Should I acknowledge my father on Father’s Day? Daddy never was in my life; stranger really. So?

Question by ye v: Should I acknowledge my father on Father’s Day? Daddy never was in my life; stranger really. So?
My father left my mother and brother at the age of 3 years old. I also found that he was abusive to my then teenage mother (16 years old). Now that he is a disable crack-addict and now lives in the same city, he wants me to visit him. Growing up his where abouts were a mystery to me and my brother, so we really never had and father-figure in our lives. My brother does keep in touch with him but I go on as always; as if he still does not exist. My brother thinks I am being cold, but how can I feel for a stranger. I do have a fatherly lust out from childhood memory, he got me to love broccoli, to love “Cheech and Chong”, I love the rides in the back of his 10-speed and he taugh me to roller disco ( hey,, it was the ’70). To this day I still “roll bounce”. I still do believe to this day that his “HERB GARDEN” actually had real organic herbs. My brother laughs at me and tells me at least it was municiple;>)

    hun..i know how you’re feeling,but my story is even worse,im still 16 yrs old,i live with my father,but we treat each other like we are invisible,we say no good mornings no good nights,no birthday cards or anything,never say i love you,we barley speak ! its even worse and hurtful ! im always jealous when i see my friends with their fathers,they have the greatest relationships with him..!
    it just sucks !

    Well…it sounds like you have some thinking to do on if you can forgive all of the negative things about your father and what he has done to you and your family. Honestly, you may be able to forgive with time, but I know you won’t forget. I have a similar situation, and honestly, I never even get a birthday card or a Christmas card and it has been 22 years of my life, so the thought of sending him a fathers day card is out of the question for me. But you might be different.

    No. He wasn’t there enough to be considered a father. You grew up without him. You never had him, even when you needed him. He isn’t worht it.
