me and my dad have a rough relationship, and have since i was little. one of my earliest memories of him is him telling me that i would never be successful or achieve anything worth while. i was around 5, maybe 6, and those words have stuck with me ever since.he’s got a short temper, and frequently says things that upset me. he always knows exactly what to say to hurt you. he makes me feel weak and defenseless- like im inferior compared to him. but he also makes me angry. like really fucking angry. he’s incredibly misogynistic, and frequently makes comments that either make me feel uncomfortable or really irritate me. growing up, he’s caused a lot of appearance related issues for me, due to his narrow minded and objectifying view of women. he also frequently makes politically disgusting comments about sensitive issues that he KNOWS will wind me up. and everything he does just IRRITATES ME. but recently, hes tried to be better. he’s trying not to piss me off on purpose as much and control his temper. but now, its ME that is the problem. im the one who gets irritated with him for no reason. who “hurts” him. he frequently says that i upset him because “you never hug me and dont want to spend time with me”. truth is, i dont hug him much. i dont feel comfortable doing so because of how he’s spoken ab women- and about me- in the past. im almost scared of him. and i dont like spending time with him, because HES SO ANNOYING. i cant forgive him.
