Aaron Bennett

Beat me twice a week on average for 15 years. When I finally beat his ass when I was 16 he started using baseball bats and other weapons.

My mother is a weak, frightened woman who didn't do shit to stop it. Fucker convinced her and my brother I deserved the beatings.

Kept writing abusive emails and letters to me up until his death and then tried to make a weak attempt to apologize on his death bed. I didn't even respond or attend his funeral. My mom and brother still hate me for that.

Hope he is burning in hell.

Jose Campbell

he was the backbone in our family, had some drug problems and we probably shoulda been taken away long ago but he still wanted the best for us. he didn't want us working on no construction sites with no life.

all in all, coulda been worse. he's not around today though :( you'd be surprised how much even losing a dog can change your attitude.

Oliver Davis

Jayden Perry

He was an absolute stud probably until his 30's. Then alcohol fucked him up badly, he was drunk for decades, when he died, he was only 60yo young. I wish he wouldn't be dead so I can take care of him, and help him overcome his troubles. I'm happy that I raised myself to be a better man.

Not a bad person but pretty sure he's on a spectrum of delusion/insanity/autism. Awkward and cringy to be around sometimes. Barely speak to him anymore. I fear every day I'm more like him than I realize and I try hard not to be. It seems inevitable sometimes.

Gabriel Price

Went to Vietnam at 19 and did 3 tours with the 101st. Came home, had kids. Became a drunk, drug addict biker who would fuck up anyone who looked at him wrong. Total fucking badass type. Got his shit together in the mid 80s when I was born and been sober ever since. Overall good Dad. Older folks around my home town remember the crazy version of him so he's pretty respected I think. They know he's killed way more people than them and are always really kind. I was always a little weirded out by it.

Isaac Barnes

He's a jackass i shouldn't care so much about. He's hit me my mom and my brother several times growing up. Chased us out of the house in drunken fits. Masterbated in front of us. Insisted on driving us home drunk. Laughs when you get hurt. Yells at you if you consistently don't listen to him. You're good for nothing if you're gay,like blacks, or like anything that's not southern christian to his standards. He's even told i should have dropped out even though i graduated. And basically told me i'd never amount to anything and the same for my brother. Not to mention he's selfish as hell and left a whole other batch of step children.That are old now but he never raised.

lol why the fuck would he? Apparently he kept being a piece of shit to him even after he moved out.
He didn't even apologize until he was on his fucking deathbed, doesn't sound like it should have been accepted.

Arbitrarily forgiving people(even family) for no reason other than "hurr durr time has passed" is retarded as hell.

Asher Sanders

Ignorant, stubborn, rude, manipulative, toxic, inconsiderate, thickle, unable to apologise or admit he's wrong. I pray to any lucky stars I may have that I never grow up to be like him. I compare myself to him and if I'm not similar then I know I'm doing well.

My birthfather was never there for me. He kept up with child support, and when I was 28 we finally met up in person. Man do I look a lot like him, but he's a coward. I keep up with him every couple of months just to say hello and it's important to me that we stay in touch, especially because he's dealing with cancer right now. He's blood, but he's not family, if that makes sense.

Thomas Ward

My dad is a great provider and a great man but not a great father. He thinks I'm a drug addict loser so we don't get along. We used to get along as semi distant family but now that he tries to tell me how to live without really knowing shit about me, things come to a head often. I wish things were better, and so does he. Options for change are very limited atm, so I'm struggling with trying to not hold any grudges

Damn. I wish you anons had a dad like mine. Most intelligent, wise, and determined guy I will ever know. Taught me to hunt, fish, and generally take care of myself in and out of society.

He didn't just mold me into a man. He made me into one who can teach others as he did and I think that's the most important part.

Josiah Perry
Josiah Perry

I left the house very young, while he was finding himself. Just took a bag and left into the world, very angry at him.
The street was my home and dawn under clear sky was my father.
I know he has me on his conscience and cries sometimes, cuz only now he sees that I'm the same as him.
We didn't talk or write, but in front of other people we always talked all the best about eachother. I think that, even though we never understood eachother, I loved him and he loved me only way we knew how..

He had a personality a lot like mine, so we could understand each other's thought process pretty well. His approach to things was always pragmatic, so he was the person I'd go to for practical advice. In my adult life, we got very close.

I respect him a lot for putting up with my batshit mother and staying in my life after the divorce. Seeing stories like the ones in this thread, and the many people I know IRL who aren't on great terms with their dads, made me cherish our relationship. I'm really glad I had a chance to tell him as much before he died.

I miss him every day.

I don't plan to have any kids. If I had taken my dad's path in life, I'd have already have kids around 13 and 10 years old. The thought scares the fuck out of me. Seeing what my own parents had to go through made me heed my dad's advice to not knock a girl up while I was still young and stupid.

I'm not half the man he was, anyway.

Not my problem. It's inevitable anyway. When people are educated enough to choose whether to procreate, they often choose not to.

When you add on the fact that our social system has been optimized to screw dads over just for having a family... I just don't see an upside. I have nephews, and I've never been more sure that parenting isn't for me.

My dad died 3 weeks ago. He was great and the time too short. He was thriving to build a future for his kids and support us the best he could. We was the best father I could have wished for and am happy that I told him that and thanked for all he did. This was our best and most intense year this year, he died while helping me in my garden, while I was at work. I miss him.

Connor Rogers

Do you not know the difference between things like reconciliation and forgiveness? Forgiveness is seen as something of a problem in a lot of conflict resolution seeing as it's often employed to just get emotions off your plate rather than confronting the main issue. You can choose not to forgive someone but not be continually angry. You don't have to buy into the christian kool-aid that is "forgiveness solves all problems", in some cases it just hides trauma. I had a shitty boss years ago that treated me and the other employees like garbage. She never apologized, and eventually left the place. Why would I forgive her, what emotional utility would it serve? Your emotional worldview is simplistic.

My step dad was mentally ill, abusive to my mother and I, and died early (57). My biological father and I have a great relationship. He is a good guy, intelligent, analytical, fair, and funny. Hids only real drawbacks are he never learned how to parent, so he is kinda awkward with the grand kids.

Carter Torres
Carter Torres

he's a good person who had a fucked up childhood and became an alcoholic, got divorced, lost his labour jobs etc
he was always a very good artist who did serious works but never really provided for us.
He got me into a lot of dangerous situations when he was drunk and basically I herited his fucked up childhood. Atleast I hate alcohol now.
He doesn't seem really interested in what I do either, I think he's kinda living in his own world.

Liam Clark

He's always stuck around after my mom divorced him which I will always respect him for, sadly I don't have a deep bond with him, but neither do I with my mother or step father even though they were the ones who got custody. Bias child custody laws really hurt kids sometimes

My step dad was an alcoholic and always used me as a punching bag and was super abusive towards me
But worked hard to give my mom and half sis (half blooded sis ) n me money to make sure we ate and had a roof over our heads

The reason he was abusive cause his father use to beat the shit out of him and he got drunk to ease his childhood scars

I forgot my step father for what he did to me.
