What does being a father mean to you?
What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?
Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?
The biggest obstacle I’ve faced as a father is separating with three of my kids, mother. Unfortunately in life nothing is guaranteed. I would never assume that people have kids with people to not be with them, creating “broken homes” but everybody grows differently and when there’s kids involved there is a big adjustment. When a father is used to waking up with his kids every morning and in most cases the children stay with mom, it’s something still till this day, I’ve never gotten used to, rather learn to adjust the best I can.
What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?
Understand that cliché statements like “it’s not about you anymore “are 100% correct. Those little Lifes that you create are sponges that only know “normal” as what you show them. Let that drive you to push yourself to be the best version of you that you can be for your self number one, and then to reciprocate that to your children and family.
If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?
Nothing. I’m a firm believer in energy, and certain people don’t deserve mine.
