I Realized This Some Time Ago...

I used to get so frustrated and upset with my father. I didn't understand why he didn't change when he was obviously so ****** up. One time after he'd done it again I was walking around outside trying to cool-down, trying to make myself feel better. I was distraught, wondering why he hadn't changed in all the years that I'd known him when I could tell that he always felt guilty afterwards. And I realized that it was just how he is. I couldn't and cannot do anything to change him or his actions. All I can do is try to be strong, and change the way I approach the situation. I just have to will my way through the hardship, and soon enough, I'll be able to go on my own way. I only have to keep living with him for a year. I think I can handle that.
