American Singer, Alicia Keys

Famous American singer, Alicia Keys posted a letter when she was a teenager that she wrote to her odd father.

The singer posted on her Instagram handle on Wednesday how her father abandoned her and her mother without any sort of support in the letter, handwritten and dated October 7, 1994.

She wrote;

“For all thy years I have lived, I have watched you take care of everybody except me. I was your first born (as far as I know) and you treat me like I was never born.

“But I don’t care much about that either. What hurts me now is that me and my mother struggle and you can’t even help her a little bit…

“While you are siting there not giving moral support l, not even something as little as your love. There is nothing you could ever do to heal the wounds”.

She told her father in the letter she wrote that the only way to make her happy is to stay away.

She posted reading the letter in a video, and wrote, "It is Insane that after all these years he kept this letter. When He first introduced me, I was so surprised. It was tucked away in a memory-filled shoe box. I 'm glad he and now I can look back on it as a sign of how far we have come.

The singer confirmed she has moved on from their relationship.

“Regardless though, most of the time the healing comes from letting go.”

I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share this excerpt with you from #MoreMyself… ⁣ ⁣ In the early part of my teens I wrote this letter to my father, Craig. I wanted nothing to do with him. My words came from a place of vulnerability and longing. At the time it hurt so much to experience what felt like empty promises. I swore I didn’t care, but I did and it affected me deeply. I finally had enough and wrote those words.  It’s CRAZY that he kept this letter after all these years. I was so shocked when he first showed me. It was tucked away in a shoe box full of memories. I’m glad he and I can look back at it now as a sign of how far we’ve come ✨🙏🏽⁣ ⁣ If you feel moved to share, send me a deep relationship that you have had to remove from your life, or one that has been mended, or that you want to see evolve, or are working on changing. ⁣ ⁣ I think it’s so powerful that relationships have their own path. And sometimes they are meant to heal…. ⁣ ⁣ Regardless though, most of the time the healing comes from letting go. ⁣ ⁣ What are your thoughts?⁣ ⁣ Sending u my love, light and strength #moremyself #cheerstotheevolution 🥂 🥂 ⁣ ⁣ More Myself is available now.
