Parental alienation long long ago

As a child I suffered under parental alienation, only now I realise it,( I am 49 ).I feel very very angry with my father that under his manipulations I rejected my mom: after their divorce I stayed with him and his second wife. I disappointed my mom very much. How can I tell my father about my new insight and not hurt him (he is alive, but my mom not). Sometimes I feel like wanting a revanche.

You're an adult, he's an adult. Tell him that you don't appreciate the way that your relationship with your mother was treated, but that you understand that it cannot be changed now.

I would just go straight ahead and tell him what you need to say, if he loves you enough he will understand, I would be more worried if he takes really bad, as that to me would show that he may not love you as much as you think.
I hope your father understands and doesn't get angry.

This 9 year old is dealing with sibling alienation

Sometimes we forget the intense pain siblings go through being alienated!
