I Hate My Dad

i dont know what he wants , he keeps on mentally torture me and my mom..i had even given all my pocket money to celebrate my parents anniversary bought him expensive gifts, done everything that me and my bro can do but he still fights with us, shouts on my mom, drink heavily..i m fed up of his behavious...;(
My dad was abusive (both mentally and physically). It didn't stop until the day I decided to not put up with the behaviors. I wasn't rude to him, but I stopped talking to him. If he came in the room, I left. If he talked to me, I pretended I couldn't hear him. Eventually he learned that if he wanted to be in my life - he had to treat me respectfully. If not - I was out and he would miss out on everything I had to offer. Still took 10 years after that for him to every admit he did anything wrong.. progress, I guess. I've learned from him that you should always be nice to people (because that's the person I want to be), but to do things on your terms. I only see him if that's what /I/ want... I don't do things for him. I forgave him for myself, because I was tired of holding on to the anger and it destroying me. Oftentimes we think forgiveness is for the other person.. it's not.
