Please don't feel like you are going to be let down in every relationship. Take it one day at a time. Try to learn to let yourself be vulnerable. open up. Not all people are like your dad. I didn't know mine either. And for a long time felt like a part of me was missing. But you develope into who you are thoughout the years. You become your own individual regardless. So try to just be you, and take life as it comes.
You don't know the circumstances around your birth and early years. There could be many reasons that your dad said what he did. And I don't think it was meant to hurt you. It was just the situation at that time. And maybe in the future you will want to contact your dad, and who knows, you might develope a good relationship. You never know what the future holds.
I hope that this helps you some. Try not to let it get you down. You are you. An indivdual human being. You will develope into a wonderful person. We learn from our mistakes, and hard times builds character within us. So even the bad things turn out good. We grow from life.
