Wrote a letter to my dad on the weekend.
Posted 05 October 2009 - 02:20 PM
I am very close to my mom and tell her everything. His birthday was a few days ago and he asked me how I was. I told him the truth how I was depressed and he he kind of shut me down. I left the conversation in tears. I wrote him the letter and haven't told my mom or sister about it. I am terrified that my family will get up set with me. And I may drive him in to a depression or drive him to drink again.
Any feedback would be great from you guys. Because I am on my own here and I don't want to tell my mom because she will go right to my dad and tell him and I know he wont take the letter seriously.

I must add my voice to those congratulating you.
What you did took courage and I believe that in time, you'll see it as a big healing step you took.
I assume he's never responded to you, but that's OK. I understand your anxiety and wanting him to confront you about it, but try to see it this way. You told him off and now he's afraid to bring it up.
You are now in charge in this relationship. You're not a bully like he was, so you're not going to take advantage of that like he did. But it's true nonetheless.
