As I entered my later teens my desire to meet, hopefully establish a relationship, the other person who was responsibility for me being in the world became an obsessive curiosity.
I had to meet him to satisfy my curiosity.
One of my most powerful moments was meeting and hearing my biological father say these words to me:
“I am glad to hear from you.”
If you are mentoring youth do you share some of your most powerful emotional experiences with your mentee? If not, why?
I know as an adult male, hearing those words from my biological father set in motion a healing, forgiveness and an acceptance process for me.
Meeting him helped me move on in life!
