“The first step to healing is acknowledging and honoring how you feel and what really happened in your young life.” – Terri Cole


Do you ever stand in the card aisle around Father’s Day, endlessly searching for a card that doesn’t exist because none of the cards on the shelf accurately describe your relationship with your father?

This used to be me.

Growing up, all the cards I saw said, You’re the most amazing father ever! You were always there for me! You did everything right!

None of these messages felt right. They didn’t capture my feelings toward or my reality with my father.

If Father’s Day is painful for you, you’re not alone. There are ways you can grieve, mourn, and honor the complex emotions this day evokes, which I share in this episode.


The most common father wound myths:

  • 5:00 How I shifted my own perspective about my father’s support in therapy
  • 7:20 Mourning the dream of the father figure you wish you had
  • 9:05 Acknowledge and honor your downloaded father blueprint
  • 12:45 Celebrate an influential adult or your partner
