The Gift 

I have experienced rejection at an epic level. I was told my father was dead and he wasn’t. 
Nobody would talk about him and when I finally figured out that he was alive and I couldn’t be denied, I was told by his father that he was criminally insane. This was another lie.

What these lies do to anyone at a core level is they undermine all sense of trust.

After years of therapy, facing my fears and grasping an understanding of Humanity with all her flaws and wonderment… I have been granted a gift. My wonderful gracious gift is that I have become a present grateful father who has zero expectations of others…
