usually I hate fathers day, I never met mine, so it's usually quite the triggering time

it was fathers dday yesterday, and for most of the morning, I didn't even know about it- I only found out later in the afternoon when someone mentioned it, and by that time my mind was elsewhere and I couldn't have cared less about it.


yay for me not crying at fathers day

Hi, and I can relate. I never knew my father, and met him when I was 32. I am sorry you didn't know your father.

I was thinking more about my husband yesterday, spending FD with the kids without me there because we are divorcing. My father passed when I was 12. Although I have been thinking of him a lot lately, tbh I didnít think at all about him yesterday as far as it would have been nice to have my father to celebrate FD. I donít have any memories of ever celebrating with him when he was alive, though I am sure we must have done that. Gosh, I kind of feel bad now for not even thinking about him.

I also got through FD yesterday without feeling too sad. Iím sad to be ending my marriage, but I was fine spending the hours alone while the rest of the family celebrated. It has to be this way.
