Who's day?

PostSecret: 'Dear Dad. Thank you for being an alcoholic. You've shown me what I never want to be… I wish I could tell you I love you… but you've hurt me too much.'

To the person who donated half my chromosomes: this year, for the first time, I do not feel guilty for not sending you a card on father's day. It's been nearly six months since you ruined Christmas with your drinking and abusive behaviour, and yesterday you proved you still can't see why inviting me round for a barbecue and a few beers is not going to show me how sorry you are for hurting me and letting me down, over and over again.

To Dad: why you? I miss you and I love you, all the time. The tears don't come as often anymore, but you're never far away from my thoughts. At least when you told me you never wanted children, the sentence ended "…but you changed my mind." I wish I could see you again.

Thank you PostSecret for telling me in your own way over the years that I'll be ok. I am now. It feels amazing

Related: you can cope.

I'm nearly two years off the pills now, and happier than I ever was on them. Go figure.

I often miss the little girl whose dreams had no barriers... who believed in a world where anything is possible with a heart that was full and unbroken

My secret

PostSecret: To Dads everywhere / Your daughters need you more than they know / Trust Me... / _I Know_

(My secret is that I didn't sleep all through Sunday because I was hungover.)
