Throughout the years I’ve had very little to no contact with my father. The last 7 years I’ve held some sort of grudge and misplaced anger that made me refuse to talk to my father.
This year I started to see that I have the same characteristics and actually do things like my father would. It made me realise we are connected in a certain way. We are all human and we all have our struggles to deal with. I accepted that and made the decision to contact my father again. And it feels right. We can laugh about the things we do identically and how we react to certain events (without knowing).
What I see in him, lives inside of me and vice versa. When you realise who you are and where you come from, that’s when you accept yourself for who you are.
