I regret not letting you know how I feel about you. Things have changed so much over the past 7 years. I’m not the same person and neither are you. You are supposed to be my father but you try so hard to avoid any activity that has to do with you being a parent. You never went to any of my concerts even though you had the time. Instead, you sat at the bar. You were only at my open house because there was an open bar. You got drunk at my wedding reception. You didn’t help me move into my first house. Now, you don’t even seem to care that I’m moving across the country.
I regret not letting you know that I’ve lost all respect for you after what you put me through. I regret letting you get away with the way you treat me. I regret getting upset but still forgiving you and letting you do the same things over and over.
But most of all, I regret that I can’t keep up our relationship if you aren’t going to try, and I don’t think you’ll try after I move.
