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.

Well said. We all need to follow our own path and it may not always be what others might expect us to do. But we need to make ourselves happy first. And then everything else falls into place.

I think we understand our fathers more as we get older. Or we appreciate them a whole lot more.

I do agree with you. There is so much to learn and sometimes
it's not fast enough.
