My dad doesn't have time for me - June 7th 2013, 08:29 PM

My dad and I used to do stuff together a lot and we'd watch tv shoes together, just the two of us. But ever since coming out as bisexual to my parents he's been favoring my straight brother. He doesn't have the time of day for me. The shoes that used to be special to us my brother is now invited to watch with us. The movies we used to go see together are now watched with my brother... I hate myself so much now. Why can't I be normal like my siblings... I wish I had never been born

Don't say that. I believe that everyone is born for a reason. So no hating yourself. Why don't you talk to your dad? I know, it's the same advice everyone gives for almost every problem. But that's because communication is key. It will probably be hard. But you both have to just sit down and have a long talk. About everything. How you feel. How he feels. Everything single topic you can think about. Your dad is just surprised by your coming out. That's all.

Be strong.......

PerfectingPerfection, I have talked to my dad about it. He said that nothing has changed and he still loves me. He just doesn't have time for me. He obviously prefers my straight siblings because he has time for them ...

Why don't you tell him that's how you see it and you want him to start making the time for you more often like he used to Just demand the time, tell him how much it hurts you that he seems to be favouring your brother(s?) more than you ever since you came out that that it's making you feel lesser of yourself. What about your mom?
