my hearts are with all the other people like me who have shitty dads. whether they’re assholes, whether they’re abusive, whether they refuse to listen to you, whether they bailed on you, or whatever other shitty things they might have done, you don’t need them. you are strong and wonderful and perfect, so don’t let anyone tell you that you owe your father anything. you don’t. he’s a sperm donor and nothing more.
