Maybe your dad is like mine. He’s never been much for sitting me down for a formal meeting in order to dispense fatherly advice. Instead, he dishes it out in bits and pieces whenever the moment is right. I’ve racked up a catalog of these little tru-isms my dad has shared with me over the years. Yeah, a lot of them are cliche, but they’ve stuck with me because of the context in which they were imparted.
One that sticks out is the bit of advice my dad gave me after I totaled my first car. It happened just two weeks after I turned 16. Rear-ended a guy. Man, I took it hard. I didn’t go to school for two days because I felt so sorry for myself. I had taken my first steps towards freedom and independence, but in a matter of seconds I was back to relying on my parents to haul me around.
In the middle of one my pity parties, my dad just told me, “This too shall pass.”
And you know what? As simple as it sounds, his piece of cliche advice made me feel better. Now, whenever things get bad and I think they couldn’t get any worse, I hear my dad’s voice in my head saying, “This too shall pass.” And it always does.
