This is a comment by Brendan on the post “14 Ways to Demonstrate ‘I Love You’ to Your Son“.
“This is great, such a touching article. I’m only 18 but just thinking of each of these tips critically, I feel like I’ve taken my father for granted. I’m selfish, always complaining, ‘Why does it have to be what you want to do? Why don’t we do something I want to do!?’
“Reading this from a different perspective has showed me how hard my father tried to bond with me and how much I pushed him away. I thought he didn’t know better but in actuality, he knew/knows more than I ever will. Luckily for me, he’s still young (but of course getting older as the years go, as I grow too) and I still have time to make up for my ways. Thank you for this!”
