I was only 6 when my dad left us, I begged him not to go, I remember hugging him and screaming "Please don't go!" He ovbiously didn't care because if he did, he'd be here.
You can say that him leaving us, it left me emotionally scarred, i lost sleep crying every night wondering why he left? I didn't understand why he left. I believed that it was because he didn't love us anymore.
My sophomore year came along and my dad came back and I truly believed that he was staying for good... I was the only sibling who had good intentions about my dad, he left for the lsst time and I was angry and devastated. I finally realized that if he really did love us he wouldn't have left in the first place. I 've become a stronger person with my dad gone, I have my mom and she's my rock through it all.
Life without my dad now is good. I've become a better person without him in my life. I've become a stronger, I still get emotional and sad about him time from time but that's just me.
I'm 17 now and I still have no contact with my dad, I know where he is I rather not talk to him. He doesn't deserve to be in my life if he didn't care about me in the first place.
I'm a junior at a new school still trying to find out who I am. I do know that I'm strong and that I don't need to have 2 parents, I have my mom she's my rock and hero
