Happy Father's Day--Heart to Heart
Hi Dad, it's me....
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate and love you. There were times when you didn't understand me or my actions ,nor did I understand myself. As I get older and wiser I think that everything will be alright. I haven't forgotten a word you said.
Just letting me be me will be easier on both of us. I know you want me to be a certain way, but we all have to travel a path in life until we realize which is the right one. When we make a mistake then we know we are on the wrong path and a change has to come. I know you don't want me to make any mistakes.
It may seem as though I am not following the right path but each of us have to find out what is right for us and what is the wrong path or a better path. Sure, you might say "I told you, you should do this or that" which was true, even so one must make a mistake in order to come to the conclusion of changing things.
I do love you and respect you and I know eventually we will meet at the crossroads of understanding.
