On this special day, I woke up fairly early around 4:00 AM and reflected upon to the fact that being a father is easy – get marry and have kids. Or, just have kids :). But, being a “good” father probably is not. First, how we define “good”? In what sense? How to measure it? There are a lot of important things which are not measurable by any means.
The only person that I can compare to is my father. As I remember, he is a very strict person with bad temper. In my mind, he is very hard to deal with. Or, even talk to. But, I never loss the fact that, in his heart, he would like all of us (8 total) to excel, even though his methods are much debatable. In short, a man with good intention but with very limited bad approaches. Even with all these, I still think my father is a father that just trying to do his best with good intentions. With all these years passing-by, I know that my father loves us but just doesn’t know how to deliver it. But as “how to deliver”, that doesn’t matter to me too much after I grow up.
Now, am I better than my father? Probably, not. I just follow his steps to do what I think it is the best of being a “good” father. That is all. No one really knows, even myself.
Again, Happy Father’s Day.
