My father never said I love you - TMI Project

As a result of growing up in a violent household, Martin craves positive relationships with men but has a hard time trusting them until he meets Tom, a chairman of Goldman Sachs. Tom takes Martin under his wing and sees something in him that he can’t yet see in himself.

“My father never said “I love you,” so I annoy my children with lots of I love you’s. He hardly supported or attended my events, so I do my best to never miss any of my children’s events. He put strangers before his own family. I will always put my kids first.”


Join TMI Project for a Black Stories Matter virtual drop-in workshop.

These free workshops are offered as a safe space for Black people to gather, write, share stories, and receive support. The 8-week series begins on June 24th.
