Our fathers are the people whose strength of will and patience made us who we are today. Now, as adults, we have more power to reciprocate their care and support with wholehearted gratitude. After all, we can humbly agree that dads are superheroes.
With them by our side to watch over us, we had all the freedom to experience life to the fullest as children. Although we have grown so much, their protection, support, and experience continue to spark the motivation and courage to do the best we can today.
11 Reasons Dads Are Superheroes
Dads can be many things. They are inspiring, capable, grounded, and strong. They are wise, funny and they have all the right answers. Above anything else, they are our greatest role models and superheroes, and here is a brief reminder why…
Dads Are Big and Strong & We Look Up to Them
Who was there to carry us when we were little and lift all the heavy things around the house? Our fathers are our role models. So many times, they were the stoic, powerful figures and backbones of the family. They taught us how important it is to be resilient and stay strong during trying times.
Most importantly, they taught us that sometimes personal power is found through trial and error, and that being there for the ones you care about is the greatest strength of all.
They Protect Us & Keep Us Safe
Dads are superheroes in disguise. There is no greater sense of safety than knowing that no matter what life brings, your dad will always be there to support and protect you. They were the ones to support our first steps, and they remain to be the ones to support our biggest life decisions.
Dads Handle All the Yucky Stuff so We Don’t Have To
How many times have you seen your dad handle the unpleasant situations so you didn’t have to? From cleaning up the dead bird who flew into the window and plunging the toilet, to taking care of our injuries, dads always seem to know how to approach a questionable matter and deal with it like the bosses that they are.
Dads Make Sacrifices for Us
Our most memorable childhood experiences, our education, and our toys were all the long-term investments our dads created a base for. We wouldn’t be the people we are today if it wasn’t for them and their ability to make sacrificed for our benefit. They are the heroes who prioritized us and always had our best interest in mind.
They Make Everything Fun
At time, life can be challenging. Our dads are superheroes who support us not only by cheering us on and helping us expand our horizons and grow, but also by teaching us how to make lemonade when life gives us lemons (and laugh while doing it). When with them, serious matters are often discussed, but the rest is always left to go with a flow and spiced up with jokes and good will.
They Teach Us Everything They Know
Some of the most valuable life lessons are those we learned from the men we love and trust the most. Fathers are some of the greatest teachers we meet in our lifetime. The knowledge and wisdom that they share with us is a result of their consistent effort, practice, self-development and lessons learned.
By sharing what they know they have saved us from making many unnecessary mistakes. More than anything, they helped us grow, mature, and evolve as people, and for that, we can be eternally grateful.
Dads Are Funny
Dads are superheroes, but they are also hilarious, sometimes even without intending to be. In all their seriousness, they somehow always manage to make us laugh. They always have a good joke up their sleeve to brighten our day, and as much as they try to be serious and grounded, they usually gift us with some good humor and optimism. That’s one of the reasons why we love and appreciate them so much.
They Teach Us How to Be Brave
In times when loss, disappointment or hurt have plagued us, our fathers were often the most centered people around. In moments of crisis, they stand firmly on the ground, seemingly unshaken by the unpleasant circumstances. They taught us to believe in ourselves, to embrace our personal power, be brave, and look danger straight in the eye. They taught us all that by being an example that can never be replaced.
Dads Take Us on Adventures
Camping, fishing, and traveling with dad are some of the most precious memories one can have. Dads are adventurers at heart. No matter if they are passionately sharing a captivating story from their youth or taking us to a mountain bike race, moments with them are always memorable. Dads are superheroes, and their company and zest for life can turn every occasion into a fun learning experience and an unforgettable adventure.
Dads Play Superheroes With Us
No matter how old we are, our fathers will always be our knights in shining armor, ready to save the day. When we were little, they wore capes and played with us. Now, as grown-ups, they still take on the superhero role when we need them the most.
When things get difficult and the pressure of modern life becomes too much to bear, they are always there to boost our confidence and tackle any challenge like real superheroes do.
They Know When to Say “Ask Your Mother”
Dads are superheroes and they have all the answers you need, but sometimes, moms simply have better answers. Our fathers are the force that can move the ground, but most importantly, they are balanced folks who can admit when mom knows best.
When in doubt, they know how to share the throne with their better half and appreciate the voice of their partner. After all, all superheroes work with other, equally powerful allies.
In the eyes of their children, no matter how old they are, their fathers will always be the strongest, most powerful and knowledgeable men on Earth. Having such men in our lives is more than a blessing; it’s an honor.
