I will let you wander on your own and grow to be the man that you want to be.
I will encourage you to dream big dreams – be an architect, a teacher, a volunteer, a doctor, an artist, a businessman, a boatman – and remind you to always be kind and polite and respectful of everyone you meet.
Watch the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. You will see how life is like upside down. It’s a very sad movie, but it will teach you a bit about life and death.
Make your own money and be ready to build a family without any pressure from me or the society.
Your father is the best thing that happened to me and I want you to be the same to the girl that you will choose to love for the rest of your life. Give me enough time to know her and bond with her over girl things.
Don’t spend too much time at home, in front of the TV, or playing video games. There are a lot of things to be done outside our home, your city, your school, your workplace, your island, your country, your world.
Spend time doing things that terrify you and give you a sense of accomplishment.
PS – Son, if you turn out to be gay, we will love you the same way.
