    Why Can't My Father Be a Normal Loving Dad?

    I have never hated anyone before, but I can honestly say that I hate my father. Why? Because for my whole life I have put up with his incessant perfectionism, obsession with small detail, short temper, criticism, verbal abuse, and emotional abuse. He is a very opinionated and...

    I don't talk to him. I try to avoid him

    as much as possible, but that pretty damn hard to do when I live under the same roof as him. He's a narcissist who tries to live through his children and control everyone around him. He acts like a child himself. He likes to instigate arguments through meaningless ad hominem...

    I hate my dad. He's so close minded,

    hypocritical, and ugh he makes me mad. He's the reason for my depression. He gets mad at me for no reason. He "tests" me as in taking initiative or getting me to talk to him. No I hate that I don't like tests. If he wants me to do something then be straightforward I'm a teen I'm...

    I don't even know what to think right now.

    My father and me got into it again. He grabbed my arm, lightly, which is a surprise coming from someone like him. Then I pushed him into the floor, well the tent. (Since we were outside.) It's impossible for me to remember much more than that let alone the details. I don't...

    The last thing he said to me was

    I come from a traditional chinese family.

    We don't live in the mainland. I guess I could say that I hate him so much that I want to get married simply to get away. I suppose a backstory is in order. He is an only child and so my grandmother babied him. He was raised to think that he is the male and therefore the lord of...

    I'm kind of confusing myself now.

    I know my dad is a horrible guy, and I know that he's hurt me in terrible ways but I...... miss him and love him. I feel so stupid for having these feelings because he treated me like total crap. But I cannot help it.
