It’s Father’s Day. Even though I am a Father, I can’t get excited about Father’s Day because my father was and is an absolutely abysmal father. For those of us who have had Mothers and/or Fathers like him, these “special days” are little more than reminders of how broken one or more of our parents were. I love that people post moving tributes to their fathers on social media on this day because it reminds me that the institution of parenting isn’t a complete disaster. I’d also appreciate it if we would remember this day all of those people still struggling to come to terms with their own parents’ negative impact on their lives. It’s true that everybody does the best they can, but some people’s best produces some pretty deep wounds. If you are one of those people, know that I stand with you today and you are not alone.
