What I Learned In My Father’s Absence

Hi there,

In today’s podcast, I share how my father’s absence was pivotal in showing me who I didn’t want to be and leading me to who I am. I don’t consider myself a fatherless daughter because I turned to my Father, my Creator and the Creator of humankind in my father’s absence. As I’ve stated, nothing an adult does is a child’s fault. Memories don’t have to bring anger, doubt, guilt, resentment, shame, or vengeance. You can create the family you want by remembering what you don’t want.

Make this lifetime great because you can!


Do you give the same advice you give to your best friend? If your best friend said she was dirty, stupid, and unworthy, what would you tell her and why? Would you affirm his thoughts if your male best friend voiced the same descriptions?   The love we feel and express comes from the inside first.  How can you become your best friend? For one, you can choose to love yourself no matter your experiences. You choose your consistent thoughts and spoken words.  You believe you deserve respect. You speak your truth and feel obligated to do so.  You are patient with yourself and realize growth is a process. You teach others by example how you want them to treat you and are consistent as much as possible. You challenge harmful words with the truth. You realize that you are a magnificent creation, and nothing can change that. Thanks for listening and commenting! Timika
