She noted in the letter that his ’empty promises affected her deeply’, adding that she ‘never wanted to hear from him again.’

“For all thy years I have lived, I have watched you take care of everybody except me. I was your first born (as far as I know) and you treat me like I was never born, she wrote.

“But I don’t care much about that either. What hurts me now is that me and my mother struggle and you can’t even help her a little bit…

“While you are siting there not giving moral support l, not even something as little as your love. There is nothing you could ever do to heal the wounds”.

In the letter she wrote, she told her father that the only way to make her happy is to stay away from her.

Sharing a video of herself ereading the letter, she wrote;

“I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share this excerpt with you from #MoreMyself…

“In the early part of my teens I wrote this letter to my father, Craig. I wanted nothing to do with him. My words came from a place of vulnerability and longing. At the time it hurt so much to experience what felt like empty promises. I swore I didn’t care, but I did and it affected me deeply. I finally had enough and wrote those words.

“It’s CRAZY that he kept this letter after all these years. I was so shocked when he first showed me. It was tucked away in a shoe box full of memories. I’m glad he and I can look back at it now as a sign of how far we’ve come

“If you feel moved to share, send me a deep relationship that you have had to remove from your life, or one that has been mended, or that you want to see evolve, or are working on changing.

“I think it’s so powerful that relationships have their own path. And sometimes they are meant to heal….Regardless though, most of the time the healing comes from letting go.”
