That was one of the most heartfelt posts I've ever read on NT. I had horrible parents growing up so I can relate to some of your experience. I haven't spoken to or seen my father in over 10-15 years (maybe 20 years, I don't know I lost count). Ditto with my mother (except for my brother's wedding a year or two ago). She was incredibly abusive physically & mentally. What stands in the way of you reaching out to him & trying to see him regularly?
I have a 5 year old son. I love that little boy & my wife more than I can ever describe. He's taught me more about myself than I've taught him. He inspires me to be the best person I can be. I want to spend as much time as I possibly can. He's more than I could've ever wished for. So in a way, I'm getting to correct the mistakes my father made. I do miss the idea of him but not him specifically.
Yeah, I have a decent relationship with my father. However, it's sad that most people don't have good relationships w/ their, because of how their mother viewed their dads. Yes there are bad dads, but a good number of them actually make a effort, but are viewed bad because of the mother's influence.Originally Posted by jdiggs
