What does being a father mean to you?
Being a father means LIFE to me. I was created to be one. A natural born leader of my own creations. I was blessed at an early age of 20 to start my journey of fatherhood and I’ve loved it since!
Describe your experience with your father growing up and how that impacted you today.
Father?!! I wish I could describe an experience with him..lol My birth father ain’t Shit. (Excuse my language) He wasn’t around but my blood uncle stepped up and raised me since I was 3weeks old so that’s my father and I can talk about him all day. But to sum it up he is who help mold me into the man I am today!
What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?
Growing up without my birth father or mother actually active in my life made me into an angry kid. Behavior issues and all. But I used my anger and put it into more positive outlets like Art, Music and Sports. I knew I didn’t wanna be who my father or mother was. I always wanted to be better! When I became a father I fought those demons off because of the pure natural love I have for my kids. I never understood how some humans don’t have that for the life they create.
Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?
I mean the only obstacles I had were my kids mothers! Lol. But what real father doesn’t?. Lmao
What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?
Be a man, Be a King. Take care of your responsibilities as Man, as King. Never let anyone tear you down no matter what you go thru. Be only the best father you can be in the eyes of your kids, the life you create. That’s who matters most. Oh and be careful who you create that life with, trust me. All women aren’t meant to be mothers , you’ll thank me later! Stay true Kings!
If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?
Dear Birth Father, Do better, Be better. Not for me , your kids, or grandkids, But For Yourself! No love lost, Just no love found! & Dear Father that raised me, Thank you for your unconditional love, protection , and discipline. I am who i am because of your guidance and I will always appreciate everything and carry your wisdom with honor, King!
