Please type an ancestor of mine:
He was a daydreamer as a child, created stories to entertain his family. Interested in religion, philosophy, art, literature, history, economics.
As teenager, deep hurt over not being able to satisfy the expectations of those closest to him made him deeply cynical about life and people.
As an adult he was stubborn, quiet, laconic, could be a bit of a slob and was lazy when he could be but he always fulfilled the expectations that mattered most especially since he worked in a family business and the people he cared about most relied on his doing his job right.
Loyalty to family and a disgust for their dysfunctions created conflicts in his mind that kept him in mental limbo over whether to keep working for the family business or strike out on his own for most of his early adult years.
He was always sure he could make more logical, better decisions than those around him but no one respected him enough to listen, even people who relied and benefited heavily on his good judgment.
He allowed sentiment for one particular person who was very important to him, prevent him from being ruthless in business when it would have been to his advantage and to others. He was angry at himself over this and evidentually made a sudden and bold decision to push sentiment aside and do as his own inner guidence told him to.
At mid life he woke up and started taking life by horns. People around him were stunned. He believed in his own inspirations no matter what and prevailed where others failed. He provoked much bitterness and jealousy in some and others developed new respect for him.
