Ugh sorry to hear about that dude D:
It’s okay hopefully the counseling on saturday will help. Probably not though tbh. He’s incredibly stubborn and has the most closed mind ever. It probably comes from being an attorney? Honestly though I’m not a psychiatrist or anywhere close but from what I’ve read and from people I’ve encountered who’ve had similar experiences, he seems to fit the profile for someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Obviously that’s just a suspision but I think maybe the counsellor will be able to point out stuff that my dad could do better (but then probably won’t) and stuff I could do to make living in the house better for the two years left I have to do it. I don’t think we’re ever going to see eye to eye and I really don’t think he’s going to see the error of his ways or ever even consider there might be an error in his ways. He believes he’s perfect. He honestly does and it’s a problem. If you challenge him on it, he’ll say that he’ll admit when he’s wrong but until then he’s gonna be confident, but that is 100% bullshit.
I remember one time we were having dinner and for some reason we started talking about the word tangled (probably because of the movie). And my dad said that tangled could be a noun, to which the rest of us said no fucking way you idiot. Like it’s a proper noun because of the movie but it can’t be a regular noun. He got up from the table, checked the dictionary, and came back and was dead silent. He didn’t admit shit. And that’s why he’s a fucking hypocrite. He will doggedly point out everything that you do wrong but everything you say is wrong about him is either misinformed or a good thing in disguise. He thinks he can do no wrong and that’s why I hate his guts.
