It's a long story but I am not talking to my dad. I decided in Oct. After he called me and went off about many things that I wasn't going to talk to him until he can finally say sorry and that he wants to make things different. We've always had a shaky relationship but he's gotton worst. I just can't continue to cry about things I can't control. I still am sad about not being able to have a decent relationship with my father, but I've realized that having no relationship is better than having a good one. SO how can I finally get my mother to understand that I don't want her to keep pressuring me to call? SHe says she doesn't want to pick sides. I never asked her too. I told her she shouldn't, but she clearly picked his side even when he's wrong. So I need her to stop. What would you do?Answer Question

To 2nd Anon. Thats exactly how I feel. My dad is retired so if he wants to call he has all day and half the night to reach out. I'm here all day. and night I honestly don't call because I don't want to at this point, So it is annoying having my mom constantly asking me to call when she knows I'm the type to do what I want on my own terms. I don't need coaching. He did me wrong though and now that he's hit hard times physically a month after I should suck it up? No way it isn't going to happen. I think people should learn to treat those they claim to love right so that they can be there genuienly for them in their time of need.
