There is so much truth in this PostSecret submission. As a part of the human race's innate brokenness, men have one of the hardest jobs on earth: to be a father - a role model, a support, a guide - to their children, especially to their daughters. The world does a really great job filling young girls' heads with lies: "You're ugly", "You're not cool", "No one loves you", "You're not worthy". Thus, fathers really need to be there for their little girls throughout all of their lives. Even when it's hard, even when she is fighting back in rebellion, even when she's embarrassed, even when she's grown into a young woman - don't give up on her, don't abuse her trust, don't abandon her, don't let her believe she is unloved by you. Tell her, show her, be love to her. She needs that love more than you can imagine. Truly, daughters need their fathers more than they know.
Trust me, I know.
