I have both good and bad memories of my dad. I remember him beating my mom. He was very physically and mentally abusive to her and she reminded us everyday. I remember standing on his feet while we danced in the kitchen. I remember the visits we used to have at the prison and how loving he was toward me and my sibling.
I am in my mid twenties now. For the past year I hve held onto a letter I wrote to him. Everyday I wonder if I should send it or not. It is basically ten pages about me; who I was, who I have been, and who I am. My family would disapprove, my friends have mixed feelings, and I have questions about the other part of who I am.
I'm looking for advice here. Should I send it or just leave things where they are?
