I think by far, this is probably the roughest patch in life that I have got to go through, and hopefully the only one.
Betrayed, confused, angry, disappointed… The list goes on and on and on. I have never, ever, in my wildest imagination, thought that this would happen to me. Never did I once think that I would encounter such a monster, much less to call this person ‘dad’.
He has given me so much, both good and bad. I strongly believe the lessons he has brought me through would bring me to levels I’ve never thought I’d be at.
He gave me a good family. Your classic, cosy nuclear family of three. He gave me everything I needed, food, shelter and love. He gave me everything I wanted, education, gadgets, a comfortable life.
He was perfect to me. In every single way possible. I remembered saying this, “I will only marry someone like daddy.”
He turned out to be a devastating nightmare for me.
He became a complete stranger.
He did the unthinking-able.
He broke me, in so many ways that he wouldn’t understand.
What’s worse, he isn’t repentant.
I grew up. I grew so much stronger.
You, for doing what you have done, broke and built me.
I, in order to thank you for all the good and bad, am even more determined to make something great out of my life.
I have no idea what lies ahead of me. Neither do I know what’s the ‘something great’ yet.
But I’m getting there.
I will get there.
