    Politics :(

    My father and I have an awful relationship based on one primary point: Politics. I know this isn't supposed to get in the way of relationships, familial or not, but it's at the point where I have a feeling he doesn't even respect my point of view. Dad was...

    ...but my father is a coward.

    He made mistakes as we all do, but instead of trying his best to protect his own from these mistakes, he blamed the very ones that loved him. He has taken everything beautiful in his life and has painted it with hate. He has bullied his children and beat every wife he's had. But...

    I've come to realise the damage is unrepairable. She is who she is now. A narcissist can't be changed. I only make her worse than she is being who I am.
