Hello everyone, I'm glad to be here. It's been a long time since I've joined a forum, but I feel I'm in the middle of a major life shift at this point in my life, so I figured it might help to join a forum based on typology.
You need to have at least three under your belt before you can post here.
How many times have I slammed the door on someone, or how many times have I shut someone out of my life? I've slammed the door on 2 or 3 people after an argument or something, but I've never really shut anyone out completely.
Now that I understand what a doorslam is, I guess I've doorslammed my father whom I haven't seen since I was 10 years old (I'm 23 now). My parents divorced when I was about 2 or 3. My mom got complete custody and moved many miles and states away from my father. This really isn't a completely conscious or intentional doorslam, it's just that I haven't made a conscious effort to contact him, nor has he made an effort to contact me. I guess on some level I'm angry that he never made the effort, and on another level I blame myself now that I'm an adult. I really just don't think I have the courage to call him. He remarried and now I have two half brothers I never met, of whom my mom found out about indirectly. He couldn't even tell me. Anyways, sorry about the rant. I guess I feel more comfortable talking about this anonymously on the internet than I do to even my girlfriend.
P.S. sorry if this should be in the doorslam thread. I found it relevant in both places.
