Unhappy My dad scares me for no reason... - January 13th 2011, 02:15 AM

So, i'm not sure what's up with me.
For the past year or so, my dad has terrified me.
He is a really caring dad, but he's emotionally/mentally abusive. That's for another day, though. I don't know why, but when he touches me, it terrifies me. I'm afraid he's going to molest or rape me, and I don't really know why. He's never touched me inappropriately that I know of.
He's a very feeling person, but like I said, never inappropriately. Like, he will call me in randomly to sit and lie down on the couch and he'll cuddle me and rub my back and stuff, or he'll just ask me to give him a big hug. For the past year, whenever this happens, I find myself thinking things like," ... I wish he would stop" or," What if he goes farther than this?!" and things a lot worse, like," Oh my god... Why is he doing that?"
It's putting a strain on our relationship, because it scares me to the point that i'll go into another room when he comes in unless he forces me to stay. I never want to go anywhere with just him, and sometimes I just flat out ignore him when i'm worried.
I don't really know why I am acting like this, but I would really like to get past it since it's straining our relationship.

Look at me
I will never pass for a perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter

can it be
I'm not meant to play this part?
Now I see
That if I were truly
To be myself
I would break my family's heart ♥

Hi there
I’m really sorry you are in this sticky situation involving your father. But I think that if your father is really making you feel uncomfortable you need to let him know straight up, ask him to stop it that its making you feel uncomfortable around him. If he doesn’t stop and you have your mother there with you tell her, you should never feel uncomfortable in your house.
Good Luck.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.
