Your dad is out of control
by: Anonymous

Samantha, your dad has problems and he really needs help! But you need help, too. Have you guys tried counselling? BTW, your dad is wrong...you are not a failure; you are a success. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, respect and care. Hang in there!

Lean on God!
by: Anonymous

I am amazed by you! Your strength is such an inspiration to me. Whenever I have problems, sometimes I forget that God is there, waiting for me to lean on Him, but He will always be there for you if you let Him lead your life (John 3)! He will never hurt you like your physical father did. He could even help you forgive your dad, even though that might seem impossible!
