I Am The Farthest Thing From A 'Daddy's Girl,' But That's My Father's Loss

I Am The Farthest Thing From A 'Daddy's Girl,' But That's My Father's Loss

He doesn't know what he's missing out on...


I never will be a daddy’s girl.

One thing is for sure, I am definitely not a daddy’s girl.

I am the farthest thing away from that and I am okay with it. I have come to the conclusion I am not one of my brothers, so I am less important than they are. I am less important because I am a girl and I probably won't like hunting and fishing and all that.

Well, guess what, it’s his loss because I LOVE fishing.

My dad doesn’t realize that what he’s doing to me is tearing me apart, it kills me to sit here and not be involved. No, I am not saying I want to be involved in everything they do, but I would like to be invited sometimes! I want to feel a little important to him. I know that’s not going to happen, though.

He doesn’t even take the time to get to know me as a person or my interests which is his loss, not mine.

He hasn’t even taken the time to get to know the business I have created for myself for me to grow - which if you ask me is kind of pathetic. It would be nice if at least once he told me he was proud of me.

He has done some things that have made me feel like I am an inconvenience to him. He seems to always be annoyed when I’m around. I don’t know what I ever did to him but whatever I did, I’m sorry.

I'm sorry I am not one of the boys.

I’m sorry I didn’t really play sports like they did/do. Even when I did do sports you never even cared to come to a single game or anything.

You jump for any event my brothers have going on or an award ceremony or something, but whenever I had something going on, you didn’t even come... Not even to an art show and those meant so much to me. You never came to any of my school functions but were right there for my brothers.

I am very hopeful that sometime in the future you will open up and let me in.

I am 21 years old now and you have kept me on the outside for this long. I know it’s wishful thinking, but I hope maybe, just maybe, you will get to know me as a person.

One day, I want you to ask “Hey, Court, want to go fishing with me and the boys?” but I know that’s crazy to ask and wish for. Maybe you will realize I am here, too, it’s not all about them.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
