  • The person that I would most like to sit down and talk with isn't anyone famous, he never discovered anything, never healed anyone, never won a court case, never discovered any uncharted territory.....The person I would most like to have some time with is my dad.

    My dad and I never got along, he was mentally, physically and emotionally abusive to me growing up. Once grown I avoided any contact with him. I did visit him but at the same time I couldn't wait to leave, I would call him but couldn't wait to hang up the phone. I unfortunately suffered many many years of emotional turmoil well into my 30's. I finally sought help for what I had been through at the hands of the man who was supposed to care, nurture and protect me. In doing this, I discovered that he had his own demons that were never properly dealt with and eventually those demons were taken out on me. Why? Basically, I was the only one to stand up to my dad-everyone else feared him & were too afraid to upset him so basically he got his way on everything in our family. I took many beatings because everyone was too afraid to get involved.

    Once my dad saw I was the ONLY person to stand up to him and that he could no longer physically, mentally or emotionally abuse me--I think with this he developed a great respect for me & I became his confidant & remarkably his close friend. My dad and I were becoming friends and I was finally having the kind of relationship I had always wanted to have with him. We had mutual respect for each other and along the way, after knowing more about my dad's past and medical history, I was able to 110% forgive my dad for everything-and I meant this with every fiber of my being. Visits & phone conversations became enjoyable...

    Then my dad got sick-terminal cancer. He asked for me constantly. I was there every bit that I could be, I spent many sleepless nights in the hospital with him. My dad died within a month of being diagnosed. Just as we were finally, starting to build our relationship-he was gone. I have, over the years, felt robbed of my father/daughter relationship. Just as we were getting to a good point in our relationship he was gone, I wanted more time, I still do. So, the person, I would most like to sit down and spend time with & have a conversation with is none other than my dad. I did and still do miss my dad & I love my dad very much.
