Cheers.I'm glad things are looking up.
I hope you don't give yourself a hard time about this. This was the way it was back then. You did what you thought was best and followed the advice of the time.
So good you have a good enough relationship with him to talk about it and work out what he needs. That's important.
I hope he finds himself and continues to thrive.
Of course I give myself a hard time about it. How could I not.
But I can't change any of that, so don't dwell on it.
Now that I've acknowledged what was wrong, I have to stop myself from doing exactly the same thing, by telling him what to think from my new perspective!
It's hard, the Dad thing is difficult to overcome.
He knows himself better than I do.
It will take longer than I want, for him to come to terms with the stuff he needs to, but my input won't speed that up.
