I Want To Say This To My Dad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,303 People

    Thank you for always being the constant in my

    life. For listening to my stupid teenage drama for years and actually acting interested. For always supplying me with what I needed and really wanted (spoiling me as mom likes to call it) . For being nice to my friends you didn't like. And for threatening all my boyfriends. You...

    You stole from me. I will never forgive you.

    They say forgiveness is for oneself but there's no repairing the repercussions for me. There's just every day choosing not to harm you, every day choosing not to feed the memories of you, every day accepting who I am because of you, no matter how disturbing that is to me. I...

    I don't hate you. Really,

    I don't have any feelings for you as a person, whether they're good or bad. I feel bad about what happened with you and my mom, but at the same time, you haven't done your part as a dad. You expect me to fly over to your place every year just because it says in the divorce...

    You need to get yourself together

    and realize that when I get mad at you when you're drinking it's because all you did was drink when I was little. It makes me so mad when you drink I just hate it!!! You don't know when to stop! One drink is okay. Two...fine. But two 6 packs is not okay!!! You turn into someone...

    I miss you very much pop,

    I'd like to ask your advice but I know that's impossible. I'm an adult now, I know you are saying from heaven, that's my baby boy, he'll make the right choice. He's got a good head on his shoulders but, I don't know. I really still wish you were here with me. I at times feel so...

    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 want me?

    What did I do? How come you don't even know I exist? You don't even try to reach out to me. Was I not good enough to be your daughter?

    more common than the I love my dad group. I guess I figured they all couldn't be pieces of **** but if it makes you feel better to know, that you're not alone.

    the difficult thing and maintain the moral high road and be as persistent at them as you needed to be. You let us down, but I am understanding now what you are capable of as a person, and I love you anyway.
