I believe in forgiveness. Growing up without my dad was hard. I tend to push everyone away who was only trying to be there for me. When I was younger, I was “Daddy’s little girl.” I was always with my father. One day everything changed. He cheated on my mother and got another girl pregnant. The other girl ended up having a baby boy, and when he got a little bit older we got close. When I was around six years old, my dad finally left my mother without any explanation. My father was in and out of jail, and I remember those days I used to go see him. It was hurting him being away from me, but I disliked him for leaving me behind. A couple of years later he got out, but by this time I was already over him. He got it easy. My mother never put him on child support, so he took advantage of it and blocked me off everything.
