Depending on who you ask…
Your father is either the superhero that you always wanted to be like.
Or the supervillain that you swore never to become.
Because growing up our father was one of these:
- Our first protector
- Our first harsh critic
- Or our first absent heartbreak
Only when we become fathers do we realize the struggles of dads. Experience firsthand the challenges of balancing family, career, and personal life.
Realizing all of the battles he may have been fighting. And starting to understand the choices he made, the emotions he felt, and the challenges he faced.
Now let me give you some hard truth…
There’s a reason why they say
“You’re just like your father.”
Because regardless of whether he was your role model or your cautionary tale his influence is deeply ingrained in who you are today.
And it’s either a badge of honor that you proudly wear.
Or a scar that you try to hide away.
Either way, what matters is the decisions you make today to move forward.
Because as fathers our main goal should not only be to raise our children to be like us.
BUT to be better than us.
And the only way we can do that is by:
Choosing to repeat the cycle…
…or break it.
But no matter the route you take, remember this…
Every day you’re writing in the chapters of a story your kids will tell one day.
Make sure you make each one a damn good one.
P.S. If you’re looking to add a story worth telling for you and your son then you might want to join us at the next Squire class.
This is one chapter you and your son will be talking about for a lifetime.
