The emotional and spiritual effects of fatherlessness is disturbing. The following are symptoms of fatherlessness. First, there is an insecurity or a sense of inferiority because of neglect, lack of affirmation, or abandonment. These men would walk around with insecurities that negatively impact the way they relate in business, ministry, and marriage. These boys never full trust their abilities, and they don’t commonly trust other people around them to do right by them. This sense of inferiority complex causes them to hide their low self-esteem by projecting an overtly macho persona, full of confidence, but deep inside truly afraid.
Men who have experienced fatherlessness have a hard time inwardly submitting to any form of spiritual authority.
Men who have experienced fatherlessness have a hard time inwardly submitting to any form of spiritual authority. Fatherless men have a distrust for authority figures. They mostly make their own decisions without getting real counsel, and if they do get counsel, they ultimately do what they want to do anyway because they don’t believe anyone fully looks out for their own interests.
There is great competitive drive due to the comparisons with other men. They have a greater need to prove their worth. Some men’s insecurities cause them to constantly compare themselves with other men. They are always looking for ways to outdo other men. They want to prove that they are better, despite having grown up without a father.
The interesting thing about this behavior is they may even hate their fathers, but they are unaware of how they are emotionally geared to secure their dad’s approval.
Fatherless men are often driven by selfish ambition with an innate need to please their fathers. Many fatherless men are psychologically living their lives to prove to their fathers, whether dead or alive that they are worthy of their father’s love. The interesting thing about this behavior is they may even hate their fathers, but they are unaware of how they are emotionally geared to secure their dad’s approval.
Another sad impact of fatherlessness is that men are unable to relate to their own biological sons. Most of the time, they have no clue as to how they can emotionally connect with their sons and daughters. One man only played video games with his son. When asked why he could not have a decent conversation with his son, he confessed that he had no idea on how to be a father to his son, because he never had a father in his life.
Fatherless men also are not be comfortable having spiritual fathers. These men struggle with anger and trust issues regarding their fathers, and have a hard time when they are with those in the Body of Christ, and can be spiritual fathers. They clam up and stop speaking freely. They can also get nervous or try hard to know how to relate and please them. They hide their struggles from them because they are afraid the spiritual father will use it against them.
Fatherless men also have a hard time connecting to the love of God the Father.
Fatherless men also have a hard time connecting to the love of God the Father. Some fatherless men have a hard time fellowshipping and enjoying their Father in heaven because they have a works mentality. They try to approach Him with their own sense of perfection to prove their worth. They do not have a good earthly model of fatherhood from their natural fathers, and they have no understanding of how to relate to God the Father and His unconditional love.
