A conversation well rant my sister had the other day has been on my mind lately. I guess my dad was at her house and was doing his thing where he makes fun of people and calls them a baby and all that to the neighbor kid that was at her house. He did this to me growing up all the time, to various degrees. Anyways, when the neighbor kid left I guess my sister just exploded at my dad about how it’s not his place to be harsh like that and how it’s one of his major short comings and how he’s such a bully. How he was being a bully and all this that and the other including being cruel, harsh, negative, critical, and a coward. Anyways, eventually my dad was like “Well, it’s just the neighbor kid and he needs to man up and it doesn’t matter.” And my sister said “What about Marci, well how did that work out for you” and I guess then there was awkward silence.
I’ve always seen my dad as being verbally and emotionally abusive, but as a bully and “cruel” not till it was brought up the other night. I guess I should bring up this with my case manager or the therapist.
