Quoting Devil's Advocate:" Sometimes it's best to get rid of people in your life space who aren't worth worrying about."
I did that... My father was out of my life for 7 years and we have been in contact for the last 3 years. We've lived an hour away for 2 years. I have been trying to bury the past away, forget about it... when I was without him for those 7 years I went crazy. It was either from my step mom making him choose between me or "his real family" in front me and him choosing her and then kicking me out... plus being a teenager didn't help at the time. I tried to forget, move on.. but I can't. I see the little things like me not being invited to special events that happen in my siblings life, to it taking a whole freaking month to come out and see my daughter. I don't know if I should write a letter... or what... and then cut off ties. I need closure. but I don't know how to get it.
