Can’t face going into whole thing now, but I talked my Dad on phone yesterday and something he said made me feel sorry for him. Today I rang and now I am contemplating going over there tomorrow first thing, even though I’ve said to myself I’ll go later in the week. I know it’s so soon after losing Mum but I feel angry with him and myself.
Really sorry Eve1. Please try to be compassionate to yourself.
It really is up to you if you want your Dad in your life or not. Whatever you decide you will have to find coping strategies for dealing with the decision and it’s consequences while emphasising the benefits.
You don’t have to decide now while everything is still quite raw from your mother’s death. just try to take it easy and try not to have high expectations of yourself or your father.
