I have always tried to do right by my family. I have worked hard to provide for them and be a strong, supportive presence in their lives. But recently, I have been struggling with feelings of being used and unwanted as a partner and father and although it may not be factual I ponder it. It's a difficult position to be in, especially when I am also expecting a new baby.
Growing up, I didn't have a father figure in my life. It was a difficult and often times tumultuous experience. But I am grateful for it now, because it has shaped me into the man I am today. It has given me the determination to be a better father to my own daughters and soon-to-be son.
I am committed to creating a new path for my family, one that is filled with love and support. But it hasn't been easy. My mother is not doing well and my father is unable to work. I am also growing in debt every day. But despite these challenges, my inner strength is at its best.
I have found that my sewing machine, fabric, and patterns have taken me further than I ever could have imagined. It has allowed me to travel the world and keep my family alive. It's something that I am passionate about and I want to share it with others.
If you're reading this and you're feeling lost or unsure of yourself, let me tell you that sewing and creating can take you further than you think. Don't be afraid to try something new and let me help you along the way.
I have found solace in my faith and have turned to God for guidance and strength in these trying times. I have also made a conscious effort to put my family at the forefront of my thoughts and actions. I am determined to not let my own struggles consume me, but rather to transmute them into something positive.
Through my business and school, I hope to plant the seeds for a better tomorrow and inspire others to never settle for less than they are capable of. I want to remind all people that we are all capable of great things, no matter what challenges we may face.
This has been a difficult journey, but I am determined to come out on the other side stronger and more resilient. I hope that by sharing my story, I can inspire others to never give up and to always strive for greatness.
I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE MY FAMILY AND PLEASE LOVE YOURSELF
