Welcome to The Absent Father Project.
The Absent Father Project is a blog for men who grew up with an absent or distant father. Its a place to understand our selves and learn about the impacts of being abandoned. Its a place for men to heal the feelings many of us have chosen to never feel. Its a place for men to grow up and transcend our childhood stories. Its a place to connect, to share, and mostly to experience that we are not alone in this journey.
It's a place for me, Rodney Mueller, a fatherless son, to share and creatively express the profound impact that growing up without a Dad has had on my life. Through my story and my perspective, I hope to shed light on yours and as I free myself from my story of growing up fatherless, I hope to free you from yours.
We don't have to be trapped by the story that we made up about ourselves as a little boy. The story that we are not good enough and that we can't rely on others places a ceiling on our experiences in life. It creates an upper limit with money, leadership and love.
Join me as we endeavor to transcend these stories and reclaim our power.
