So I love my dad and he wants the best for me, but I hate the life lectures, though I haven't received one going on 2 years. Some of the stuff he would say was completely off the wall. One time he told me at druggies have something to show (I don't do drugs but I was like wtf?). Another time he told me I am like an amoeba and I just exist (this one really hurt me a lot). Other times he tells me I don't have the looks and that was super hurtful too cause I don't have a high self esteem to begin w/. Anyways people have told me that sometimes parents don't really know what they are saying, but idk. I want a parent's perspective on this. Thanks! My personal opinion is that my dad means what he says cause he seems to think about before he lectures me.
No Im always open, honest and explaining things down to the T even if I am ignored (which is normally the case).
