Unlike The Unhappy Wife book, Daddy is not written by me. This anthology includes stories written by women, who felt it important to publicly re-tell narratives centered on their relationship with their father. Each woman’s purpose is similar, yet different. Every Friday, I invite you to read about their reason why.

Today, meet Kotrish Wright, author of “Sunday Punch.”

What is your father-daughter relationship like now? Currently, my father-daughter relationship is manageable.

1521808695783If there is one thing you could tell your father what would it be? Dad, we all have things we have to work on, and not knowing the unknown can be scary, but I believe in you and I forgive you for all the tough moments that transpired between us. I wish you could understand the positive impacts they have had and continue to have on my life.

If there is one thing you could tell women who struggle with “daddy issues” what would it be? Healing and forgiveness are your power tools.

If there is one thing you could tell men with daughters what would it be? Be gentle with your daughter’s heart, be present in all aspects of her life, and ensure you create a healthy space for an authentic relationship to manifest.

What do you hope your story accomplishes? Selfishly, my story has already accomplished liberation from that part of my life. As for others, it is my hope that it encourages those who are suffering in silence to speak up and speak out.

  1. I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately, but this is a very great concept for a book. I have the Unhappy Wife, in which I have yet to read. SMH @ myself. I will get there, but this looks like a good one that will give men a better understanding of how to treat their daughters and women in general.

  2. “Healing and forgiveness are your power tools.” Indeed they are. Not always easy to chose to use these tools 😉 Getting more excited about this book every time I read another ‘reason why’. Counting down the weeks till availability 🙂

  3. I love my husband very much, but the thing I value the most about him is the way he has treated my daughter. Having a loving father who accepts you is so important. I always knew my father loved me, but I also knew that I was not exactly the daughter he had in mind. And that hurt. My daughter doesn’t have any such problems, and you can’t imagine how grateful I am for that!

      1. Mostly implied, but he was quick to point out our faults. My father didn’t have a good relationship with his mother, and the family he grew up in had some major tragedies to deal with, so it effected his ability to be a good parent. But I know he tried, and I also know that his opinion of me was just that..his opinion. I don’t have to be limited by that.
