…I do not want it snowball into what I have become. I do not want her to harm herself, in any way; it would be a gross waste of a life. I want her to make amends with me, for us to talk as adults, not father and daughter, for me to hopefully forgive her, depending on what she says and then for us to get on with our lives as best as we all can because anger is the worst emotion that you can have. It is like a cancer as it eats one up from the inside out.
If she is brave enough to admit that she has made a huge mistake, then fine and I will work with her to get over the guilt. Her grandfather knew of her weakness and used Verity as a pawn to ruin me, which he succeeded in.
There is another path that Verity can take and, as my little girl, although she is 23, I hope that she takes it. I have offered to forgive her so many times but it requires bravery to admit that you were wrong; I know that she is up to the challenge. I have put down so many olive branches that she could walk from wherever she lives to my house, without touching the ground. Then, just maybe, it may become a home again and I will have my daughter back.
