I will probably never be a father — but who cares?

Today is Father Day.

I am lucky to have a father. But being a father is a tough job.

I don’t think I will ever be a father. And that’s a good thing. A very wise thing to do.

I have a genetic condition which will probably make my children more handicapped than I am. So handicapped that the odds that they will be unable to enjoy life like I did are high.

The other thing is that I don’t have the social and emotional skills to be a father. Rather than having children who will have an unhappy and unstable father and this especially in this world where many dads have left their children — the wisest thing to do is to perhaps not to have children.

One thing is sure in this world — the path to happiness is a different path for anyone. You sometimes have to do tough choices to get through this path.
