What I've learnt from my Dad

Dads like every human being are flawed. They have good traits and bad and for a long time I only saw the bad but recently I've been thinking about the good... 

First off let me say, he was born in Bangladesh so when he came to Britian he had to work for everything he has now. I think every ethnic minority (or even European) knows what I mean, our families have worked so hard to build a life here, in famous ' london'. 

This work ethic is still as strong as ever. And I admire it, he's constantly working and he will do the best at his job. And the thing with my Dad is, he doesn't have pride or embarrassment in anything he does, whatever situation he's in, he'll take the responsibility and do it. I think that's admirable and I also think British (Bengali) guys lack this, the strong work ethic, the social responsibility, understanding a 'mans' role or what have you.

We are all so selfish and caught up in our own lives we don't have time or we don't make time for anything else. But I've been thinking and although I would never marry a man from Bangladesh (originally born there) who only speaks Bengali (for the obvious reasons, lack of communication, interests ) I think British Bengali guys could learn a thing or two from them.  

And maybe I could too. I lack a strong work ethic and I think my Dad has made me want one.
