Why I Hated Father’s Day by Rodney Robertson


Most guys on this journey don’t talk about this. They suppress their feelings and keep them in like secrets in a vault.

They want to be their wife’s hero and forget about the Clark Kent side that exists within. They hide behind a smile and strength; however, the pain within their hearts is weakening them.

I didn’t hate Father’s Day because I had a terrible dad. My dad is a good dad and I‘m thankful that he’s still here.

I didn’t hate Father’s Day because I didn’t have male emotional support. My dad, grandfathers, uncles, and cousins love me. For some, I think that I am their favorite…LOL

I know it may shock you, but there are some guys who also dream of being a father. At a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a dad. I had a dream of becoming a father. I looked forward to seeing a little mini-me who had my DNA.

So I had this dream, but what was going on in our lives wasn’t matching the dream. Every year that Father’s Day came around I was thankful for my dad. However, I secretly hated Father’s Day because it was another reminder that I wasn’t a dad yet.

Until about three years ago on Father’s Day, I would sit in my office and weep before going out to preach to my congregation about God being a good Father, but yet I wasn’t a father yet. I am honored to be a spiritual father and coach to many; however, it doesn’t replace my dream to be a biological father.

I‘m better. I don’t weep on Father’s Day anymore. I don’t hate the day as much…LOL I‘m making progress and I choose to stay in peace and my trust is still in God.
