How could I do it?
My dad's really weird. The estrangement between us is the source of a lot of guilt. Partly because nobody else in the family can relate to him, so it feels like a duty to try to do it.
I don't think I've ever had a real conversation with him. It's usually a one-sided thing from his direction. He goes off on these diatribes, it's tiresome. The problem is he's so stubborn & close-minded. Whereas my failing is that I don't have the ability or the courage to talk to him directly, knowing it would just cause an argument & I've already had enough arguments with him.
Maybe comedy is one possibility. He can be pretty hilarious even though his sense of humor doesn't encompass irony, he takes everything seriously, & takes everything literally.
I know every person is different, you guys don't know him, but there's a general INTJ aroma that I pick up from most of the INTJs here. So what I'm saying is you guys remind me of my dad, & I'm gonna get this straight from the horse's mouth
