    I love you and I'm sorry I didn't understand

    and didnt spend enough time with you. I think about you and wish I could hug you every day. Seven years has been very hard. Mom won't ever love again and I know you wouldn't either if the roles were reversed. I wish you were here for me now, and I wish I had been old enough and...

    Ba, I'm sorry. Sorry

    for everything. Ever since you got full custody of me at the age of 12, I've been giving you such a hard time. I was close to you before all that. I was "daddy's little girl" I hugged you, laughed with you, and even cried for you but when you abandoned me for two years and...

    I know that you did a huge effort

    for our family and now you want to catch up on all the time you forgot to have for yourself, but I really wish you would stop to think about us for a while, and not about what we need financially but about how we need a father who is actually there and not away training or...

    My father is/was a mixed bag. Far from perfect, he beat both my brother and I, and he taught us to fight back physically when people hurt or teased us. His discipline was wildly inconsistent, sometimes hugs and understanding when a beating wouldn't have been unexpected...

    You've done things for us your family

    but in doing so, you've passed on the experience of seeing me grow up to be a young lady who seems so much like you from what she knows about you. That young lady holds nothing but longing for what she didn't have when she was young: time long enough to discover each other's...

    **** you and everything you did to me.

    I'm glad you rot in jail for years, I'm glad you killed yourself out of your own insanity, and I'm definitely glad your burning in hell for all you've done. You ruined my life in every possible way. Raping me for years controlling me like a puppet threatening my life if I didn't...

    Why??...... If I could find the strength one

    day I would ask him why? Why was I not good enough for you to love, protect, hold, shelter? Why, what was it about me that made you hate me so much, to hit, hurt, and take my innocence from me? Aren't daughter's supposed to be Daddy's little girls? Did I really displease you...

    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...

    Dad, years ago when someone told me

    that my actions or thoughts resembled yours I took it as an insult. Now I take it as a compliment. Finally I couls see that under a serious mask lies a huge sensitivity and a golden heart.
