Coming Back!

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 2, 2014, 6:47 AM






Thank you everyone who has supported me and given me their valuable advice about how to deal with my family situation in China. I'm happy to say that my father and I are on much better terms now. It's honestly more than I could ever have hoped for and I haven't been this happy in a long time. 

The comments you guys left really helped me believe in myself. Thanks to everyone's encouragement, I know I wasn't in the wrong. I was able to firmly explain my problems with my father. It took many long and heated discussions before we finally came to an understanding but it was definitely worth it. He eventually admitted that he was wrong, and shouldn't have brushed me aside as being "too bothersome" or not worth angering his crazy wife for. He said he regrets the way he treated me, and has promised to try to visit me once a year. It's really hard to put into words how much that means to me, and I truly thank you all for helping me get to this point.

I read in the comments that many have experienced similar or even worse family situations than mine. Looking back, I consider myself fortunate to have a father who is willing to change for the better. I sincerely hope everyone coming from a dysfunctional family can eventually find peace and reconcile. Before my father apologized, I never could have dreamed that he would ever do so. I was very close to not giving him another chance, but I'm glad I did. I guess what I'm trying to say is, for everyone out there who still hurting due to their family, don't give up just yet. I hope everyone can find happiness one way or another. As long as there is a tomorrow, there is still hope. 

With that said, my flight back to the US is tomorrow morning. I'll be working hard on Fisheye Placebo and all the other things I've put aside due to this trip to China. Again, thank you guys for all the support through out all the years!

In other news, I'll be at Kraken Con this April 6th at the Oakland Convention Center with my prints and booksI really look forward to meeting everyone back in America again :D See you guys there! :hug: :love: :heart:

umm, I wrote a long comment to your previous journal entry. Kindly ignore the advice I gave you in that comment, I wanted to read the journal entries in order and I read this one last LOL. I'm glad to hear both you and your father talked it out and he decided to admit his mistakes and make a go at changing and visiting you more. when I hear/encounter catalyst that cause changes to a family, I almost never hear about a catalyst/encounter where the change occurred because the two affected parties discussed their problems with each other, I hear and encounter something different (e.g kids running away from their family, and this causes a change in the family to treat the kid nicer). 

Despite I don't have plans to reconcile with my own family and have instead, just reconcile with my current situation and being at peace with the fact that my own family won't change, as a person who is still suffering from the problems that life threw at me, I will say thankyou for wishing everyone here who has a dysfunctional family to find peace and reconcile with their own family^^.
