“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!”
~ Rudyard Kipling
These wise words by by the famous poet Rudyard Kipling may sound soothing, but what’s worth noticing are the pious and quintessential efforts that a father has put in for his child. And that’s something , apparently every father does for his kid.
To the girls and guys out there, remember when he did all those magic tricks to entertain you during your childhood days? The times when he would, just like a superhero, do those super unimaginable things which were impossible for you then!
Years may have passed, he may not do those things, but look in to his eyes! You will see the same spark of doing those unimaginable things to make your life more comfortable at this age, which again might be impossible for you at this age.
Every girl’s first love
Remember the time he brought you your favorite Barbie doll, or your dress while he was going through an acute money crunch?
Maybe you were too little to know, maybe he won’t ever mention this, because for him your smile meant a million dollars and not those few unaffordable bucks that time!
Boy’s best friend
Be it the bicycling lessons or tips about how to crack the interviews, the scolding at some point or staying in discipline. Every sentence sings of his love and care. He notices everything, the way you are maturing and taking up the responsibilities of the family. Believe me, this makes him proud. So keep in mind stay loyal and take good and mature decisions. He sees his reflection in you.
Say to him that you love him!
Why flatter only moms now and then? Just tell him too that you love him. Although love always cannot be expressed through words, but once a while texting him, asking him about his health, sending him flowers, greeting cards will add to his day, keep him ultimately happy. The only thing that must be taken care of is, it shouldn’t be made a formality. Be genuine.
Don’t be scared !
There comes a period when often the opinions do not match. And that is normal, happens at every home. But many times, children stop conversing with their fathers. This is the worst you can ever do!
The only way out is to understand their view-point and explain your’s calmly. And for sure a way will come out.
But not talking will only worsen the condition. Trust me, he waited like hell to hear you speak for the first time. Don’t burden him more. He is your DAD.
For once just go to him and lay your head on his lap. Heaven is only here. Say that you love him, look into his eyes. He is living for you. Your PAA.
