More responsible without a dad?
This user shares his experience of growing up without a father.
I also had to grow up without a father and guess what - I had to be a lot more responsible than I should have been had I had a father.
The responsibility that my father should have played in my life I had to do by myself since I'm the only son in the family.

We grew up struggling and I always told myself that my situation will change one day.

As a grown up I have realized that the 'sickness' of most people is that they tend to depend a lot on other people. Then they start blaming culture and saying that 'if I had a dad I should have been something'.

I definitely could not allow anything to limit me and had to be very much focused.

Growing up without a father does not mean that you are empty and the men should fill you up, it actually will gives you the opportunity to grow with a super mind not of your age level.

I really thank god that I had to grow up without a father because maybe I would have never seen the potential in me.
Although I am starting a new job and I'm currently spreading my wings in some very good businesses.
