My Dad didn’t talk about his job much when I was growing up. He had a fairly normal career in banking. I didn’t consider my Dad’s job exciting or inspirational growing up, and now that I’m older and have kids I realize that wasn’t the point. His job allowed me to have a stable and priviledged childhood. It allowed me to go to college and graduate debt free. His career choices helped provide the model I use to provide for my own family. Everything I admire about my Dad has nothing to do with his resume, and everything about job he did as a father. This is apparently one of those things it takes decades to learn and understand.
