RE: You are someone we don’t know anymore, your values and morals are not something we are proud of. Quite honestly, we are disappointed in the direction you have taken in your life.
This is why I am currently unable to respect or love either of you. Condemnation like the above statement make this impossible. I would be very willing to meet with a family therapist as a group, because I feel an objective third party is necessary. You guys don’t understand a word I say and I think you make no sense…that’s a stalemate. We need someone to resolve this other then ourselves. If you truly care, I’d think you’d want to take this productive step. – David
David… G’ma called to wish mom a happy birthday this morning and said you had called, but your minutes were virtually gone. Don’t know how they got burned so quick, but we’ll add on after we get home on Sunday.We’ve gone the family therapy route before. Mom even got lip there. This is not an option. I’ve got mine now and it’s enough, thank you. Your call ended the other night with mom saying you didn’t regret the barrage of previous swearing in front of her. This is the kind of attitude we can’t “listen to” anymore. A friend of mine at work has had it rough, but he still works hard to set his kids up for a future. He told his son recently, “a boy does what he wants to do. A man does what he has to do.”
“Your call ended the other night with mom saying you didn’t regret the barrage of previous swearing in front of her.” I told mom that I would curse in response to being attacked if you were to harm me again. As is to be expected, she twisted this. “We’ve gone the family therapy route before. This is not an option.” Wrong again. You brought me to see some unprofessional dick who called me an asshole. It was also only three little sessions, and I was mainly brought there because “I was the problem”. The family has never sat down together with a therapist. But if you don’t want to bother trying this, then evidently you don’t care. “a boy does what he wants to do. A man does what he has to do.” How sweet and utterly cliche. According to that I’m being more of a man in needing this family fixed by supporting the idea of group therapy. But since you don’t want to, I guess that makes you the boy. I wonder then what better, productive solution you have in mind? Then again, you’d probably would have come up with one by now. Hm… so that leaves 2 options: therapy or quitting. Nice to know my father is a quitter. Thanks for another inaccurate email. – David
