The Unbreakable Spirit
The worst dad ever
Emily was living with her fifty-five-year-old father, who was very controlling over her life.
Her father felt that he was doing this in order to take care of her, but in reality she was suffering a lot from that control.
He did not allow her to go outside or get to know anyone else. Or even a friend at school, he controlled every detail of her life, so he used to choose the colors of her clothes and force her to wear certain colors.
Her father was behaving badly towards her on an almost daily basis, dealing with her as if she were a burden to him, and not giving her the necessary attention, yelling at her and being harsh with her, and that left deep scars on Emily.
Emily's father used to drink alcohol regularly, and he had evil friends. He always liked to stay up late at night with them, but he used to prevent them from entering the house or seeing his daughter because he was afraid of them.
His relationship with bad men and frequent drinking greatly affects his behavior towards his daughter, on the nights he drank a lot in her, became more aggressive and beat her, refused to apologize to her when he behaved badly, called her with words that should not be used on anyone.

That was the biggest shock that made her fall into a state of depression. She was waiting for her father to go to work or stay up late, then enter her mother’s room, who misses her so much. She has nothing of the mother’s pictures. All Emily remembers is that she woke up from sleep to the sound of the father crying while he was crying and destroying everything. around it
The girl was young, but she remembers how her father went out to the garden of the house and lit a fire, then she saw her father bring her mother's things such as clothes, hats, and expensive dresses, and he burned everything, in the end he collected the mother's pictures hanging on the walls of the rooms of the house, and threw them into the fire, Emily does not remember Everything because she was a little girl at the age of five, and now she has grown up to be 19 years old, and she does not dare to ask about her mother, or about the reason for her sudden disappearance all these years.
After these sad memories, Emily slept without feeling, she slept on her mother's bed full of dust and dirt, because the father was preventing Emily from approaching this room and not allowing her to clean it at all, he used to say, "Let the rats live here, they are like your mother."
With the passage of days, Emily tried to search for any way out of this situation, but all the doors were closed in her face. She tried to get a job, but her father did not allow her to work outside the home. The father was afraid that something bad would happen, but Emily did not understand what was going on in her. Father's Head, she tried to escape to her old friends, but her father would only let her out of the house with his consent.
The situation continued.. and Emily became suffering from depression, anxiety and loneliness, because of the neglect in which she was living, she began to feel that she did not deserve to live in this way, and she was seriously thinking of escaping from this prison in which she lives because of her eccentric father
One day, the father returned at night drunk under the influence of alcohol, and when he saw his daughter in front of him, he began to speak bad words, and said, "I do not trust women.. Your mother broke my heart and I hate you.. Do you hear what I say, Emily?.. I hate you because you will become like Your mother at the end"
After he threw those deadly words in front of a teenage girl who lacked attention, love and care, all he did was break her remaining patience.
" My father hates me.. Why do I live in a house where no one loves me? "
Escape.. Escaping from home and looking for another shelter is the solution.
She waited for her father to go to work, then walked out of the house, started walking the streets, with no idea where she was going..
After hours of walking through the cold and snowy streets, Emily finds herself in a public park. She was feeling tired, hungry, afraid, and very cold. She lacked warmth. She was far from society and did not know how to behave.
The worst was that the night was approaching, and she had no place to sleep. She started looking for any shelter. When she got tired, she sat in the corner and hugged herself before she froze. From the cold and began to cry." Is there really no one in this world who loves me?"

The lady's name was Rose, and she wanted to help Emily. She took Emily to her house, and gave her food, water, and clean warm clothes. In those moments, Emily began to feel safe for the first time in years.
When Rose asked Emily why she ran away from home, she told her about the difficult situation she was in. Rose did not believe what she heard, and decided to help Emily change her life.
Rose: "Dear Emily, there is no father in the world who hates his daughter. There is certainly a compelling reason why your father reached this state."
Emily remained silent. She knows that the reason is her mother, but she does not know the whole story.
Rose begins to help Emily look for a job until she finds a job as a waitress in a nearby restaurant. Rose teaches her how to get to the workplace and return home safely.

After approaching the neighborhood and asking the old neighbors, she discovered that her father was chasing her, looking for her until he brought her home, but Emily did not want to return, and she decided to confront him and defend herself. .
Emily approached the house and entered hesitantly. She knew that her father was present at this time. When she entered, she saw her father sitting on the floor under the chair. When she saw his face swollen and pale, she felt sad about his condition. The girl ran to him and hugged him tightly.
Emily: "I'm sorry, Dad.. I'm sorry that I left you, I used to feel that you weren't well in my absence..."
He denied that he became happy to see her.. He pushed her away from him and said: "All women are the same.. And you are like all women.. "

Father:" Liar, you left like your mother.. and everyone left me alone.. I promised your mother that I would quit drinking addiction in return for staying with me.. I begged her not to leave me and not abandon me.. In the end, I asked for a divorce and abandoned you and me.. Your mother is heartless. And now you repeat what your mother does"
Emily:" No, father.. I am a girl who needs her father to be with her always.. You said that you hate me.. but I love you with all my love.. I understood how things are.. and I understood that you kept me at home because you feared people for me .. You are afraid that I will leave you and stay away from you like my mother .. Isn't that true?"
The father's eyes began to tear, but he hid the tears from her:" Go.. go back to where you came from.. you look better.. everything changed for the better for you when you got away from me.. come on, leave where you were"
Emily:" I don't want to be away from you".
The father shouted:" Get out now.. Now.. Go.."
Laila was surprised by his unchanging cruelty.. Because of the shock, she remained silent
The father got up and took a bottle of wine and started drinking and cursing the women and calling them inappropriate words.
Emily went out walking slowly and sadly. She stood at the door and then turned to her father ...his look was pathetic. His clothes are dirty and he hasn't changed them in a month.
She said.. "I love you, my father.. despite everything.. you are my father whom I love.."
He was turning his back on her and didn't care what she said

Father:" Why are you calling me?"
Emily tried to hide her anger, and said: "There is no power in the world that would prevent me from talking to my father, my father whom I love. I just want to tell my dad who hates me that I love him..."
Sudden silence on the phone.
Despite that, Emily was speaking frankly and honestly, she told her father about the pain he had caused her, and the impact of his behavior on her life, and she wanted him to understand how his behavior was affecting her, and how he needed to change his behavior and actions, then she said..: "I just hope you stop drinking and go back to the way you were before my mom left..
I am not my mother and I will not leave you
. This is a promise. "
