Life is a mystery. Yet and still people have been told that they are in control of their lives. Influenced by media, religion and a society that says when, where and how life should be you can’t help but fill frustrated when things do always go as planned.

So what happens to the girl whose father chooses not to be there? Clearly, she didn’t know her fate or his for that matter. The questions constantly popping up and clouding her mind with how human form could deny human creation.

It has been expressed by one young lady in particular that she would have rather been loved completely by her father and lost him to death than to have him alive and well and not experience his love. Deep, huh? Unfortunately, many young women know this pain all too well and too often. Agony embeds her: false hope, tears, trust issues and a blueprint of how to be loved well, left blank. She didn’t choose this storyline she just had to take the role and make it her own. You know…win even when it feels impossible.

So she stumbles through life with a broken compass seeking, joy, love, success or anything that gives her meaning even if it has the potential to not be good for her. Little does she know that this storyline although, challenging will reward her once she’s willing to release the grip of the things that cannot be re-scripted.

The greatest thing she can do since she wasn’t crowned as “Daddy’s Little Girl” is DECIDE! Decide to make the most out of the hand she was dealt, embrace the stumbling blocks and in turn use them as the catalyst to better. As each day passes she will understand that this was all necessary as her foundation (under pressure) came out stronger than many and it’s the very thing that will allow her to empower others!

For the ladies who are fatherless due to death and he loved you…see the beauty in what you did get to experience! The memories are gold and envied by those who don’t have them. Finally, for those that are fatherless because daddy just doesn’t want to…know that it has nothing to do with you. Allow yourself to grieve, but promise yourself that you will live your life as best you can.

We want to hear from you! Share with us how not being a daddy’s girl impacted you. Are you stronger? Weaker? Wiser? What got you through?

      Mechon thank you sooo much for taking the time to read this piece! It was difficult to write while simultaneously being freeing to write. I held on to it for over 6 months not sure how I felt about posting it! Silly, me…people need this type of content!
