I need a tissue, I have daddy issues.....

A letter to my father......

Father,

I'm not really sure how to start this letter. I guess I'll just jump right in. It's been almost 10 years since I last had to write one of these letters and to be honest the fact that I've had to write to you about the same thing more than once is in fact a huge statement in and of itself.

I can not be your daughter anymore. I have no desire to be stepped on by any man in my life let alone my own father. From this point on I would prefer if you stayed out of my life. The flippant way you have of dealing with me and the way you take me for granted are crap and I refuse to be treated this way by you any longer.

You are my father, and I am your ONLY CHILD. I am the mother of your ONLY GRANDCHILDREN. How you could ever go over a month without contacting us is beyond me. I lived an hour and 30 minutes away and you couldn't be bothered to pick up a phone and wish me and the kids a happy Thanksgiving. In the last 4 weeks I have moved and bought a new house and no word from you, no offer to help, no request for a forwarding address.

I asked you if you wanted to participate in a gift for the kids for Christmas, a group gift so that no one set of grands got credit or had to carry the burden. You accepted and when it came time to pay up, you disappeared. I called you and gave you a chance to back out, I asked if you still wanted to be in on it and if not then we could figure something else out, you assured me that you were still in it, that you would get me the money soon. You called me TODAY on Christmas day to tell me that now you can't be in on it.....TODAY.

So here's where I say goodbye.

Don't call me any more. Don't bother my husband or my children. Don't ask your family about me. Leave me alone.

Thank you for your time,
Your Daughter

  3. I am just a call away if you need to chat. Or if you need to run away you can always hide at Sitt and Stay. :)
