Dear father,

Today I want to tell you those three words ... “I forgive you.” I forgive you for being a father but failed to be a dad, my super hero. I forgive you for not being there for me when I needed you the most. I forgive you for not picking me up when I fell into the pit of depression. I forgive you for not reminding me that I am beautiful and awesome and capable of something great. I forgive you for not being my friend. I forgive you for breaking my heart before any boy had the chance to. I forgive you for your absence in my hard times. I forgive you for not teaching me what to expect from a man. I forgive you for not being the first influential man in my life. I forgive you for the scars on my heart. I forgive you for making my mom cry. I forgive you for not spending a quality time with us. I forgive you for not being the greatest weekend dad . I forgive you for not prioritizing family. I forgive you for not making me confident, self full person. I forgive you for not hearing my cry. I forgive you for letting me fight battle with self doubt. I forgive you for not letting me know how a woman has to be treated. I forgive you for not being my world. I forgive you for not loving me enough that I had to go in search of it and get hurt. “I forgive you.”
