My biological parents, sure I hate the living hell out of them. Though I suppose the thing I hate the most about them is three fold. First of all I think the greatest insult they threw my way was my name. I am the fifth male of my family tree to bear my name , it is also of course the same one my biological father bore. To bear the same name as a person you'd gladly turn the skills your military training and experiences give you on is not something I can express in any of the languages I know.

The second is my face. I am physically a carbon copy of biological father. Every time I look in the mirror I see his face, a face that grows inside me a hatred few things can.

The third is the legacy they left me. Despite having more money then they knew what to do with my biological parents couldn't be bothered to raise me and put me up for adoption. Then they had the balls to die when I was still a child, a boy of ten in fact . I only really know them through the tales and pictures my biological grandfather told of them before his death at the age of 66.

They also had the gall to leave behind an estate worth a million and half dollars once everything was liquidated. And a damn letter asking for my forgiveness. As if they were entitled to it by the money they left behind. Well I disposed of that blood money by distributing it to various charities.

Thanks for sharing that.

In your position, I highly doubt I'd consider an ounce of forgiveness similar. It's amazing what circumstances people come from. I count my fortunes, but I'm not sure what type of person I'd be without my obstacles--surely someone I'd disdain.

Despite beginnings, I hope you're at least happy with where you made it today.

My dad, for all the things he's done to my family, especially my sister :/

For now, I pretend to love him even though I only feel disgust and pity for him.

I hate both of my parents for different reasons and don't plan on ever not hating them.
My grandparents are the ones that raised me and I don't resent them at all. I used to, but that's just because I was an edgy teen that didn't know anything. They can be frustrating sometimes, but they are fantastic for everything they've done and I love them.

yes...my dad...but I don't really care for him. I have no love or hate towards him.

I never lived with him (I was born when my parents got divorced) so I never felt his love, I don't know what it is to have a dad.

I resent him because of something he did to me when I was younger, he has kids with other women and he is rich, he gave money to his other kids but when it came to me he told me I had to clean his house so I could receive money. I stupidly cleaned his house for a few months and he gave me $20 each time until one day one of my step-sisters came home and she asked him for money and he gave her $100 without asking anything in return.

I was only 14 and naive, that day I saw my mistake. I literally became a servant for him ...and he didn't pay good. haven't seen him since then.

I suppose in a roundabout way I am grateful for such a past. It drove me to a better person then them. I don't know if I have achieved such a thing but it does keep me trying nonetheless. And I agree we are our the sum of our obstacles, to earn every aspect of who and what we are makes it worth that much more. Aside from my face I like the person staring back at me in the mirror.

I am happy about where I made it. I mean there are aspects about my life I'd gladly improve but that's all of us isn't it. In the struggle for betterment is the meaning after all.

I did as a teenager and then when I moved out, I understood EVERYTHING.
And this is coming from someone who had a very strict and disciplinarian upbringing.

My father yes. I don't resent my mother, though we've never been that close and probably won't ever be, she's not a bad person we just really don't have that much in common so we can't connect on anything.

I love my mom, she tried her best to raise me well. I think she did a decent job.
My father has never been a part of my life. Which was mainly my own choice. I don't hate or resent him.

I used to resent my dad but it's better now.

It got better, when I moved out and over the past years our relationship has improved. It was good, when I was a child or teen but when I was around 20 I started to resent him for several reasons.
There are still things that I will never forget but I know that I have just this one father and that he won't be there forever so I tried to forgive them. We had a lot of good times and I'm thankful for them and we get along pretty well now. And as long as he acts the way he acts now I don't see a reason to resent him.
I will think about certain things once in a while but I don't feel as angry about them as I used to.

I do it also for myself. I don't want to stress myself (because that's unhealthy and makes you unhappy) because of things that others have said and done. I can't change them anyways.

Nothing serious but there are things I'd always hate about my parents. I love them but that doesn't mean I'd like it when they do something annoying.
