25 Amazing Things About Being A Daddy’s Girl

25 Amazing Things About Being A Daddy’s Girl

Dads are pretty awesome, but let’s face it, when you’re a daddy’s girl they’re literally the best! Few things in life are as powerful for a man than the daughter who adores him most. If you’re a favored daughter or the father of a little girl, you get it. This bond you’ve fused is stronger than the bond even the craziest of cat ladies shares with her first-adopted cat. That comparison really trumps any other argument I could possibly make, but I’ll continue on to prove my point anyway. So here you go, the 25 most amazing things about being a daddy’s girl:

1. You do no wrong

    Okay, maybe you’ll take a little blame sometimes, but the odds are typically stacked in your favor. Why? Because your big doe eyes are impossible to stay angry at. Any dispute between you and your siblings will obviously result in you bringing home the win. You may have stolen your sister’s $30 Dior eyeliner and used it as a replacement for your black crayon, but she really shouldn’t have left it lying around with the rest of her belongings in the first place. How else were you supposed to complete your special edition Sleeping Beauty coloring book? You couldn’t just skip over Maleficent!

    2. You’re never without a bestie

      Sure, you’ve got friends and siblings, but are they really listening when you vent? Probably not. Dad is though. He may not always want to hear your most recent gripe about your current boyfriend. He might also roll his eyes when you whine about your boss’s seriously ridiculous request that you clean the bathroom, but he’s there to listen. He’s your best friend. You may not realize it at first, but as you grow older, it becomes clearer and clearer that this man was the OG bestie all along.

      3. You learn to recognise good people

        A solid example of a good man is an important thing in a girl’s life. This is why daddy’s girls don’t settle. We know how a girl should be treated and mutual respect is a requirement for any romantic relationship. Other good things daddy’s girls learn include typical dude things like changing windshield wiper fluid, going with the flow when things get tough, establishing dominance in the workplace, and making an awesome seasoning out of random household condiments.

        4. You’ve got an honest opinion

          He may not always want to tell you what you want to hear, but sometimes you need a little honesty. While your mom and your friends feed you the compliments you need to stay motivated in refining your skills and talents, your dad dishes up the constructive criticism you need to take things to another level. The trick here is not totally freaking out at his attempt to provide feedback. Ultimately, it’s this honesty that helps you grow to be the amazing person he always knew you could be.

          5. Car trouble is no trouble

            Most people look at their Check Engine light and see dollar signs. You see another reason to give your dad a call. No matter the problem, he’s there to help you find the best solution. Need a ride back from the shop? He’s there. Looking for a car while yours is out of commission? He’s got your back.

            6. Your favorite meal is just a phone call away

            sushi

              As a daddy’s girl, you’ve grown to love the same food your dad loves. This means you’ve always got a dinner date ready to go when you’re craving a few rolls from your favorite sushi joint.

              7. You get the BEST advice

              advice

                Great advice comes from those who know you best. Daddy’s girls get it. This is why we always go to dad for advice. He offers the honest truth and solutions that align with our best interest. While friends lead you astray from time to time, dad’s advice never misses a beat.

                8. You’ve always got an honest second opinion

                second opinion

                  Your friends told you not to worry about the horizontal striped bodysuit. What happened when you saw yourself in pictures? You’re worried. Dad could’ve told you that. No sugar-coated opinions here, just the cold, hard truth you need to avoid bad outfits and bad boyfriends.

                  9. You experienced an awesome childhood

                    If dad went, you went. From outdoor adventures to Broadway productions, our dads never let us miss a moment of the fun. Sure there was an age limit, but he didn’t care. Your 2-year-old self had a Phantom of the Opera ticket in hand as you strutted (ok, maybe wobbled) your way down the streets of NYC.

                    10. You have cool nicknames no one else can call you

                      It’s just weird when someone else calls you this name. It’s a dad/daughter thing. Any attempt of others to pick it up fails miserably and you wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s what makes it so special.

                      11. You’ve always got a friend who knows how to cheer you up

                      cheer up

                        Others may try, but sometimes they fail. Dad? He never fails. He knows all of your favorite things and spares no effort in offering them to you in his quest for turning your frown upside down. Maybe one day someone will get close to this 100% success rate, but no one will ever get it quite like Dad. He’s been your best friend your entire life.

                        12. Someone will always love your Christmas presents

                        dad christmas

                          You get him and he gets you. This makes gift-giving fun. Friends and family won’t always love the “from-the-heart” gifts you give them, but dad will. Anything from his little girl might as well be a golden remote that grants access to unlimited football, all year round.

                          13. And you’ll always get a present you love

                          gifts

                            Sometimes you get gifts that you’re not so stoked on. Your friend or family member chose something they thought was awesome, but you? Not so much. Obviously you put on your best act to show your appreciation and gratitude for the caution orange sweater with your first initial engraved, but they missed the mark a bit. The good news is that dad is there to make up for it. His gifts are always on point. He knows what you like and carefully chooses unique gifts to fit.

                            14. “No” is foreign to your best friend

                            no

                              What is a “no”? I’m still not completely sure, but it sounds terrible. Daddy’s girls simply don’t hear “no”. Even if negotiation is required to settle in some instances, you always come out a winner in the end. This goes back to the big doe eyes thing. He can ‘t say no to his favorite person on the planet.

                              15. You’ll never be without a guardian

                              Advertising

                              dad

                                Life can get scary and things can get hard. The good news is that as a daddy’s girl, you’ve always got an amazing friend on your side. You’ll never enter a battle on your own. Even better, your companion will be smart, strong, and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for you.

                                16. You’ve got the biggest fan section at every event

                                grad

                                  Everyone is cheering, but you can always hear your dad’s voice above the crowd. He’s so proud of you and your accomplishments that bursting the ear drums of the audience members next to him is a non-issue.

                                  17. Support for a big decision is never an issue

                                  dad suit

                                    As a human being, you’ll be forced to make a major life decision at least once a year. Things get a whole heck of a lot easier with your dad on your side. He’s there to help you weigh the pros and cons, then make the best possible decision for your current and future happiness. The best part is, he’s there to support you and the decision you’ve made no matter the struggles that lie ahead.

                                    18. A good example is never out of site

                                    my-father-231x300

                                      Looking for an example of someone who’s made it far in life? Look no further than your dad. He’s been there and done that. After all, he’s raised a daughter who absolutely adores him so he must have done something right.

                                      19. Your secrets are always safe with someone

                                      shh

                                        Secrets tend to leak when you tell them to a friend. Dad on the other hand, he never tells. This means you always have someone to talk to when things get hard and you need a trusted friend to help you through.

                                        20. You always had someone in your corner at parent teacher conferences

                                        PTC

                                          Ok, maybe you should’ve paid attention in math. Maybe texting your friends about how insanely bored you were wasn’t the best idea. That’s beside the point now. You’re at parent teacher conference and it’s time to face the consequences…or maybe not. Dad’s in your corner no matter what. He realizes that you’re struggling and does his best to defend his daughter. After he’s spent 30 minutes explaining to the teacher that you are battling a serious case of TAD (text addiction disorder), he takes your teacher’s advice and helps you figure out the whole math thing everyone is so obsessed with.

                                          21. There’s an AMEX gold card with your name on it

                                            It may only be for emergencies, but it’s there if you need it. This makes life a whole lot easier when you find yourself in a bind. Maybe you should’ve changed your oil before taking your car on a girls’ trip to Vegas. The engine blew, but that doesn’t matter now. Your trusty AMEX has your back thanks to dad’s linked account.

                                            22. Having a man is a plus, not a must

                                            balloons

                                              Arguably, one of the best things about daddy’s girls is that we already have an awesome guy in our lives. Any additional guys are really just a plus. This means you can take your time to find the one you can’t live without, not dive right into a relationship with the one you seem to get along OK with.

                                              23. You’ve always got a great shopping buddy

                                              shopping

                                                He’ll pretend he doesn’t like it, but secretly your dad loves the shopping sprees you take together. You grow to like the stores that have sections for both men and women because this means you can shop for your favorite stuff at the same time. You get honest opinions (as mentioned in point 4) so you never have to worry that your shopping buddy is secretly sabotaging your attempt at achieving the perfect look for this year’s spring fling.

                                                24. A good friend isn’t hard to find

                                                support

                                                  Real friends are a rare thing. However, when you’re a daddy’s girl, you’ve had one since you made your first fabulous appearance on Earth. He’s there for you through thick and thin. He’ll always accept your apologies and will always make time for you no matter how hectic his schedule gets. Why? Because you two are best friends and that’s just what you do.

                                                  25. Your bond is unbreakable

                                                  older dad and daughter

                                                    When they said nothing lasts forever, they were wrong. As a daddy’s girl, your bond with your main man will never be lost. Even as you dive into your career, get married, or have children of your own, you’ll always have a special connection with your dad. Anytime you’re lost in love, life, or the crazy mess you call apartment living, he’ll be your go-to problem solver.

                                                    13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

                                                    13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

                                                    Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that set them up for success in life.

                                                    Take a look at these 13 things that mentally strong people don’t do so that you too can become mentally stronger.

                                                    1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves

                                                    Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair.

                                                    2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power

                                                    They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them. They don’t say things like, “My boss makes me feel bad,” because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions and they have a choice in how they respond.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    3. They Don’t Shy Away from Change

                                                    Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.

                                                    4. They Don’t Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control

                                                    You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

                                                    5. They Don’t Worry About Pleasing Everyone

                                                    Mentally strong people recognize that they don’t need to please everyone all the time. They’re not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair, but can handle other people being upset if they didn’t make them happy.

                                                    6. They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks

                                                    They don’t take reckless or foolish risks, but don’t mind taking calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time weighing the risks and benefits before making a big decision, and they’re fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action.

                                                    7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past

                                                    Mentally strong people don’t waste time dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past and can say what they’ve learned from it.

                                                    However, they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future.

                                                    8. They Don’t Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over

                                                    Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result, they don’t keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead, they move on and make better decisions in the future.

                                                    9. They Don’t Resent Other People’s Success

                                                    Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

                                                    10. They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure

                                                    Mentally strong people don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

                                                    11. They Don’t Fear Alone Time

                                                    Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive.

                                                    They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

                                                    12. They Don’t Feel the World Owes Them Anything

                                                    Mentally strong people don’t feel entitled to things in life. They weren’t born with a mentality that others would take care of them or that the world must give them something. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits.
