i can relate to this. my dad was a drunk and abusive to my whole family. sorry to say, but i don't see him as a dad. i don't see him as a person with value because all he ever thought about was himself. i don't have respect for him nor do i have the want to talk to him. i don't even call him dad i call him by his first name. if it wasn't because of my family, i would never talk to him again.
edit - i see, the post was deleted. there's nothing to be ashamed of.
thanks for your input...i just felt like my post is just whiney.
im sorry to hear you have a...well sorry to say deadbeat dad too :/ . maybe i dont need to talk to them...i mean he has not contacted me it's his family...hes made no effort. i dont need this extra stress on me right now. maybe when i am more emotionally stable.
do you feel like the situation with your dad has contributed to your sa probs?
