He's My Dad

I get how people have bad relationships with step parents. It can be strange when someone new just takes over a role. Especially so when you biological parents are divorced and your older. It can be less about involving the child in the family and more about the budding relationship between the new couple. What I want to say is that my stepfather (my father) was a part of my life since the day I was born. There are many reasons why my father should not love me and we should not have a great relationship. Primarily his wife (my mother) cheated on him and got pregnant with me. He could have left her, but he raised me as his own and has always been the better more reliable parent. I have always sought his advice and come to him first with news in my life. As I've gotten older it has been more of friendship and he relies on me. He has a biological son (my brother), but I secretly know I am his favorite. I love my Dad.

Aww! It's very fresh to hear this. All I heard about step parents were scary stories of how they mistreat u and stuff, but thank u for sharing the bright side of this matter :)

As a stepfather, I enjoyed this.
