Dear Dad (#3)

Hey Guys! It has been a while since a wrote my last letter, and like always, there have been quite a few changes.

Dad… is still Dad.

{read the last part of this letter here}

He’s stopped trying to be better person. Like always, he thinks if he’s on his best behavior for a little bit, he’ll win us back and he can be his normal self again. But, at the very least, he is treating us decently. As time has gone on, I have come to realize a few things about him. He still loves us dearly, mostly because we are all he has left. His family rejected him and treated him VERY cruelly, abused and abandoned him. His story is a tragic story if I ever heard one. Despite this, he still tries to make sure they’re okay. I know this doesn’t excuse his behavior, but I have come to realize that he has at least tried to treat us better than he was treated. I know I may never be really close with him, but I still love him.

My Brother… is a little different. We haven’t talked about what happened, but I think we have come to a silent understanding. I can tell when my brother feels guilty for something he’s done. He definitely feels some degree of guilt. His problem is just that he’s to prideful to own up to it. But we all have our flaws. And honestly? I forgive him. We’re okay now. I definitely can’t share some things with him, but we’re on good terms now. It’s one of those sibling things, where you don’t come out and say it like it is, but you still both know how it is.

Other than that things have been nice. I a little confusing, but nice. Quite a bit sad too. But that’s life for ya. We have been blessed in so many ways, and faced some challenges too. I just want you all to know I appreciate every single one of you, for reading my letter, for publishing it. It means a lot.

Yours truly,
