The best relationships is the one you never saw coming…
Hey guys.. This is a long awaited article for the king in my life. We are not connected by blood but we are definitely connected by our hearts and souls. I wonder sometimes why does he love me. What did he see in me to go against all odds?? But that’s just like him. Always doing the unexpected.
A father is the first man a little girl ever knows but somehow God needed my dad and he has been a guiding angel ever since. But I have been lucky to know a couple of them. Not only that, I have learnt a lot from all the father like figures I have had so far in my life. Everyone has touched me in my life and made me a better version of myself. But every time I knew that they are father like and not my daddy and trust me there is a difference.Always.
Now in the last 6 years I have been through all the emotions there is missing my dad. I have avoided looking at even the remotest father daughter relationship be it anywhere : movies, real life etc Coz the wound is still sore. The biggest lie I have ever heard is that time heals. It never has for me however.
But this article is not about that wound or that loss of my biological parent. It’s the happiness of getting adopted as someone’s daughter.Being Osci’s Kid.
We meet everyone for a reason and then they form a chapter in the story of our life. I met this sophisticated and charming man in an organisation I worked with. He was quite senior to me and always had a sense of belonging. He exuded warmth and hence was listened to without being authoritative.
We met and got along always like house on fire. We were a gang of 5 people and I was the youngest and somehow the most loved I feel. And he became a very integral part of my life. Every time I have asked him why am I his kid he has said it was meant to be. And that’s correct. In life we look for love and friendship but never for parents. I was his kid since forever as far as I can remember. As days passed I knew I was safe around him. He said I was his princess and trust me I didn’t believe him because I had come to believe fairy tales don’t exist. But he made me one. He allowed me to live my life according to my own terms always letting me know he was standing right beside me. He let me fall and did not pick me up unless I asked. He allowed me to screw things up and then asked me to clean it.
Life has a cruel way of teaching lessons and I had realised that quite early in life. But with Osci I realised it has a way of paying back too. Both of us are atheists but we are grateful of having each other. It’s not that we agree on everything. We have a lot of fights but nothing’s important than the bond we share.
He is the man who has made me realise what tears of happiness are. And I cherish it very close to my heart. It’s been a challenge for both of us. I am not used to being a daughter and neither he has any practice of being a dad. But we are finding our grounds.
I have not been, let’s just say, a great believer of selfless relationships. It’s only because I feel alienated in this world. My thoughts, my beliefs and ethics are just something I would not trade for anyone in the world. Thus it was very hard to get me within the boundaries of a emotional connect.
But some people are just meant to be. And it’s effortless with them. I am so humbled and grateful for the backbone he has been in my life.
You would not accept my thank you ever but please know this Osci this is my biggest happiness. Even though my aim is to make you very very proud but I have achieved my aim of being happy because of you.
Loads of love
