now!! We shall see what tomorrow brings.

    Sometimes I really want to call you

    and tell you how damaged I am. How it still hurts when you say that you didn't want to have a girl, especially someone like me. I know you think I am stupid, weak, unworthy and don't really see me as a daughter. After all, you only remember me when you want to show something to...

    Why didn't you love me?

    What was wrong with me that you hated me so? Pity he has passed now so I'll never really know will I!? Although I'd never have gotten an honest answer out of him any way.

    Thanks for proving to me

    that not only can a person live without a father, but learn how to block out what people say. it made me realize that you bullying me and abusing me have me scars and scars that prove I'm tough enough to handle anything.
