It’s so beautiful when friends share stories on social media celebrating their fathers.
It’s also painful for those of us who have a difficult or a non-existent relationship with our bio dads. Sometimes, it’s simply just complicated!
I don’t know the details about Demi Lovato and her difficult relationship with her father, but based on a couple heart-wrenching songs about her dad, her art seems to be therapeutic both for her and those of us dealing with similar pain.
Her song, “Father” resonates with me to the core of my being. Her vocals seriously ache as she sings about her disappointment, her desire to make sense of the things about her dad that created wounds, and her desire to forgive.
If you have a complicated or non-existent relationship with your father, I hope this song is as meaningful to you as it is to me!
