First and foremost, you must believe that you are worthy of dignity and respect, and that you ARE lovable. When you realize that, really realize that, you will begin to treat YOURSELF with the dignity, respect and love you deserve. The fact that your father wants to see you doesn't mean you have to see him. He's a manipulator, and he's using your vulnerabilities to get to you. Don't let that happen. Understand that he's not worthy of having you in his life, and then make decisions in your life that are in YOUR best interest. I know that's difficult when you aren't getting any support. I've been there. I learned that I had to give myself what others didn't and couldn't give me. I was also fortunate to be able to seek out therapy. I hope the same for you. Talk to your social worker to see what's available to you, if anything. And if there are any resources available, utilize them. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
