  1. Great piece! You are not alone on this one! Glad you’ve come to the realisation that he probably loved you the best way he knew how! Well done❤️

  2. Thank you for sharing your story Adaugo.
    Talking about childhood is a good place to start when searching for emotional healing.. Our lives begin to shape from birth and can have a great impact on our mind and emotions.. From self esteem to relationships we choose.. Even weight issues can arise from penned up emotions.. I pray that somehow God can open a door for you and your father to talk about your feelings.. Sometimes fathers use an iron rod to show their love, since they were likely raised that way also.. Children tend to love the softer parent, over the disciplinarian.. but correction without love leaves a child feeling they can never do anything right, and are never good enough even in adulthood.. I believe sorting through the relationship with your father can have a positive impact in your emotional health.. but that is just my opinion.. Sorry to ramble.. 🙂

    1. Oh Mary! Thanks so much. Honestly I don’t know if we can make it work because right now he is sick and his memory isn’t what it used to be but hey! There’s life so there’s hope right? How have you been? I hope all is well with you?

      1. Amen, we always have hope.. God can always change a situation..
        Could you ask his doctor if he could try spirulina? It is a blue green algae and they claim it helps people with Alzheimer’s.. But it has to be from a trusted company.. because it can be unsafe if it is contaminated..
        Coconut oil is another great memory booster.. Working up to 5 TBS a day, works for some.
        I have been blessed, thank you for asking.
        I pray you are well also.

    I can imagine what it took you to write this post babe.
    Growing up I knew my parents loved me, but always wondered why our relationship felt strained, mechanical…. I think it’s was the way our parent-children ‘culture’ was.
    It’s changing these days.
