    So..I just want to tell my story and hopefully anybody who has been in a similar situation can provide some insight.

    About 2 years ago my father and I had an argument and we haven't spoken since.

    It all started because my sister and I didn't like his then girlfriend. My dad moved out of our house (leaving my sister and I alone) to live with her.

    At first things were still quite normal. Once I finished uni and started working my dad just stopped talking to me (this was when the fight started). To this day I don't know why he is mad even though I have tried to ask. When I ask he says it's because my sister and I only care about money and inheritance and I don't know how to express that this is far from the truth. He also says that everyone is against him because we do not like his girlfriend.

    In the last 2 years we have become estranged. He and his girlfriend got married and are now expecting a new child. I'm 25 now and the last 2 years have been pretty tough.

    I have tried to talk to him and to patch things up but he always says I am being manipulative. I have tried to set up coffee meetings and he simply just doesn't turn up.

    I don't know why this is happening.

    In the meantime I have continued to work and am now pursuing a post graduate degree. It has been hard living without any support (both emotional as well as financial) but I'm managing to get by. My biggest concern is of course the state of our relationship - basically no longer having one.

    I would appreciate all kinds of feedback. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Managed to get out of it? Thanks
