But that’s ok, he wasn’t a good person anyway. I’m happier without him. Some of my earliest memories are of him on a binge getting violent and yelling. He would hit my mom. Wasn’t healthy.
Haven’t seen him in 33 years. Last I heard he had gotten busted for a few DUI’s and did some time.
Half sister by him died a few months back.
Pish on the bad dads!
My father was abusive alcoholic.
My childhood was hell.
We share that then. Sounds like my dad.
I have a great father,
But I also understand that I am extremely lucky.
Sorry your father wasn’t good to you or your mother,
You both deserved better.
Sounds like you’ve made the right decision severing ties.
Working very much,
thinking that money is what
a kid and a family need.
Drinking all day long.
Furious and angry at everything.
Slapping me in the face,
never calling me by name,
but with bad words.
I was praying to god to kill my father.
I know it’s cruel, but it’s honest.
You are, I hope his Father’s Day is nice.
He raised a good daughter
You’re a sweetheart though. You’d probably make a good dad.
It would be easy, just don’t do what my dad did, do the opposite. Lol
Maybe I will adopt some day, but I’m paranoid I will genetically pass down my illness to my own biological child.
It’s good though, because my fiancée feels the exact same way. She’s disgusted by the thought of giving birth, but is open to adopt someday.
I’m sorry. My dad used to be an abuser so I totally understand. But he went through rehab and quit drinking. Then over the years he became a better person. I’m trying to only think of him as he is now, but it’s hard.
Just as a thought, from a person who’s been through the adoption process,
A lot of those babies come from mothers/fathers with mental illness as well.
I mean, mine did.
I understand if your fiancé isn’t interested in childbirth.
But don’t be so afraid of having a baby if you eventually want to.
Yes, I think my father will have a nice day.
He’s far away, but I’ll call today and I sent him a craft beer home brewing kit that’s really nice.
He is recently retired so he’s got time to mess with things now.
Should be fun.
I don’t know who my real father is. Never met him, don’t know his name, etc.
Just think about it guys.
Besides the abuse,
the claim that “i was working hard for you,
and I couldn’t be with you” is a stupid statement.
He never spent quality time with me.
We never did something together,
he taught me nothing.
I’m glad he’s recovering. That can change a lot. Here’s hoping the relationship is in a good place
Yeah. My dad was very mean to me when I was a kid. I mean I explained on the say Anything thread all the good things he did but he also did things that hurt me deeply. But I can see now that my dad loves people so much. He really does. I mean he still gets mad over stupid stuff…. Idk.
My late father gets a thumbs down from me too. I don’t want to go into the details though.
Sounds like mom had a bit of an adventure.
No stories? Nothing? How was that on you growing up?
My father was a great man, worked hard to build up a farm and business along with raising four children, one disabled(not me), he’s the reason I won’t be homeless and have a place to live along with food on the table to this day. He had a terrible death which he did not deserve, it was a travesty. Cancer let him go once but came back for him. He also saved my life from beyond the grave by joining the IRA fora time at some point early in his life
