My parents and I don't see eye to eye - May 26th 2011, 05:55 PM

I've been having some problems. Mainly, it is problems with my parents. Anyways, they keep bringing up something from my past that I've worked hard to put behind me. They tell a lot of people about it. It doesn't feel like they have forgiven me. I always have had problems with them, but when my parents keep bringing up my past, then it really creates problems.

My mom decided to talk to me about not letting my dad even touch me. I don't like being touch unless I trust someone. I somewhat trust my mom, so I can stand to give her hugs. My dad never really gained my trust. I can never talk to him or confront him or anything. I can have him touch me or anything. I feel bad for hurting his feelings, but I have no trust. I don't trust any guys really. I've never trusted a lot of people. I guess I'm just tired of hurting my dad, but I don't want to get hurt myself.

Can anyone help me?

It really does suck that you can't have your dad hug you or anything but that is the reality of if. Later in my life, it got hard for me to let guys that were close to me, like my father and such to hug me because things happened to me when I was little. Although when I was little those close to me I was fine to let hug me, it was more so within the last five to eight years.

But anyways, your mom has to respect your choices and back off and you need to tell her that. You can't help that and it is hard because at the end of the day its your dad. Now what you can do is talk to your dad and let him know you know it hurts him and how you wish it weren't like that because you have no intention of wanting to hurt him and you can talk to him about the whole trust thing and tell him that you want his trust and maybe you two can work on building that trust.

Always remember to put your happiness first.
