When my mom passed my dad also kind of ditched out on us. He doesn’t really try too hard to be there and keeps to himself quite a bit. I completely understand your frustration and even more so, your sadness. I am also close with my sibling and all we want is to have it be the three of us every once and a while. Just remember that you can’t control everything and of course, what everyone else is saying holds true – everyone handles it differently and parents are people too. Hang in there and just remember that you have your whole life ahead of you and one day you’ll have your own family to focus on!
