Can't let go & slowwwly dying

by FrancisHall on February 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I can't let go of the fact that my father never wanted me or excepted me for who I was as a child and for who I'am now. He has long moved on and forgotten about me 7 years ago after he kicked me out of his house and we haven't spoken a word to one another since, but i still long for his exceptance. It's been eating away at me for 7 years now and for most of my 27 years alive. i'm depressed, anxiety ridden and suffer from depersonalization disorder and all i have to do is let him go but i can't. it hurts because i never did anything wrong to him. So I just can't help but to wonder why. Why doesn't he love me? What did I do wrong?
