Truth Theory recently asked our readers on Facebook to share with us the most valuable life lessons they have learned from their fathers, and there were some fascinating responses.
The majority of comments were positive, with some people sending in some lovely touching posts about the life lessons they had been taught.
Unfortunately, though there is no point in sugar-coating the fact that for a fair number of people, their father was absent or even abusive.
Others clearly inherited a great sense of humor from their dads.
In keeping some balance with the real world, we’ve included a variety of different responses within our top 30 list (in no particular order).
The heartfelt – some genuine pearls of wisdom
Painful life lessons
A touch of humor in these life lessons
A big thanks to everyone who shared their personal stories! There were loads more great posts, some funny, some sad, some enlightening. Unfortunately we couldn’t include them all in this story, but if you would like to join the conversation, please log on to our Facebook page.
