Good stuff nltsaved!!
Nothing like some paternal disapproval now is there???
It took me years but I now know that his approval will never come. I now know that I can live without it, I also have learned not to share anything about my life, my recovery, my reasons, nothing of the real me is ever discussed. In fact, I moved about 2600 miles from the family of origin. (the origin of incest, violence, abuse and hate). I noticed that they don't ever call me. I choose to call them...I may not always choose to do so...but they don't know dick about what I do, and I choose to be a success.
