This self-absorbed womanizer is my narcissistic father. And many of us have them.
I went to pack our things and caught my mom ruffling through my toiletries bag. (Artwork: Tess Emily Rodriguez)
When we got home my wife was unpacking our bags and noticed the condoms we keep in the toiletries bag looked weird.
My own father was, and still is an alcoholic, and is no longer a part of my life. Although he was never violent, his alcoholism still deeply affected and damaged our family, and me.
