I love my dad, but I can't stand him?

Asked by rockfan (2988 points ) 2 months ago

Everything about him annoys me, the way he talks (he has a muddled Brooklyn accent and he over pronounces everything), the way he eats, his awkward physical motions, his insensitivity to different cultures, his oblivious sense of sentimentality and his narrow-mindedness towards music and movies.

And I know all these reasons are completely trivial, but I still can’t get over it, and it’s hard for me to even enjoy being around him. What also bugs me is that I look exactly like him.

He’s a loving person, so I feel really bad. Is anyone else in this kind of situation with a family member?
