^I'm glad court went well for you! But it is disheartening to read your dad didn't apologize.
I do understand that disappointment though, I was abused emotionally by my dad, my parents are separated, it's been almost a year since they separated, he never really took the time of effort to create a relationship with me, and actually did more damage when he would try, since he really had no clue. I'm trying to heal from that emotional abuse, I definitely think that he could be a part of the reason I am so shy, and have troubles opening up to people, but it never really affected my relationship with guys, I may have a hard time trusting right away, but I know that there is someone out there meant for me, but interacting with people in general is pretty shaky, I'm like you Autumn, I am so soft spoken, no one can ever hear me, I always want to just slide back into a shell, and have someone else deal with things for me. Anyway, now that he's our of our house, he tries to text me every week, he sends me cards around holidays (which is sweet, I have to admit), I got a random card with $20 in it today (which is going to help me out with the things I need for my boys), he writes these mushy things in it, I am not sure how to feel about it really..
Geeze I ramble, hahaha
