"I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection." -- Sigmund Freud
Sigmund definitely had this part right... there isn’t anything quite like being able to melt into your father’s arms and knowing that everything is going to be okay. The world could be falling to pieces all around me, but I always know that my dad will be there – to stand strong, to offer advice, to comfort me. Growing up, I didn't realize that his advice was something that I needed to listen to.... but as it turns out, he's ALWAYS right. I am truly blessed.
