I Admire My Father

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,103 People

    I have always admired my father.

    I have always been a daddy's girl. I would go to church with him even if there wasn't a service considering he was a preacher. I'd just kind of sit and watch him in his office. My father has always been a kind, goofy man. I guess that's where I got my sense of humor. He knows...

    Always True To Himself

    My father was probably the most optimistic person ive ever been loved by, his dreams shattered by a cruel reality. I believe it is possible my dad had Aspergers, he was brilliant with math and music... could solve any equation even after not being in school or working with...

    My dad is single-handedly keeping my mother's

    parents' medical affairs in check as well as guiding my mother through her various speech problems and what I think is PTSD and depression. I really hope that I can be as patient, strong, and loving as he is someday.

    Mr. Mom

    My father was 63 when he adopted me when I was 2 months old. His wife had already passed so he raised me alone. Through the years he taught me many valuable lessons. The biggest one to me is that he taught me to learn at least a little bit about everything. This has come in handy...

    I have the best dad in the world.

    He's not always around because he has to work a lot, but whenever I need him he immediately stops what he's doing to come and be with me. I love him

    My Beloved Daddy

    People ask me, "How could you love a man like that? He was drunk more often than he was sober. How could you.." and on, and on, and on. Well, skunk-drunk or blood-sober, my daddy was my daddy. I endured his boozy episodes for the sake of my mother and her general health. For...

    My father taught me everything.

    He taught me there are no limits. He taught me to rely on my own brain and instincts, never to rely on others and technology first, but to trust my own judgement first. He taught me to take care of myself and how to survive, not to have to depend on others to take care of me...
