    My Role Model

    Long story short, he never gave up on me through all my struggles. Heroin addiction, self harm, anorexia. He stayed strong and it helped me grow and recover to become the person I am today. Even when we were homeless, he stood by my mom and I and fought for everything we have...

    My father is a very smart man.

    He taught me how to deal with people. Last night my dad told me to play along with peoples games and then they will play with you. My daddy's advice worked like a charm. Thanks dad

    My dad was always closest to me.

    He was a freak. And that's why I liked him. He was unique and wouldn't let my nagging mother change him. He understood me. He would always take me to the park and we'd go on fishing and camping. Just the two of us...it was one of the very very very few happy times I've ever had...

    Definitely a huge role model,

    i think those 99% bad guys should definitely be someone like my dad. He always knows what to say and never once has he made me thought otherwise about him. If i wanted to depend on him 101% he would be fine with it. He's my life savor

    where he's showing us (my family and two of his friends) this new bed frame and mattress he got. As he's explaining how comfortable and cheap it was, my dad comes in and asks "did you break this?"(it was a birthday present from a year ago, expensive glass thing). My uncle is...

    I honestly love my dad

    so much. I have been a daddy's girl for as long as I remember. He took on being a single parent for two kids, and he deserves everything his heart desires for it. I've seen him at work and I never knew how other people treat him as though he is socially awkward.. It makes me...

    I really look up to my dad.

    He is the most humble person I've ever seen. Our relationship really goes well but we don't often show how much we love each other bcs we don't need to. We know, and we can feel it. I don't often tell him how much I love him but he knows. I know. Just recently i found out he has...

    Not Really My Dad But

    I would have to say the one I look up to and have tried to follow what he taught me would have to be my GF / young wife's grandfather. He taught me how to be a real man how to treat people and that the only thing we have in this world when it all ends is how we have lived our...
