My Realtionship With My Dad Hurt Me

(From Panda Express article in Business Week)

I didn’t have a good relationship with my dad.  We didn’t talk, and he treated me unfairly, I always thought.  If he called, I wouldn’t pick up. I wouldn’t call him back.

I didn’t realize that I was hurting myself by holding on to what happened in the past.  I needed to let go. I can’t keep this anger inside me because it just hurts me.  It keeps me a prisoner.  I have to let that go to go forward.  That’s the commitment I am making.
