THE SECRET LIFE OF DAD'S
He is not much of a talker. Was bullied and shouted at by my mother for years on end, till he had enough. He worked all his life and was the money giver in the family. He was rather a social worker, but had his stint in the army, which is really strange as he did not defend himself from my mother. He did not help when I got bullied, but could finish my childhood paintings, repair bikes and build us a house.
He’s anger showed when for years not talking to us, hiding from us and then telling us that he owns a castle. He is married to a woman I hate and has new children who are as useless as we are. But as this mother is not bully to her own kids, they have an easier life then we had. They do not need to go to work or get through three years of grueling training.
There are things I want to say to him, but how you say something when he is not a big talker? He is 77 years old and still working and building. He has more talent, intelligence and guts and strength then we all together. He was able to fend for us and the house with his business, where I have to still be employed full time and run my business next to it.
Our husbands in the family do not work every day 10 hours per day, they tend to be sick, want to work less or not at all. Through him we had our own house and a large garden, but thanks to our bullying psychotic mother this went sour and one after the other left. This is why he got the divorce, instead of getting help from the doctor for his loud, mean and psychotic wife.
I want to copy him and work 10 hours a day, because this is when you get things done. And like him I come across people who do not want to work so much but have a loud and mean voice. I would like to tell him this, but find it difficult. I told him I will write a postcard
