I’m about two days behind (bare with me here guys)
So my relationship with my biological father is really non-existent. It consists of Facebook likes, posts and comments. That is literally all. I met him for what I remember as the first time maybe when I was around 7 or 8 years old? I always chased him and wanted to spend time with him but it was always something with him. Eventually I gave up. Wrote him a not so nice letter and just let it go. I don’t think he’s ever forgiven me for that letter but he can go suck a bum’s left toe.
My “dad” he raised me since I was 9 months old. I didn’t know he wasn’t really my dad until I met my biological father. I love him like no other although sometimes I wish things had gone differently during my childhood. Shit got crazy when my mother and him split up and it affected my siblings and I all in very different ways. I tried to play indifferent because, well my real father never wanted me so I wasn’t surprised when we also became distant…I figured this was no different. But then I grew up a little, I realized that he and my mother unfortunately didn’t work out but he was remarried now and has his own other children and that part of his life needed his attention. I don’t hold it against him at all. I love him, and I know that if I ever need anything and it’s in his power..he will make it happen like a motherfucking genie.
Then there’s my mother. The strongest, most annoying, craziest woman I know. And although she gets on my nerves sometimes and she ruined my credit when I was younger, I love her. So, she’s also remarried and I feel like she’s sort of been enslaved by her new marriage, but at least I’m glad she started working again. My mother has always been very independent and I always looked up to her for it. Never needing a man, never letting a man or anyone for that matter tell her shit. I fed off that attitude. And although I am in a very happy relationship, I know that I can succeed all on my own as well. SO back to my mother, her husband is always in a rush (I hate that), always needing to be somewhere or seeing someone. He can’t be still for long periods of time and he’s always drinking. I do however love the fact that he makes my mother happy, and she never needs anything. Our relationship has had our tough times, but all in all I know I can come to her with just about anything and she won’t hold back. Just like I wouldn’t with her as well. We do have that special mother/daughter bond regardless of everything.
See that? that’s my mother.
Thanks for reading! What’s your relationship like with your parents?! Let me know!
