    It's never the different religions, cultures, race or sexuality that cause problems, it's people's intolerance of them. My dad was a lot like this and we rowed a lot about his single-minded world view.
    An excellent heartfelt freewrite. :-) x

    My father was a spitting image and there was nothing that would change his mind or heart. I wished I had a vote left. Amazing write. All the best. Will add to my favorite

    This is such a raw and deep personal piece of writing. Thank you for sharing, the relationship with your father. We have many battles of contradictions with parents. I like the end very much, a sign of strength.
    Well done lady
    Much love

    Mary Anne, a honest heartfelt write. I'm sorry you have this type of relationship with your dad. As parents we should only want our children happy no matter if their beliefs don't mirror ours. Also as far as our partner choices, that's your choice to make, not your parents. I hope one day your dad will accept you just as you are and you can just be you. This really was well done-hugs-
