My dad would always compare me with my younger siblings while growing up. Every single time, all I heard from him was, “Why can’t you be as successful as them?” “You are supposed to set the example” “you are so lazy they work 10x harder than you”

I don’t know dad. Maybe because I had to start working at 15 coz you couldn’t pay for school for 3 kids coz your ex-wife drank all the money away or gave it to her kid. Maybe if I had the time to do homework or study instead of working nights on a fake ID you provided I would have had better grades and wouldn’t have had to spend my entire adult life in retail or food. —BorealusTheBear
