    Why can’t you love me?
    I don’t understand.
    Why am I not good enough?
    Is it because I have my mother’s eyes?
    Do I sicken you?
    Do I sicken you because I look so much like her?
    I’m sorry.
    I’m so sorry.
    I’d do anything for you.
    Why can’t you love me?
    I’m your daughter and yet i’m nothing but a stranger to you.
    I love you.

      Some people aren’t capable of loving anyone aside from themselves, possibly your father is such a person. You should accept the possibility that you’re not to blame, that you’ve done nothing wrong, and accept the certainty that neither you nor your father are perfect and that’s ok. I’m not close to my parents, either one, probably never will be. I don’t feel loved by anyone else, but I’ve learned to love myself and that’s enough for me right now. You seem to have a sensitive heart and I encourage you to focus on yourself, recognize your own virtues and embrace your own beauty; if you do it won’t matter as much if anyone else, your father included, loves you.

      This is why my father used to hit me. I looked like her, she left him and didnt want me. I know life sucks right now but eventually you will find people who treat you like family. You’ll regret the childhood you have and I’m sure you’ll feel like you’ve missed out on having functional loving parents… you just need to keep on keeping on. You will never be them, one day things will be better.
