My relationship with my parents has always been a little weird... my mother and I dont get along and it cant be repaird. My dad is always the one I turn to when something is wrong, when I need help, or support. He isnt around alot, he travels around the world, and he tends to be a bit..I dont know the word. He is very supportive of me, and loves me alot, but he can be very stern and try to remove his emotions from the situation. Hes a buisness man and acts like it in his personal life as well. For instance when I told him I was pregnant I was crying and crying so hard, and I went to lay my head on his shoulder and I just wanted him to hold me and make it better but he seemed really akward with it. However he has been the most supportive person of my pregnancy, and tonight he did something that made me so happy. I sent him a very long email ( I find it alot easier to write when Im upset, I dont do phone conversations or in person well at all so we communicate by email alot) and I was expecting him to tell me maybe I should talk to a counclir about how I am feeling, or lecture me on how I need to be doing more. Instead he read the whole thing, and emailed me back with a little joke to cheer me up, told me he knows im being serious and that he wants to take me out to coffee so we can talk about whats going on in my life, and that he has some ideas to help me out with the problems im having, then ended by saying he loves me very much and that he hopes I have a good night.
It was just what I needed, to know that he can be a dad, no matter how buisness like and official he can sometimes be, and that in the end I can always count on him to be there for me. I really couldnt have taken someone lecturing me tonight, Ive been crying all day, and he just made it all better. Im really glad I have him in my life.
