Loss of father

Having a down day and wishing I could see or speak to my father again. I would have opened up more to him.....whom am I kidding. I probably would not have the nerve now, as I didn't then, to talk freely with him. Strange, his family (my step family) said they never had that problem. i.e. he was easy to talk to, gave them advice and positive feedback.....He acted the opposite with me and my siblings, he was very judgmental - only had negative things to say to us - about how we looked or didn't have a 'worthy' jobs, etc. Perhaps this is part of the grief process or another excuse for feeling like I do. I am an outsider not only in life but family as well - by choice - do not know how to communicate with others.
