If Father’s Day leaves you feeling lonely and reminds you of what you do not have, you are not alone. Remember who and what you do have, and know that “fathers” don’t have to be biological and they don’t have to be men.
It’s different when you meet that guy or girl that you think you might love, and your dad isn’t there to put the fear of God in them should they ever break your heart. And to remind them, semi-jokingly, that he has a gun.
I hope he has a family and a daughter of his own one day. I hope he gets that opportunity I didn’t have to teach his daughter all those important lessons I didn’t get to teach mine.
Only the good die young is what they say. I don’t think anything could be more truthful.
This year, I won’t be able to send him a text to tell him how much he means to me.
I bet you’re expecting a letter filled with hate and blame, but that’s not what this is.
I wish I could tell you that my biggest fear is marrying someone just like you and not realizing it until it’s too late.
A good man doesn’t take and expect, he gives back more than he receives. He doesn’t think that showing emotions is a weakness, he appreciates openness and vulnerability.
When your Dad dies, a really big part of your Mom will go, too. She might feel incomplete. There will be a huge piece of her that is missing. A piece that you can’t ever, ever replace. And it will absolutely break your heart.
I don’t feel normal and I don’t feel like I’ve cried like other people have, what’s wrong with me? Did he really prepare me that well that I am maybe okay with him not being here or am I just completely avoiding the whole subject and choosing not to feel these emotions, I’m frightened for when it will actually hit me or will it ever?
