Yes, you take care of you. If he tries again don't set your heart on it. He needs to do this and even then he may not be able to maintain so knowing his problems don't hand over your heart without knowing the risk you take. He of course deserves support for trying but also he cannot be counted on to make you happy. Only you can do that.
I know you will be ok. Kitt
Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.That is what we are, snowflakes................ Kitt
I'm a bit too scared too say what I should, maybe I should just end this post now but I won't. I will NEVER defend what your father has done it is (large amounts of bad words) but his disease is a disease. He didn't choose to hurt you the way he has. (again I am not, in any way, condoning his behaviour) he is and forever will be afflicted by this disease. It is not and never will be your fault sweetie. It's not you, it's him. Take it from an addict. Try not to hate his failures...at least he tries..but as aptly put, don't buy it... xxxxx
I'm so glad you are putting yourself first on this one..you deserve it!!! Show your sister how to live like the strong, wonderful and proud person you are. Bless you and stay strong, beacuse you deserve it
