Sad today, missing my dad - July 16th 2011, 12:45 PM

Hi, I have not posted much. But I have been reading.

I am missing my dad today. It is my birthday. He left us in December...just left, we have not heard from him since. Usually he treated my birthday like a pretty special day. My mum will, so that is all right, but I just hate how over and over and over there is a space where he used to be. It gets better right?

Hey there. I'm sorry that you're in this position.
I think it does get better. Gradually, you begin to fill up the hole. And there'll always be something missing, but you can deal with it, so it won't affect you so much.
Seeing as it's only been a short while since your dad left and it's a day you would have spent together, you're going to be feeling vulnerable, and that's ok. Try letting your mum know how you feel, she probably feels the same way as well. I hope you have a nice birthday with your mum, and I hope you feel less sad soon.
I'm always here if you need someone to talk to. x

It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless.
RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.

I believe that it will get better. You are much stronger and more resilient than you think you are. You are capable of overcoming many obstacles, including your father's absence. I'm sure that today will be harder than an average day, but you can get through it, and you can get through this entire ordeal, given time. I'm not saying you'll ever stop missing your father, but eventually, you'll find ways to fill up that hole in your heart.

Thank you both very much. We are about to celebrate tonight so that is nice, and I feel a bit better. I went biking in a park this afternoon.

I am glad to know it gets better.
