Dad Quotes

I know that in some ways, 
I've disappointed you
And that's why I can't ask you for help anymore. 
You always made me feel stupid, 
you always made me think I could've done better. 
You always told me not to cry,
you said it isn't pretty. 
I know that you're disappointed in me
because I wanted to know who my mother was. 
But just know that, 
I'm disappointed in you, too
For keeping me from finding out. 
Hey, if you're reading this I miss you much
I wish you were here right now to tell me that stupid boy isn't worth my tears. 
I
wish you were here to hold me close and make stupid jokes about how you're gonna shoot him when you see him again. 
I wish you were here right now to comfort me and take me to McDonald's and get me that big dumb junky order of fries, a milkshake, and a double cheeseburger, and then make fun of me for dipping the fries in the milkshake. I wish you were here right now to walk 4 miles in the middle of the night Pokémon hunting with me
I
wish you were here right now to tell me you don't even notice that dumb pimple. 
I wish you were here right now to check up on me every couple of minutes, because I use to get so annoyed. 
I
wish you were with me giving me advice on what the hell I should do right now
I took you for granted, and I miss you much.

There's Something Wrong With Dad
 































 
My father has a tattoo that runs from his shoulder to his elbow on his right side; I never thought anything about it. He works, leaves for weeks at a time but comes back with pockets filled with money and bags filled with gold that he auctions off for thousands. I don't know what he does, but I never thought anything about it because he was able to sustain a suitable lifestyle for us. He had moments of anger yes, but he never abused us; he was a loving father. Even after the death of my mother, his caring character helped us move forward, and his idea of moving to a new hometown was for the best of our sanity. However, I could not help but notice the cold poisonous stare he would often give to my sister, and his brief moments of violence that he had trouble controlling. When I watched him beat a robber to an unidentifiable creature, grabbing his gun and continuously shooting him until there was nothing more than brain residue splattered all over the floor, those words in red flashed across my mind; There's something wrong with dad. I love him so much, but I can't help to think that he had something to do with the death of my mother. And I'm scared he's going to do it again. But to one of us.

i. Always put your best effort forward, and when that’s not enough, keep trying. Strong fathers teach their daughters that hard work is never easy; it is exhausting; it is demanding; it is all-encompassing, but he teaches her that effort is rewarding, even if it isn’t tangible. Her determination is relentless, and she gets it from her father.
ii. Be able to stand on your own. A strong father teaches his strong daughter to rely on herself first. She’s learned that independence is a wonderful thing to have, but she’s also learned that needing help is not a weakness, and asking for it demonstrates strength. She can stand on her own, but she has the ability to lean on others when her own balance fails her.
iii. It’s okay to fail. She knows the expense of expectation when it comes to being raised by a strong father, but she knows that occasional failure is not only acceptable, it’s inevitable. Failure is a side effect of trying, and strong daughters are not contained by the fear of failure. She sees failure as an opportunity to try again because her father has taught her to do so.
iv. Respect yourself. He teaches his daughter to respect her body, her mind, her thoughts, her instincts. He teaches her to respect herself enough to walk away from those who hurt her, to accept the love he has shown her she deserves, and she does.
v. Believe in yourself. He tells her that her dreams are valid, and to not let anyone make her feel otherwise. He tells her to believe in herself the way he believes in her. Strong fathers know that their daughters can achieve anything they set their mind to.
vi. Place your happiness first. He teaches her that loving yourself is not selfish, it’s necessary. He tells her to find happiness within herself before she goes searching for it everywhere else. Because all the outer places she finds happiness may lead to disappointment, but no one can take away the happiness she alone creates, and this is the kind of happiness that she should share with others. He teaches her that this is the kind of happiness that lasts.
vii. You will always be loved. There are more kinds of love than romantic love, stronger kinds. The bond a strong daughter and father share endures. When her heart feels broken or she feels undeserving of love, he reassures her she’s surrounded by it every day.
viii. Relationships take work, all kinds: platonic, romantic, familial. He teaches her that not everyone will always agree with her. There will be arguments, grudges, times when communication and understanding is flawed, but the important relationships, the ones that matter, the ones with people who love her, people who want the best for her, are worth every bit of effort she puts into them.
ix. Trust your gut; your instinct is important. She knows when to listen to the inner voice telling her something’s not right. She knows how to trust herself, and her intuition. A strong father teaches his daughter that her feelings aren’t wrong, or illegitimate, they’re indicative of her ability to understand herself, her wants, her needs, her fears, her aspirations, everything in life that matters to her.
x. Always take pride in your accomplishments. She knows humility, but she is proud of every success she’s ever had, and she won’t let anyone take that away from her. He teaches her to own her intelligence, to not let others undermine it. He teaches her to expose her strengths and never dim them.
xi. Know your father’s love will always be with you. A strong father teaches his daughter that his love is eternal. His love gives her strength. A strong daughter always carries her father’s love with her.
— Things Strong Fathers Teach Their Daughters






It's alright to cry
even my dad does sometimes
So don't wipe your eyes
tears remind you you're alive

Dear Diary,

Remember that day when I told you Dad left us? Remember all the times I wrote about trying to find him with Mom? Remember how I told you Mom was leaving the house more and more frequently and I didn't know why?

I know now.

Today, I found out that Mom was going to the public executions. Today, she took me to one. It was of the Queen, today's execution. On the way, Mom told me all about the hangings, but when we got there, the Queen was being beheaded. It was awful. 

People started praying for her when she was about to die, Diary. But Mom didn't. Then, she was beheaded.

You know, as we were leaving, Mom and I passed by the executioner. He was wearing a mask, but I still saw his eyes. They were exactly like Dad's. I tried talking to Mom about it, but she didn't say a word.

They've haunted me ever since; his eyes. I'm going to try to sleep again, so goodbye Diary. I just hope I don't dream about him.

 
Eliza


Inspired by The Executioner's Daughter


I'm so glad that my dad and I afinally starting to get close to each other, and yet it only took 17 years. I used to always think that we would never have that perfect father daughter relationship like every girl does. And now I'm really thinking that we might and there's nothing else in the worl to make me this happy.
Well, I'm sorry, but is not my fault to exist.
