So long story short my dad wasn’t too present in my life growing up as he was an alcoholic. He had cheated on my mom… the cliche… they divorced… I have been on and off talking with him and last year I cut him off because of personal reasons like how I felt he was overbearing to be around and that he wouldn’t listen to me.

Recently I was looking at my life and seeing how my daddy issues have affected me and someone advised that I should try to rekindle a relationship with my father. So I call him back today and the conversation went great. He admitted to his mistakes and apologized. I felt it was a very mature conversation and I was looking forward. Then he says he’s been seeing someone then I say I was happy for him. I am a bit surprised as he isn’t an attractive individual. I was expecting some older women not very attractive at all but a sweetheart nonetheless. To my surprise, she is not only 26, but very beautiful and seems extremely sweet. I barely spoke to her but I can’t say anything that seems upsetting about her inherent character.

I am very uncomfortable and I fear that my attempt to heal myself only made things worse and now this is going to affect me more as well. I just want to one day be able to be functional in a relationship and secure in myself. As I have a lot of issues when it comes to being with a guy. I become obsessive and lose myself in them. I feel like this put a dent in my want to have a relationship with my dad as I can’t imagine that this won’t overshadow everything. I am happy he found someone but I can’t help but feel how inappropriate this is. I am not speaking to my sister at the moment but I can’t imagine how she feels. My dad is dating someone one year older than my sister. That’s so bizarre. God forbid they have kids. I am not sure how to feel. I just want to get better but I don’t know how to process this.

Is it worth continuing to speak to him if this will continuously trigger me? Can I get over his relationship? Should I stop talking to him again? I just want to be a healthy individual but this has really sent me into a mental spiral at the moment. Let me know what you think.
