Arrow "Rescue" fantasies for those abandoned. - August 18th 2009, 12:51 AM

Hey, I was just wondering how many out there who were abandoned (run away parent, adopted, etc.) have had "rescue fantasies" and if so what they are.

Mine was always, if I got to a place in my life where my future was concrete and I started to get into my dream job that pays a lot, that my parents would come back for me and want to be with me and there for me this time around. Like I proved to them that I mattered and was important enough for them to care about.

I guess that's why I'm having such a hard time now because I held on to that fantasy for so long that I started believing it would actually come true. Some kind of fool's wish, huh? I'm right there in my life and I'm still alone. It fucking sucks, but whatever...

Just wanted to know what other people's fantasies might be and how they play out.

my dad left a few years ago, and although all my life I never felt he really loved me entirely, I sometimes think I'll see him around again and we'll eventually talk about all that happened. Maybe we'd be closer after all of it, and then he'd finally act like he loved me after all, and regretted leaving.

I know that might not sound like a fantasy, but it is. My father never tried to contact me even though he had all my information, and he didn't want to pay child support for me either he fought it all till the bitter end.

I hope this is what you were talking about as well
