Please Help I Need Advice!!! How Do I Ask My Father For Forgiveness From This by definitelyME: 7:24am On Jun 14
Hello guys... yesterday was the worst day of my life...a day I don't think my dad would ever forget, even if he forgives me...

Let me go straight to the point...

My father and I got into a very bitter and frequent misunderstanding yesterday night, it got so bad that after much insults from my dad, I don't know where the devil came from or where the boldness came from, and made me call my dad a BASTARD..I rained abusive words on him that night in front of my younger siblings..

I packed my bags to leave the house to anywhere away from there (to run away) but my mom wouldn't let me go...so I stayed... Watching my mom shed tears, and after much thought, I began to regret my actions...

I am currently confused on what to do....I don't know how to approach my dad for forgiveness because he doesn't want to be near me..

Please guys, need advice on what to do...I don't want things to be like this for long...

It was the same thing one of the sons of Noah did in the Bible, and he was cursed. Honor your father and mother THAT THINE DAYS BE LONG ON THE EARTH was the command. God is the creator of everyone and everything, apologize to God first and genuinely repent. Then approach your dad and roll on the floor till he forgives you. Then, you can leave the house... Obviously, you've out stayed your title as a child in that house. Go be a man, and have some value in their eyes... But, be a man in a legit way.

He'll surely forgive you, just try your best to show it in your character that you're a changed person, be diligent in your work..I don't know your age or what you do for a living but good results will always make any parent happy, also your relationship with your Dad will determine the way you should apologize, if your both are that close walk up to him and have a talk, apologize and explain things to him and also keep away from what you did that caused the fight last night..

When he is calm, just go postrtate and hold unto his leg, try and show remorse by crying.

Most importantly don't forget to tell him to bless you after he has forgiven you.

After that tell him of your plans to move out as soon as possible.

You are very stupid. An insolent idiot. You not only insulted your dad in front of your siblings, you went as far as calling him (your own papa) a BASTARD.

I swear you are a fool.


Wait...did you say you called your dad a bastard? I am beyond shocked. Honestly.

Provoke or not, you don't insult your father. Canceling my words will not change that.

Anger is bad o!!!!

Knowing when to back down when provoked is key. But then, what's done is done. Making amends is next.


Your father is still hurting no doubt. Just give him a little time to cool off.

On your part, let your actions henceforth show you're truly remorseful.

You can better still get a good man he respects to help you plead with him to forgive you.

It'll be fine.

angry I am happy to read that your father has other children, you aren't the only child, the man has hope, cuz you are the black sheep. You called your father a bastardd in front of your siblings, setting bad example. Approach him later and appologise to him, but don't be surprised that things will never be the same again between you and him, you caused it.

A lot of our parents don't listen to their children, that natural superiority wouldn't let them, the thing is most times, parents are guilty of these heated arguments between them and their grown children but since they are the parents, one cannot know more than them, but there's no way you can explain calling your father a bastard in the presence of your siblings, you went too far tbh, let things cool off a bit and then apologize for your words, you are his son, he's going to forgive you

As a parent of older children I can tell you that far worse than the injury is when the child does not apologize.
Go to your father and apologize. Even if he does not accept immediately... You have started the healing process.

It’s spiritual I think. Maybe you aren’t needed on that house anymore or you aren’t happy in that house or you’re supposed to have gone long ago. Make your family happy and leave the house in peace to stay alone. I believe you are an adult already.
Re: Please Help I Need Advice!!! How Do I Ask My Father For Forgiveness From This by ibechris(m): 10:03am On Jun 14
The reason why u had the guts was because u have become a baby adult,hence ur reason for challenging ur father.

My advice:
If u are a man above 23,pls never stay back after graduation or learning of trade of any kind in ur parents abode.

U will accidentally grow wings,such that,it will make u disrespect ur parents easily.

And finally,it will make u less of a man.
Seek for forgiveness as fast as possible. Good luck to u.

Your father failed his duty as a father. For a father to even exchange abusive words with his son shows that lacks respect for himself! And for a son (you) to exchange abusive words with your father shows that you lack both respect and home training.

The Solution is simple, seeks forgiveness with yourself, humble yourself before your father and plead for his mercy. Promise never to disrespect him or any elderly person and live to your promise.

MEANWHILE: Have it at the back of your mind that words said can never be unsaid. Your father will never forget your words

Indeed it wouldn't. Ordinary simple lie I lied to my father aged 9 years old. He made me write "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee", 100 times and I have never ever forgotten to not lie!

He was not even a Christian at the time, the cheeky bugger! I so miss him sometimes.

Exactly.... This generation wants to keep shifting boundaries till we have no morality left again in society. Personally though, I have made up my mind to always call them out no matter whose ox is gored.

This is going to hurt your father for life as much as you will forever live to regret this your action...

You see, there are some lines you dare not cross whenever you having a misunderstanding with your parents.
You can act crazy but try not to say shít!

He will forgive you as a parent. That one is certain but just make it easy for him by packing out of that house real fast and learn to control your anger bro.
