When things started to get really bad with COVID-19, my dad left. Just straight up left the family. Not at all related to the virus, just said that he was unhappy and that he was done.
On one hand, it's horrible. My sister and I are heartbroken, and the abandonment feels are big; my mom is falling apart. But on the other hand, I feel like my lifelong suspicions of him being a complete asshole have been confirmed. I was right all along. It's nothing to gloat about, but at least I know that my intuition is strong.
