This is going to be an odd thing to conclusively “do”. My dad IS proud of me, as far as it goes. Unlike everyone else (literally, everyone older than me) on my mother’s side of the family, I have not been to jail, I do not have illegal habits or small children, and I’m not leeching off the government because I don’t have the will to get off my ass and work.
But I still feel like I want to make him proud. I want to put everything I can towards doing one thing that will make him say he’s proud of me. I’m just not sure what that is quite yet. 18 months ago
I want to make my dad see that I can lose weight and be his skinny little girl again because I know that when he looks at me now all he can see is how fat I’ve gotten and it only makes me hate myself more. By february 10th I want to have lost at least 25 pounds. My ideal goal would be to lose around 35 pounds, but either way I just want him to know that I am trying. 2 years ago

Me and my dad have always had a difficult realtionship, ever since i was little, i think I have dissapointed him a lil and that makes him unhappy, i have acted selfishly and being stupid a little in taking choices , he is hard on me sometimes and sometimes i dont deserve it and sometimes it makes me very unhappy knowing that i make him unhappy, but this year is going to be different, I thought to myself, i have the power to make him happy and make myself happy, he is right on a lot of things I just dont listen, i can make things better and make him proud, coz i love him sooo much, it makes things easier in the house and our relationship is better, I’m going to get into uni and get a job and make him sooo proud,Today was the starting point, I got a pass in my Maths Excams and he picked me up and twirled me across the room, he was smiling and it made me sooooo happy, I love him and this year is going to be great for us. xx 5 years ago

My dad passed away a couple of weeks after I graduated from college. I view my life (and I think my brothers and sister feel the same way) as his legacy, and try to carry on some of the things that were important to him.
I love you, Dad. 6 years ago
