Abandonment is a terrible thing. Sounds like the man was more sperm donor than dad, but that's not on you; that's on HIM. His treatment of you is not a reflection of who you are; it's a reflection of who HE is. And this is HIS loss, not yours. The fact that you have a stepdad in the picture, one who loves you, is something (and someone) to cherish. Your stepdad is the REAL father. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Always believe in yourself:
by: maurice

It was the hardest thing for me to live with especially after I found out who my Father was for a time: When I told a counsellor He told me I had been in breavement living without a father while not realizing it: My mother never told me his name: It was a long lost Uncle who returned home after forty one years who told me: I was 30 years of age when I found out: It was some consolation for me. Lea 1 Always believe in yourself NOW: I am certain if you speak with a counsellor you will be given the best of advice in total confidentiality: Also read Darlene's Comment slowly over and over and let her loving words to you sink in as they are real and profound from her woman's heart to you: She gives empowering comments to each visitor personalizing it to help each one in their own right to move on, to heal in their own time, to choose what is the best way forward for themselves: No one can live your life Lea 1 I must be in charge of my own destiny and happiness: As on grows from child to adolecent to adulthood one's life becomes clearer: We all need to make real sense of the real me person so that it is my life I am living,and not that of another's knowing and understanding: Your Mother may be too embarrassed to tell you, your situtaion Lea 1. She is unfair to you: I can empatise with you Lea 1. The not knowing part was a killer of my inner self all those years: Darlene has so wonderfully helped you make a real sense of your own situation. You will not be going too far astray if you follow her loving words of advice and encouragement: Don't give up on yourself: I'm Special and I am going to LOVE ME: Now begin to live your life to the full in what you have decided to do: I will: I can: I must: because I am WORTH it: Lea 1 I, Darlene, and all her visitors who read your story want what is the best for you NOW. Learn from the past, live for the present and hope for the furture: Hi Lea 1 one sure way to let go is to surround yourself with loving caring trusting people, a close friend or two, a partner, and with like-minded people who work at having a healthy mind in a healthy body: It will work wonders for you: Let Go and Let God or a superior power be your loving protection> Think positive, act positive, be positive in all you do and say about the wonderful and beautiful ME in the mirror Lea 1. Oh yes, build up a good mirror image of yourself, build up your self-esteem: Ask yourself the question in front of the Mirror, will the real me stand up??? my answer, I will, I WILL, Be gentle and kind to yourself and your body: Era go on, there's no one looking, give your self a big hug and cuddle, you'll feel all the better for it: Speak with a counsellor and really get out and about and off your Bottom and act on Darlene's comment:

dead beat dads
by: Cindy

I too have a father who has never cared for me,and at the age of 42 I still feel empty inside. I know its not my fault but he does not realize how much it hurts. I met him when I was 30.That was 13 years ago--his family did not want me in his life--he came around a couple times a year,handed me a few hundred dollars--and i didnt see him for another 6 months or a year.I even moved 500 miles away from home to be near him--with my husband and 3 kids.I now moved back to my home state--I hadnt seen him for almost 5 years--then one day he calls & asks if he can visit. Of course I say yes--------now its been another 5 months--and no calls and i dont care. I now know I can never have a relationship with him because all he cares about is himself.
