Father and Son Troubles
A father is someone who helps to shape their son/daughter into the person that they are to become as an adult. My relationship with my father obviously started twenty years ago, and grows stronger and better as each day passes even with our many struggles. My father and I may fight and argue and disagree with each other, but we are best friends and I love him a ton. Even if sometimes I feel as if I’m being left out of each other’s lives due to my father’s commitments to his work and my new step-mother and step-sister, and my commitments to school, soccer, and other family members. My dad will never realize how much he means to me, but he is my hero.
When I was really young, I started playing soccer, and my dad helped me get better by playing with me in the backyard and taking me to the fields after school. He was not the coach of the team but rather, the coach of me. He would spend countless hours outside of practice in the backyard helping me hone my skills. Yes, there were many times he couldn’t spend time with me because of his heavy workload helping others being an EMT and a volunteer firefighter. When I was younger this bugged me especially because I didn’t really understand that concept. But, he always found a way to make me laugh and I always was able to make him laugh, that was when we were together. When we would get each other mad, there was always that one thing that made the other laugh and would relieve all the tension. Even if it took the thirty-five minute drive home from his house to my mom’s house, we would figure it out. Once we hit the driveway we usually had all of our shots at each other done and over with and if not my grandma always had a way of making things better. In other words, if she had to get involved it was better off if we were driving for another few hours. But, as I grew up I began to understand he couldn’t always be there for me, so it was extra special when he was able to come to a game....
