Me to dad “how many times do I have to start over?” Dad to me “Everytime”. Me to dad “I can’t do this any longer”. Dad to me “you are not down until you stay down. Get up. Keep getting up”.
These words of wisdom from my dad made me strong. They empowered me. They made me independent. They were words necessary for my survival. My dad had to learn these things without the advise and encouragement from someone who cared about him. My dad was the strongest, wisest, and most compassionate person I have ever known. He is gone now and I still need him. @Riley_45
