Re: Some unfortunate things as a Teenager... READ!
Guys, be careful about jokes, especially when you don't mean it seriously to physically
attack the father. I'm not sure if Joey gets the joke. (He hasn't a few times)
Joey, there's no excuse when a father abuses his child in any way, it's a sad thing.
Maybe it's really the right thing to just go away and get some distance between you.
Some years later it'll maybe settle.
I wouldn't think like "when I'm 18 I won't ever have to see him again" or something like
this. You never know, but despite the fact that it may sound most unappealing and cheesy
at the moment, reconciliation is one of the best things there is, and it gives you a great
amount of peace and freedom. I'm not saying you should or you can now, but never say
never. I believe everyone deserves a second (or third) chance. I'm sure your dad isnt' happy
with the situation between you either, or if he doesn't care, one day he will. Maybe now
that you've gone?
