    I feel confused I love my step-father but I don't trust men i feel this stems from the fact that my biological father left me and abandoned me I feel this is getting in a way of our relationship as I want to love him I want him to treat me as his real daughter but I feel like he never would I feel like there is a reason I was abandoned I feel not good enough.I don't know why anyone would love me to be honest.I feel like my step-father does not understand how I feel and when I try to tell him he gets annoyed.I am scared as I am a teen and no one likes or wants teens everyone likes small children I feel like I will be replaced.I am finding it hard to move on from the past any advice?

    I think you should seek professional advice and get a therapist. They will help you work through your problems and help you understand your past and why you feel the way you feel now and how to overcome it. I also think you should talk to your step dad about the issues you are having and try to explain to him that its not to do with him but your own history

    All I know is that love requires a lot of trust and infatuation mixed together and it freaking hurts
