Dad is great. He has a healthy relationship with me. I call for life advice, sometimes money, love advice, I call him just because I want to tell him something good that happened. My terrible mom just made me appreciate him more. The bad side is I also have some resentment due to the many times and sometimes still ongoing way he let’s her walk over him. I have a younger sibling that lives with mom and dad won’t take more action due to fear. Fear of what I dunno. To me it’s more like he takes the easy route. Throwing money at the demon is easier than fighting it for your younger kid. He also waited until I was an adult when I already knew how bad my mom was to talk about it and what to do. Sometimes he’s still indecisive.

I have my 4 year degree and am full time contracting work. It’s ok. Dad has his human faults. Overall though, he’s my hero now and he’s supportive. I guess, dad had to be and is the parent mom never was. For a long time I loved my mom more before she betrayed me and my dad. (had an affair by stealing my tuition money. I asked why my dad enabled my mom and still sometimes gives in. It’s all about the easier path. Which also angers me because that throwing money to a demon could be used to fund her meager retirement or my ongoing education to prepare us for the future or my younger siblings fund, but no. Demon asks and demon gets. Infuriates me a lot. I do want to one day fully cut ties so my dad can sink or swim without me to help emotionally stay strong against my mom. It gets too much a lot and he won’t do more about it to make our lives easier.
