Dear Dad

15 Apr
Dear Dad,
Did you have to? Did you have to break apart a marriage and a family?  Did you have to force me to watch the pain it caused my mom? Did you have to lie about that bitch? Did you have to constantly guilt trip me?  Did you have to bad mouth my mother and then make me feel guilty for defending her?  Did you have to make me watch you try to numb life with the alcohol?
I guess you did.
But just know how much it sucked for the rest of us.
But at the end of the day, you’re still my dad.  And when I really think about it, all the good things you’ve done for me far outweigh the bad.  You are always there for me, with a little extra money, encouraging me, pushing me to do my best, and reassuring me I can do anything I set my mind to.  I’ll always be your little girl.
Love you always and forever,
