Thanks Dad,

You taught me how to parent because you sucked so much.

    I am often told that I am a great mom, I tell people I just did the opposite of my parents,I believe we need both good and bad examples to learn from.there is truth to the saying “you are always teaching”. And from the lessons my bad parents taught I learned to be a better mom, and a better person. good for you for seeing that in yourself. This is how I have changed the world. It may be a small thing, but I have sent 5 people into the world, better than me and I am so proud of them.

    I “cared” for my daughters more than I was able to show because of my own upbringing, fears, insecurities and all the other baggage people carry. What is truly sad is I know I sucked and they will never know how often I cried because of my knowledge that my upbringing, fears, insecurities, and baggage prevented me from truly saying how much I loved them.

    This could be my post…sadly, my dad would never call me buttercup because he’s too afraid my stepmother would get upset. He’s so weak….feel sorry for HIM now because he lives in a jail-like state and has with this woman for most of my not-being-a-daddy’s-girl life. The therapy I paid so much money for regarding my dad’s non-attention of me was nothing compared to getting brave enough to tell him exactly how I felt. If anyone else feels this way, don’t wait the 38 years I did. It’s pure freedom!!
