“When one has not had a good father, one must create one.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
So often in life we are not given when we really need and when it comes to fathers, they are not only critical in showing their sons and daughters right from wrong, but also can be a life long friend.
If you weren’t given one by birth, don’t let it destroy you, but depending on your age, you might find someone who will become a father figure in The Boy Scouts of America or in your local church.
Go to the head pastor or priest and tell them you would like to be connected to resources and that you have no father-due to divorce, death or the one you have is abusive or simply not there.
There are other resources I will add to this post later on like Big Brothers of America.
