I have a uncle who caused a lot of pain to my family while growing up
Often times my dad and I would argue and he would call me by his name
In many ways, we both had a lot in common. I get that
At my age I can now better understand the trauma he carried with him
Two days ago I called him just to say how proud I am of the way he is
But last time I saw him I came very close to punch him in the face.
I love my dad very much
