I Need to Vent

My dad sent me a letter from prison. It's basically just an apology for all the horrible stuff he did to me and my mum.

I have mixed feelings about the letter. But what they are, I can't tell. There sadness, anger and everything inbetween swirling around in my head.

I've been pacing back and forth in my room for a little over an hour thinking about it. I can't forgive him, nor can I forget.

My head is just a mess. This good flow I've had going is just gone now

Just a piece of advice but you need to forgive him, if only in your heart for your own peace of mind!

@Snuffy1957 thank you :)

@Aigis :) you are very welcome and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Forgiveness comes easier for some than it does for others. That is human nature and perfectly normal. The fact that you are trying to forgive him is really good. If you decide to respond just write a short note. You could simply tell him I’m trying to forgive you but I do not wish to engage you. I wish you peace and happiness in your life. @Aigis

One letter can't erase years of abuse, that's for sure.

@KingofPizza2 ain't that the truth. Nor can a prison sentence. I don't know what he hopes to achieve

@Aigis I mean, if it's the beginning of a sustained, consistent and long-term effort on his part, then... maybe? But, that's quite the rarity.

@KingofPizza2 I don't know. I'm not even sure I should write back. He gets out in a few years. I'd sort of come to terms with the fact I'd never see him again

Have you talked to your Mother about this?

@Aigis If you ever engaged him you would need someone there with you that wasn’t intimidated by him.
Aigis · 22-25, F
@Pfuzylogic I never want to engage him. If I did, I'd do what you said
Pfuzylogic · M
@Aigis the options are totally yours.
