Father daughter relationship has always held a special place in the universe. There’s a special bonding. It perfectly portrays no matter what happens, the daughter will always be the princess of her father and the father will always be the best man of the daughter. A father goes through a different state of mind all throughout the growth phase of his daughter. The little baby, whom he holds up in his hands on the day she is born gets married and goes away leaving behind everything. This feeling is terrible for him as well as for the daughter. And, perhaps, this feeling makes the relationship even more special. Let’s have a look on how a father plays his role in the life of his daughter from his perspective in his own voice.
1. The Moment She’s Born, I Started Caring For Her Safety
In the world of rising crimes against women, the first thought, which came to my mind as soon as I held her up in my arms is her safety. I try to keep her safe. I protect her against all the evils. She’s my princess. And, I really don’t wish her to get hurt. Even if she gets hurt, I give her my shoulders to cry on and hands to hold and rise up to make her believe from her heart that her daddy is always there for her.
2. As She Started to Grow, It was Important for Me to Explain the Definition of Life to Her
Life is not always the bed of roses. It has its own ups and downs, twists and turns. But, it’s important that she moves on. A river has to go through several rough courses to meet the sea. But, it never stops flowing. I have ensured no matter what happens in her life, she must always fight back and move on. She must not stop. She may take some pause. But, she needs to move on.
3. It’s My Responsibility to Make Her Able to Compete with the Rest of the World in Every Sphere of Life
Yes, it was on me and to all the fathers of the daughters out there to make her able to stand on her own feet, to compete with the counterparts so that she doesn’t fall victim to the society. At times, I scolded her. I did not fulfill all her wishes. She cried. I let her cry. I felt bad that my princess has tears in her eyes. But, I let her cry. Because, this is how she will understand that she may not get everything she wishes to. This taught her how to adjust, compromise and sacrifice for certain things (definitely not all) and still move on in life. Yes, it’s true that you may not get whatever you wish in your life. But, that doesn’t mean your life ends there. You need to accept and act accordingly.
4. The Hardest Phase of Life: One Day She Just Leaves
Well, daughters get married and leave her house. How hard will it be to hand over your own part of life to some other guy and family? But, we fathers, have to go through this process. Though, we cry within ourselves, but still we carry out this ritual with a smile on our face to make her settled in her life with her life partner. Yes, now she has her own house. And, I have promised to be with her always. But, the story doesn’t end here. I made her belief that no matter what happens in her life, I’ll be there with her. So, even after her marriage, I’ll never go back from my words. My daughter trusts me much more than any other males in her life. And, I know that. She knows that her dad is there with her for the ups and downs in her life post marriage as well.
5. Last but Not the Least, I Wish Her All the Success in Her Life
Time changes. Situation varies. The only thing constant is my wishes and prayers for my little princess. Wherever she goes, whoever she is with, I always pray for her good health and wish her all the success in all her endeavors.
I’ve made her strong enough to tackle all the things life throws at her. And, I’m with her. She knows that. She knows how to survive even when her papa isn’t around her physically. Because, she has him in her heart. And, she’s never alone.
