How to Cope With Mixed Emotions On Father’s Day (Feature)

To be honest, this was one of the most difficult articles for me to write. I’m grateful to Iridescent Women for giving me a platform to share my experiences and offer hope to others. Here is an excerpt from my newest guest article:

“I still remember my first Father’s Day without my dad. It was a few months after he decided to walk out on my mother, sister, and I. To say that I was hurt would be an understatement. I agonized over the fact that I wouldn’t be able to make him breakfast, see him smile as I handed him my heartfelt card, and receive a hug after he read every word. Despite not having my father in my life, I know that I’m not the only one who has a tough relationship with their dad. While Father’s Day may be a momentous occasion for some, for others, Father’s Day brings mixed emotions as we mourn the loss of our fathers in our lives. Although these feelings of grief, doubt, rage, and dismay might cause us to resent the significance of Father’s Day, I want to let you know that those emotions are okay.”
