Tonight I called my dad just to talk. I talked to him about everything that has been worrying me and everything that has been going on, even though he has heard it 1000 times before. It was really great to talk to him. I have always been what you would call a daddy's girl, and tonight's talk is one of the many reasons why.
Tonight after talking to him for awhile and being in tears over the family drama I was talking about, he said something to me that really hit me. He said "You are strong". He continued to tell me why I am strong and what I have done recently and throughout my life that make me strong. And you know what? It was exactly what I needed to hear.
I have been feeling like giving up on some things recently. I don't want to go into much detail about my person life, but there have been things throughout my whole life that I have put a stop to recently. It involves stopping speaking to a particular person and this was not well received throughout my family. Because of this, I have become an outcast and have considered giving up on said person and cutting my losses.
My dad said "you are strong" because I have endured this and continue to do so. Because I keep trying and wishing and hoping that things will change, even if I know that it can never be the way it used to be. He will support me in any decision I make and even if I do choose to give up, he will still support me and still tell me I am strong.
Do you have somebody who always says the right thing? Do you have somebody who can make you feel better about everything? Those 3 words were all I needed to hear.
