my dad divorced my mom when i was in college
in that time i met and married my husband. my mom died three months after the wedding. my dad didn't call or reach out. he stopped speaking to his elderly parents, brother, sister and all friends. just gone. didn't see his own mom before she died in 2020.
now i have a son and i tell him i love him an excessive amount each day. i wonder how i could ever get to a point where i could leave him. and still, after all the anger and therapy and forgiveness and healing... i just wonder what my dad would think of my life now.
