There are a few things that I have to say to you…
I hope that you will man-up… and read this entire letter.
"Dad." That word feels like poison rolling off of my tongue. I don’t think there are any words in the human language to describe my feelings towards you. I need you to know that you are single handedly responsible for my inability to leave an unhealthy relationship. Healthy people will walk… better yet RUN away from emotional abuse… but because I took it from you (my own father) for so many long years… I have learned to take abuse from people when I know I deserve so much better. You have permanently scarred me on the inside.
I spent years and years blaming my mother for my sadness, anger, depression, etc. I have never been so wrong about anything or anyone in my life. IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG! You were so emotionally abusive to me… I’m afraid that it will affect me in my adult life. I can’t say I have ever loved anyone who I, at the same time, hated with such a passion, in my entire life… past, present, and (most likely) future.
I can’t even comprehend how you can get up every day, and look at yourself in the mirror, and not want to cry… cry and scream for all the pain you have caused your only child… your own flesh and blood. How many people’s lives can you shatter… how many people can you screw over in your lifetime before it begins to affect you?
What amazes me, Jim, is that you blame EVERYONE else for the things you have done. Gosh… I wonder where I got that from. You tell me I’m just like my mother… if only I could be so lucky. I hate (with every part of my being) that I picked up ANY of your traits or behaviors. Sadly, I know I have, but I work every day at stopping each and every one of them. You told your own child that you hate her because she is just like her mother… OWN UP JIM... You hate her because she’s JUST LIKE YOU!
You should be ashamed of yourself for blaming that fact on me.
