      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Cannot grieve for my father

Recommended Posts

My father died on 13/12/2017.  When I received the news, I cried.  Afterwards I cried maybe twice for a few seconds.  I think of him everyday though.  The problem is I feel so guilty that I am not grieving for him.  My father was a really difficult person who made life unbearable for me and my siblings (mostly me), as well as my mom.  Whenever I think of my dad I think of the day he told me that no matter what I achieve in my life, he will never be proud of me.  That's what I had to put up with ever since I can remember.  Don't get me wrong, he was my father and I would have cared for him if he had gotten sick in my home.  I loved him no matter what and I did forgive him many words he said to me.  I just cannot grieve for him.  I don't know if its because maybe I have not fully realized that he is gone forever, or am I just a heartless daughter?  This is really getting to me.  I cry because I cannot cry for my deceased father, and that's that.  am I an evil person?
