Eh! Im feeling a little bummed. My dad broke up with his girlfriend on Monday and i thought it was a good thing for him because she seems to bring him down and she is just a downer and doesnt ever want any company or want to go any where. I thought this was for good this time since they had broke up before…but he told me today that he might get back with her if she promises to be a better person and treat him better and have a better attitude. I think he is afraid of being alone and afraid of starting off with someone new. I feel sad for him but i hope she treats him better and has a better attitude…or I hope that if she doesnt that this will be the last chance he gives her. I love him and just dont want to see him hurt.

Oh no! That is so hard, because we love our family members so much and want them to be happy…but when they don’t really know what will make them happy (being on own vs. being with someone who is a downer) it makes it even more difficult! Just try to be supportive. You can’t really control how she treats him, but you can definitely control how great of a support system you can be! He’s blessed to have you!

Yeah I asked him and he said he isnt an angel either and they are both a work in progress! But it just seems like this is the whole reason why he divorced my mom and now he is with someone exactly the same! I love my mom but her and my dad just didnt mix well! But thanks ladies…yeah i told him whatever he wants and if it is going to make him happy to try again with her I know he still has feelings for her but i wish he would move on. It isnt that shes abusive or anything its just her bad attitude and its always about her and she doesnt like hanging out with his friends or having company over…eh…hopefully it gets better.
Thanks again ladies.

I feel you. Growing up, I watched both my Mom and Dad struggle through relationships with people who weren’t good for them and hurt them. After they divorced, they never seemed to find that same happiness again.
It hurts to see those you care about not being treated like the wonderful people they are, but sometimes, just as our parents did for us, you have to let them make their own mistakes 🙁
I hope your Dad finds peace and happiness with a woman who deserves him.

D.Marie; it’s nice you have a good relationship with your Dad…at least he has you to talk to and confide in..my Dad dated someone after my parents got divorced and I too wanted the best for him..but youre right, sometimes its hard for people to be alone and sometimes being with someone is better than being with no one…I’m sure he’s grateful he has you to lean on!
