So, wanted to chat to someone online... as I'm not so good at talking about
my problems, or emotions (unless I'm drunk)
But that doesn't seem to be an option.
Anyhoo, If anyone could offer advice, it would be muchly appreciated.
As I mentioned, when I get drunk, I often get really upset!
It seems to be the same old issues that keep arising, all of which I've sought help for, from psychologists and counsellers and my wonderful friends. However, I can't seem to shift these burdens.
I've tried to take these matters into my own hands, finding ways to deal with these issues. One problem that constantly arises an issue for me, is the lack of my father in my life. 4 years ago we stopped talking, I can't even remember why, but it has really started to upset and bother me. I've tried calling him, hoping that talking to him or visiting him would ease the pain. I ring, but he doesn't answer.
How do you move on from a situation like this, where you're trying to deal or move on, but can't.
What else could I do? Counselling doesn't seem to help, and my psychologist recommended I call him and talk to him - but I can't as he won't answer.
My dad has done some bad things to me in his life, not sexual abuse or anything, but emotionally scarred me all the same, and although I feel I've dealt with that, this absence of him in my life is now the issue.
Maybe he's not worth my time, but then how do I accept that and MOVE ON?
