Hey Kendi.
I know it's hard to be treated this way, believe me. Especially when it's someone in your own family who seems to never appreciate you. But don't let your father get you down. He might pick out your flaws and get angry with you for certain things, but I'm sure that he really does care about you, and may even be more proud of you than you think. He just might not always show it. No matter what, just be you. You're not going to be able to please everyone in life, but people are going to appreciate you no matter what. They might just not always do such an amazing job of letting you know that.

Have you tried talking to your dad about these things? Maybe letting him know that you don't feel as if you are exactly appreciated or cared about around him? Maybe he would try and take that into consideration the next time he's about to put you down. It sounds like you guys really need to talk and realize that despite the little flaws you and he both might have, you're still one great person. And I'm sure that he does in fact see you in that way. Maybe, like I said, he just doesn't always show it.

You definitely are enough, Kendi And you're perfectly fine, more than fine, actually, the way you are. Hang in there. x





A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts

Re: My Dad - April 15th 2009, 03:06 AM

When I was younger, I used to have the same problem. No matter what I did or how hard I tried, I felt like I was never good enough for my parents. A B+ in a class was like the ultimate failure in school and I just never seemed to be able to work enough around the house for them to be satisfied.

But then one day, when I was about 13, I finally realized that I shouldnt give a fuck if Im good enough for them, as long as I felt like I was good enough for myself. Im still having trouble with that self-esteem thing but at least I try not to let my parents bring me down.

Its all about YOU, honey. If they don't think we're good enough, then thats their fucking problem.


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.
