My Dad just left me... - January 15th 2011, 01:34 AM

My dad walked out today. After months of fighting with my mom he came to me and said that he was leaving. I begged him not to walk out of the door. I told him by walking out the door he would be leaving me. He just looked at me and walked right out the door, got in his car, and left. I can't get over the fact that my dad was willing to leave me. I'm scared about my future. I don't know what's going to happen next or if my dad will ever come back. I know this is hard to answer, but I could really use some advice on how to deal with it. I'm just scared and upset and angry at him for leaving me.

hey there,
Welcome to the site! Really sorry to hear about what happened, but well done for reaching out to us here
Break-ups can be really hard to deal with, especially between parents because you feel caught in the middle. At least you can take some comfort in the fact that the months of fighting are over?
I know it's not much help right now, but things will get better and sort themselves out. This might have been for the best. Try to focus on each day as it comes rather than worrying about the whole future, and try to avoid getting your hopes up for him coming back. He might, but its better if your not disappointed.
We are here for you, if you want to talk to me more about anything feel free to message me


"Friends are like stars; you don't always see them but you know they are always there"

"It gives me hope. I love you so much. You give me a reason to breathe. Its something for me to not kill myself for" >>> means so much :')

Paramore! <3
Pm me anytime, I like to help!

Stay with your mother. You have to stay close to your mother because you are going through the same thing. You both lost someone. It is not for me to know why but you still have your mother. You have to encourage her and help her out as much as you can. I know when you are this age you begin to act different towards your parents but you need to be best friends with your mother. If I am not wrong she is concerned about your future too and how this affects you. It hurts both of you in both the same way and in unique ways but you have each other to lean on.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.

I understand your situation. My parents were five when they divorced and my mom moved away and got remarried. She has been married six times and my dad has three times. I dont get to see him like I want and me and my mom dont even live together. Your dad and your mom seperating is just a new step in your life. Try to keep or make contact with your dad and take everything good out of your situation as you can. Your dad loves you, and so does your mom. I hope that you can work through your problems and everything goes well.
