Happy Father’s Day.
My relationship with you at the moment is absent. We are not in contact. I miss you, but it is okay. I must admit that I do sometimes still feel a void in my heart. A missing, but no longer a deep longing for fatherly love. I have peace with how it is. All is well and blessed.
You have been a great teacher for me in compassion and letting be. Letting go of wanting to be seen and to strive for recognition and love. Love just is and should not be earned or achieved. I am love and I no longer feel I have failed you and am proud of who I am. How you see me or your disappointment in me, doesn’t touch me anymore. I feel no anger, not even disappointment. I do sometimes feel grief for what was and what could’ve been, a little stab of pain in my heart. But I happily remember the good times now, because we did have fun together as well, didn’t we?! We shared a lot, a lot of joy, but also sorrow. It was time to let each other go our own ways and live our own lives. I no longer feel abandoned and unsupported. I feel whole and perfect as I am. And so are you. I hope you feel and know that. Be you and be true.
Dad, I am grateful for your role in my life. I believe I came to this world to teach self-reliance and I could not have had better training than the need to take care of myself. I learned to find my way on the path I was meant to take, and since then I’ve been blessed with the privilege of helping others do the same. I set myself free to live a life of ever-expanding joy and compassion. I wish you the same.
I love you.
