The truth is , being a Dad, a parent , etc... Is an imperfect process with imperfect beings and imperfect love... Making the effort to get it all 'right'... Full disclosure... I suck at a lot of this stuff. I'm not as patient as I'd like to be. I'm more controlling than I ever realized. I can be harder than I actually want. I struggle between properly disciplining, and wanting to be liked... This Daddy thing can be difficult and is a struggle at times. That's my truth, and a far too unspoken truth for many.
I am realizing lately that it is all the little moment, all the incremental steps, all the smaller aspects, that make up the grander version of what we truly want.
Everyone takes L's (losses)sometimes... but that L can be so much more than just a loss, as long as you're able to take away the Lessons behind it.
