my dad divorced my mom when i was in college. never saw it coming, thought our family was solid. found out all about his infidelities after, he kept saying he’d come
see me. it’s been 14 years now. in that time i met and married my husband. my mom
died three months after the wedding, my dad didn’t call or reach out. he stopped speaking to his elderly parents, brother, sister and all friends, just gone, didn’t
see his own mom before she died in 2020.
now i have a son and i tell him i love him an excessive amount each day. i wonder how i could ever get to a point where i could leave him, and still, after all the anger and therapy and forgiveness and healing… ijust
wonder what my dad would think of my life now.
