I agree with you. There's a lot on this site that gets polarized, and it isn't typically "for the better" for the collective.[
My Dad died a few years ago.
Sounds like you had an awesome upbringing.
Despite my parents divorce mine was good too. When some guys here say kids become damaged if there is no father figure around, it’s not the presence or absence of the father, but the quality of the father. And the quality of the mother too.
If a parent is a sh*t parent it’s sometimes better that they are not around.
I am still floored about how good I had it. I thought everyone's childhood was like mine.
Then, I turn 18 and we (my friends and I) all graduate and they start confessing how fvcked up their home life was. Emotional abuse, physical abuse, incest, rape, molestation, alcoholism, the list goes on. I'm still floored about it, and grateful.
