My friends who grew up without a meaningful relationship with their fathers have become exemplary fathers themselves, because one need only to be a good human to be a good father.
A way to help soothe that ache might be to mentor young folks (especially the ones that look like us!). Young people give me strength! Finding a connection is what’s important, although not a substitute directly.
Your ability to self-reflect means you’ll do fine when that time comes (eventually… don’t start panicking! No rush my dude!).
