Becoming a father

Let’s start with the first item from the list: Becoming a father. As I start to compose my narrative, I’m asking myself questions such as, what was the moment when I knew I was going to be a father? What were the emotions I felt when I realized I was going to be a father? What advice did I get from family and friends? What impact has becoming a father had on my life?

So it has been a year and almost 6 months since I brought a beautiful baby girl into this world. It’s been a rollercoaster. Even before I found out I was going to be a father, things were kind of crazy in my life. The moment I knew I was going to become a father…honestly, I was so out of it and didn’t know what I was going to do with myself because I was still trying to figure my own things out to make sure I was good. Still, I was for sure happy because I’ve always wanted a little me running around. Although I am still very young, I’ve always wanted kids since I was younger. The emotions I felt when I realized I was going to be a father were very nervous and scared, just for the simple fact that I’m still young, and didn’t know how my family was going to take the news and react, but other than those emotions I was also very excited because I was bringing a whole human being in the world. Some advice I got from my family and friends was that I should take it slow and that everything will eventually fall right in place. An impact becoming a father has had on my life is realizing that there is much more to life than what I was into before. I was never the best-behaved child growing up: always in problems and always getting myself into stuff that I should have never gotten myself into. Becoming a father has made me into a much better man and making sure now I just do everything I need to to make sure my kid and I are great in the future.

Dear Angel:

I am inspired by your post, “Becoming a father”, because it portrays many thoughts that many people might have before having a child of their own. It’s very understandable how you felt and many people might feel the same by feeling nervous and it is totally normal.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Some advice I got from my family and friends was that I should take it slow and that everything will eventually fall right in place.” I think it is great that you received support from people you thought were going to react bad so it teaches that you should never be scared to talk.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like your comparisons you make with your life and that of other people.

Dear Angel:
I am inspired by your post, “Becoming a Father,” because it’s very calming to know that people are also nervous about being fathers in the future and that I’m not the only one. Although I’m not planning to be a father soon, I feel secure about my future.
