Kicked out! D: | General Discussion | Forum
March 4, 2013
So I haven't really been able to be online as much as I could before, because my dad kicked me out of his house. Where I live now, has no internet >.<
The last post i put up was how my dad didnt understand my piercings, and I want so many of them. Now i live with my grandmother, and though she doesnt understand them she lets me have them, and might be letting me get more soon. Me and my dad dont really talk much anymore, so he doesnt really have much of a say in my piercings anymore.
As much as i hate that he kicked me out, I'm glad that i now have the freedom i wanted when it comes to my piercings. ^___^
I'm sorry to hear things didn't work out with your Dad. Hope you're ok?
I also hope in time you can rebuild that relationship and learn to understand each other.
I think it's for the best, at least for the short term. I echo Oakbear's words, hoping that you can reconnect with your father and repair the damage to your relationship. Hopefully he will come to understand you better. For now though, I say focus on understanding yourself better. You probably won't be able to explain things to others very well until you do.
Best of luck to you.

I fancy myself a story teller and I've been looking for the time to share this one…
Two children of similar age, race, and background were taken in to the doctor for psychological evaluation. One child had a very negative attitude, and one child had a very positive attitude.
First the doctors put the kid with the negative attitude in a room full of gifts. They observed the child. He ripped through the presents complaining about everything… "This bow doesn't match this paper. This tape is too tight. This is the wrong color. This needs more batteries. This is the wrong size. blah blah blah" The doctors were not impressed.
Next came the observation of the child with the positive attitude. The kid was put in a room full of poop. To the amazement of the doctors, he was happy. The kid was tossing up the poop and singing and dancing. Looking around with wonder and joy. So, the doctors asked the child with the positive attitude, "What are you doing? This is poop and it's gross and it stinks!!"
The child replied with a smile, "I know in all this shit there MUST be a pony in here somewhere."
I like the story Sommersett. We need to remember to see what is there, as opposed to our fears or hopes.
Derita, hang in there. Don't let your Dad not talk. Keep in contact regularly, tell him you care, and try and be positive and pleasant. Don't let yourself get drawn into conflict. Show him what a great person you are, and how much he should be proud of you for.
I'm not saying it'll work, or be easy, but keep those lines of communication open.
It's too easy to let things slide and lose contact, creating divides which never heal. If he is not going to be the adult and not allow that to happen, you'll have to be.

You can never force someone to talk or NOT talk for that matter. They do it because they want to!!! Silence and distance can be just as much of a healer and teacher as being close and talking. In my opinion, the face of father, brother, lover and friend change, but the morals, character traits, actions, and personality are attributes which we can seek. Otherwise, acceptance is the best solution.
Also, I tend to be a dreamer and an idealist.
Oakbear has sound and pragmatic advise!!
