I understand the conflicted emotions you feel about your dad; that's perfectly natural because of the dynamic between a father and his daughter. Your father is a troubled man. He gave himself permission to hurt and harm his little girl when he couldn't take what was going on in his life. That's on HIM, Gracie, not you. What he did to you was wrong and harmful. You will not be betraying him by seeking out help and talking about your feelings. In fact, that is the best way to possibly "mend" the relationship you have with him. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Love tinged with doubt/fear is not real love
by: maurice

Gracie, your love for yourself is not complete until you get Counselling to make a sense of the love/doubt you have for your father. Your father needs counselling too to be true to himself his family and you. A true father would not take his unknowing frustration out on his children. You are still effected by what he did to you simply because you don't understand why he did what he did. Darlene has given you real words of love and encouragement what you should do. Please heed her words, they will set you free after you get counselling: Always believe in yourself, Build up your own self worth, Think positive thoughts and believe in yourself: unravel your questions with a therapist. You'll be fine and maybe your Father will value and rspect you more for your wanting to love him completely. Darlene know best, so she knows a daughter/father relationship. You can strengthen it by building up your own self esteem now as a young adult thinking person. I am sure you will let darlene and her vistior know when you have a clearer picture of your relationship with your Father. I am sure you have a true friend who will walk with you, hold your hand when you decide and say, Yes, Darlene's words of encouragement are right for me, I can: I will: I must act on them because I am WORTH it. Off your bottom NOW, TODAY and get going Gracie. It is not for my good I am saying that to you but YOURS.
