I have an older sister and my dad treats her better than me. I can't figure out why, because I haven't been any worse than her. One day I asked my parents which career choice sounded more like "me" and the first thing he said was "Well, there's something you don't realize about yourself..." (He always says that, and I know he's about to say something negative to me when he does). Then he said "The thing is, you lack ambition." "You've always been lazy at what you do." He went on about it, and I disagreed with him. He's been saying things like that to me since I was 10 years old, and I never understood why. He then argued with me and I said "I'm not lazy, and I am ambitious or I wouldn't be wanting to go to college and have a career if I was." Then he said "Why, so you can work at McDonalds after you finish?" Then he called me stubborn for not listening to him....

Tell him if he can't encourage you for what your already doing, then you don't want to hear what he has to say. Pointing out your negative characteristics will only bring you down. I would tell him to go have ice cream with his favorite daughter & leave you alone. I would not handle that very well at all. Don't bother searching for acceptance in him, you may find it, but you may not. Find acceptance within yourself, don't worry about what HE thinks you should do. Do it yourself & prove him wrong. Actions speak loud. Show him your ambitious without having to tell him.
