Sometimes when things are stressful and aren’t working out the way you hoped you have to yield to others to ensure that your family is fully taken care of. Being dad means it’s about your children, and no longer about you. I struggle with this everyday.
I am a very selfish person. I want more money, I want a bigger house, I want stuff… But I want it all for me, not for my son. As I shift my thinking and start wanting things for him and not for me, I feel more inclined that those thoughts will come to fruition.
Once you son and/or daughter comes home, it should not longer be about you and your wife, it is now about your wife and child. Put them first and your life will be worth so much more.
Being dad means putting family first.
