shoutout out to all my buddies who have shitty dads or no dads at all this father’s day, you turned out just great regardless, you can’t choose your family and you don’t deserve any negativity from them,and you don’t deserve backlash or guilt-tripping for cutting them out of your life if that’s what you need/ed to do and i love you all
Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you.
Every year that goes by, fathers day changes for me. I get more and more scared that my dad wont be around forever, seeing me get married or have babies. Maybe he wont be around to be the amazing grandpa I know he’ll be. You never know. As I get older I get more and more scared of time running out. I think about my grandpa who has been gone for over 10 years now. I think about what he has missed as a father and grandfather. My heart breaks over and over thinking about the wise words, adventures and support I’ve missed out on. I think about my uncle who passed away when I was nearly two. I think about the aunt I would’ve had and the possible cousins, rather than just a missing presences. I think about what would have come along with it all.
I have been lucky to have a high calibre of men in my life and Im extremely grateful.
