Happy Birthday, Dad

I figured I'd say it here since I can't say it to him. We haven't talked to each other since the Disney World trip. There has been no communication at all since our back and forth email discussion ended February 25th. For those who don't remember, my father broke up with me back in February.

Well, today is his birthday and I can't call him, but I did send cards. It's just weird. I thought I would miss him more than I do, but it actually feels good. I'm not being judged on a regular basis and I get no guilt trips that he claims aren't guilt trips. There is so much more, but I fear I would bore you all with the messy details.

I guess all I really wanted to do was send a birthday wish out to the universe. Maybe one day my father will realize the importance of family and that relationships take work on both sides.

Sorry and I hope he comes to his senses soon.

I don't have much of a relationship with either of my parents. It's sad and I grieve the lack of a relationship with a parental figure, but I don't really miss THEM as people. In any relationship you have to consider if it's worth the effort and sometimes it isn't. It just sucks when the offending party is a parent.

Shady, I'm so sorry. I'm speechless and don't understand how a parent could do this....then there is the grandbaby. I too hope he comes to his senses soon.
