My parents went through a divorce when I was 4 years old. The earliest memories I have of my father are not positive. My parents constantly fought -- the final nail in the coffin being my father cutting open my little brothers lip when he hit him.
He hurt my mother, brother, and several family members. He hurt me by not being a father I could look up to, and learn how to be a man from. As I became an adult, my hatred for him grew.
