It's always hard to take critism from those closest to us, but it's wonderful that the love was recognized eventually. A wonderful piece.
It's not always easy to recognise that criticism may disguise feelings of love. It's good though that your dad's revelation to you allowed you to see his good intentions.

I'm glad you (or your character) came to an understanding of your father's love while he was still alive.
Engagingly told. What maturity and balanced insight for a sensitive daughter growing up under such a critical eye!

How wonderful that you haven't allowed those childhood experiences, whatever the reason for them, to make you bitter today. You certainly are a capable creative woman! May God continue to use you and keep you soft, forgiving and loving.
