Today being Father’s day, some reflections on fatherhood. I think people go through different stages on how they view their dad.
Admiration ( 0 – teen years) : Your dad is a superhero. He can lift you up (just imagine another human being able to lift you up, throw you in the air and then catch you safely :-).. mindblowing!!). He can apparently conjure ice cream at will. You feel safe in his embrace. He is superman!
Respect (teen – having a kid of their own) : By the time you are in your teens, you are probably stronger than your dad :). Your admiration turns to respect. Your dad is the guy that is always their despite not getting anything in return.
Love (After having kids of their own) : You understand what it means to be responsible for another human being!! All that admiration and respect turns to love ❤️
