My father & I had a very special relationship, he understood me in a way no one else did, he understood the way I think & the complex reality of living with bi polar.
When he passed in January I was lost, in some ways I still feel lost. This week very lost. Last Sunday was Father’s Day, today is his birthday he would have been 74.
I allow myself to grieve, but I also do not loose myself to it. My father was many things, he was incredibly smart & driven, he was tenacious. As much as I am incredibly emotional today, I refuse to let myself fall.
My father taught me well, he made sure I knew how to be strong, he also made sure I understood how to manage & balance my emotions & reality. When we are full of emotion it is easy to loose a grip on reality.
I know he was proud of me, I will continue to make him proud, make myself proud, most of all teach my daughter how to balance.
Sounds like a great man who left a great legacy😊. It’s good I think to remember all that love and lean into for it will forever remain within to help guide us.
He certainly did for many. It is important to remember, to allow the guidance & strength to remain.
