Welcome to this episode of Friday Reflections by Dad.Work!
Every Friday I share the best of what we have been doing in the Dad.Work community, to provide perspective, new ideas, and motivation for you to continue on your journey to becoming the best man, partner, and father you can be.
Today I’ll talk about the potential of forgiving your own father. I understand that this topic is a trigger to some of y’all and it is okay, because not everyone is ready. In this episode, you’ll learn that forgiveness is not about the person you forgive but it’s entirely about you and your healing journey.
We’ll talk about:
- Being able to not avoid feeling the anger by ignoring the real hurt and rejecting your own needs.
- Exploring your relationship with your father and healing any wounds he left, either intentionally or unintentionally, in order to prevent it from being passed down to our children.
- Grieving in order to be able to let go of the wounded inner-child within
- Being able to consider and accept that your own father may have been a hurt little boy at one point in his life, and that his hurt may have projected itself in your upbringing. (which is not an excuse)
- Being able to express all your pain to your father in order to be able to forgive
- Why it’s critical to join a men’s group as part of your healing journey
