Never ignore this sign.

It’s really painful to say goodbye to someone that you don’t want to let go of, but it’s even more painful to hold on to them if they never wanted to stay in the first place. If someone doesn’t show you the same love that you show them, and acts as if you are unimportant most of the time, this may be a big clue as to the fact that you don’t need them in your life either. The only people you truly need in your life are those who respect you and want you to be in theirs.

  2. I have two daughters that don’t call me, won’t have anything to do with me. Recently my youngest daughter had a big wedding in Sacramento Ca with about 150 people. I was not invited. I don’t know why they are treating me this way. I tried to be a good father. I was always trying to be in their life. I am hurt but, like you Esther I have decided to move on in my life. Let go and decided that the best thing to do is not have the toxic relationship in my life any longer. I don’t want anything to do with them. And plan to just tell them if they ever contact me that life is too short for me to put up with their unhappiness. No offense, but I have a life to live. Letting go of the past and moving on.

    1. Frank, take it from me (My father abandoned me), don’t give up! Your daughters are not your past, they are living now and they are your present. Try everything to make amends. Be a good example. Hear them out, don’t argue. Hear their feelings because feelings have no rights are wrongs. Wipe the slate clean and start fresh and let go of all bitterness and resentments. Be the hero and show your daughters that you can be the father they always wanted. It will take time. It’s not an overnight process. With some patience and determination and love, I’m sure you will rekindle your relationship. Never ever stop trying when it comes to your children. God bless!
