After days and weeks of text messages coming from my father, I decided that I could not put up with the messages and his hateful words any longer. Even though I was not responding to his text messages, they kept on coming. Even though they would stop for a couple of days, they would end up coming back.
I just wanted to put this whole ugly mess behind me and move on with my life. I was done trying to help my father quit drinking, and I realized the most important thing of all: I needed to start helping myself deal with this issue. The first step to helping myself was to block all text messages from his number.
Finally, a sense of relief took over as I realized I would not be waking up to these hateful text messages. I could finally move past this and move on with my life.
