my dad wants to have a better relationship with me after all the abuse and yelling and **** like that but at first i didn't want anything to do with him. i know it sounds pretty tough but really how can you grow to trust someone after stuff like that happens? so i have really been thinking, and the abuse has simmered down like alot i mean its not even bad anymore, my dad doesn't really yell alot and he is patienter or more patient. my heart decided to forgive... i mean he is my dad i guess and if he wants to start fresh than lets do it. it was hard making that decision because you think about every little thing that has caused pain in your life. if Jesus forgave, than i can too. people aren't perfect everyone makes mistakes some more than others but everyone makes mistakes and people deserve a second chance. i honestly think that if i let my dad into my life, then i will be really truly happy. this for me is a big decision but i think it will be better for the both of us . i know that memories will will last but in my heart my dad is forgiven.
