So with continuing the theme of you all being in my business, I’m still not talking to my dad. For the new folks who don’t know the situation, I was/am tired of my parent being rude and disrespectful, especially after I made him aware of his behavior, so I decided to put distance between him and I. I understand that he is the parent BUT I will not allow anyone to disrespect me, EVER. With it being the beginning of the new year, I said, “Tristan at minimum text the man happy new year”, so I did.
Well my dad called instead of replying back, but I didn’t answer. I looked at the phone and thought about answering but I’m not ready to talk to my parent. I felt myself going back to that place where he disrespected me and I wanted to do the same. So Instead of letting someone make me get ugly, I dubbed the call.
I’m still working on my attitude and my sanity wasn’t ready to deal with my dad. I still a big fan of apologizing when you eff up. I also know I’ll never get an apology from my father, so this isn’t me teaching him a lesson. I’m finding serenity within myself so at this stage I’m staying away from anything that can eff that up.
