If your father (or mother) lied to you, and it ruined your life, would you ever speak to them again?

    I agree with you about keeping a distance with your bio dad. I myself could not handle that. It was probably best for you to do so. Thanks for your opinion.

    I agree. We didn't choose our parents, and if it was someone else, we would not have a relationship with them. Civil if met in public, but otherwise no.

    I disagree. While this question was not about my parents, I did not speak to my mother for the last 4 years of her life. I do NOT regret it. She was such a negative and toxic person, I could no longer take it.

    It started with one lie, and it has been ongoing for 10 years. It is not my parents that I speak of, just to clarify. When a lie ruins the course of your life, I don't believe it is drastic. I tried to expand on the question, but it won't let me :)

    I agree with you 100%! I avoid dealing with toxic people period. Too often people feel stuck or obligated to put up with people and especially family members who treat them like crap. I remind them they get to (choose) who they spend time with. :-)

    Thanks for your input. I personally don't understand lying, and why a parent would do that. I would not jeopardize any relationship with a lie.

    This lie was not directed to, or at me. I was trying to get opinions. Thanks so much for your input. Parenting is not easy, but for a parent to lie intentionally is rather sad.
