What do I want for father’s day? Solitude. However it’s a mistake to ask your wife for it because it’s not worth their resentment. There’s no better gift your family can give (to celebrate Father’s day) than to acknowledge daddy doesn’t prefer your company. A man is absurd by nature; it’s nature’s way of saying “see...even I don’t make sense.” Wives...leave your man alone. Don’t love yourself through a man’s affection, leave him alone. Your husband needs solitude. Alone means alone. Imagine solitude like you can jettison your lust for other people’s attention. That’s solitude, it’s a great gift for a father. Do not be resentful, it’s selfish. We all have inconvenient needs to enjoy our lives, don’t help fathers fight what comes naturally: being an asshole.
An asshole is a stupid, irritating, and contemptible person. Why exactly would you resent his request for solitude? You can’t fix an asshole because unfortunately (for you) he’s not broken. The best thing you can do is leave him alone to address his void. The void isn’t a bottomless pit it’s a safe space. Free from lust, free from influence, free from engagements. Solitude engages involuntary mechanisms, no more. Here you are responsible for nothing but your own desires...only to observe how gullibility works. With the pith of a dying echo, the darkness is laughter. Darkness is laughing at you because you do not see how gullible you are. Solitude reminds you how gullible you really are because there is no void, you are not broken, there is nothing to fix. You think you can fix something that is not broken and you are gullible enough to believe you have failed. Fathers are gullible assholes, wives help them to remember that by leaving them alone. What is the best Father’s day gift? Solitude.
Here’s an example of a married man addressing his wife:
I am not the man you deserve, and that is why I resent you. I choke on your charity, and that is my void to fill. I fill it with carnal longings to observe how my palette prefers delusion. Do not love yourself through my affection, its empty calories. It’s like drinking water just…makes me more thirsty. All it does is massage my throat and stimulate comfort in the knowledge God doesn’t make accidents appear planned. I am this way so you wife can learn (through your charity), I’m not your dad. I’m not the man you deserve, that’s why I resent you (just like daddy). You want to help some one who reminds you of your father, how’s that going for you? You chose to overcome your father’s resentment through sheer audacity. Marry the first bugger that reminds you of your dad, and try to fix something that is not broken. Your “charity”…you are choking me with it. You are choking me with your charity because you are lacing my void shut with straw. Why? You see something in me I don’t. This is why I need solitude. Leave me be woman.
