He's the reason for everything I am and everything I'm not.
Here's how I stopped the cycle and honor him on #FathersDay and everyday
She never spoke ill of my father.
She did her best to make sure that my father's failures did not impact me.
This allowed me to see that my father's issues were his own and not about me
How I look
My sense of humor
My calm demeanor
The pursuit of comfort over challenges
I believe my life proves that he could have made different choices. He could have changed and hope he sees that.
"If you are going to blame people for all the shit, you better blame them for all the good too."
My father is the reason for everything I am and everything I'm not.
I try to be the man he was and never was.
I take care of my health.
I haven't had a drink in over 4 years.
I will fight to the death to keep my family whole and strong. My children will grow up with their father in their lives.
The fact that the last 12 years of his life he was completely sober because of a letter my mom told me to write to him.
I remember laughing at the same jokes.
It's all because of you 🙏
Happy Father's Day Dad
