And I had a discussion.
Or rather, I screamed at him.
I told him exactly why our family doesn't work.
I told him that it was his fault.
Oh my god... What have I done?
Can't you just apoligize?
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
That's part of the reason why our family doesn't work...
We can't apologize to one another. Ever. And if we can, we don't... For reasons I won't get into.

Sounds like a pretty "normal" family... at least I think most families tend to be factories for neurosis anyway.
factories for neurosis
Is this an original creation from Max?
its time you made it work by being the first to apologize in the family. It only takes the first step to make changes you know. Anyhow...Sorry you and your dad don't hit it off too good. I too had a father who I could not talk to, he was abusive in the verbal sense not physical. Now that he is gone, I look back and see how if I had only made the first move, that maybe things may have been different. I see how he did truly love me, and cared about me. Being a father myself I find my self doing the same things he did, for the same reasons...Love. Sit back and observe for a while then step up to the plate and take the first step...Good luck. OFB
Genius is not a sign of intelligence, but rather
that of common sense. Humor is the best pain pill.
When we apologize, all it does is cause more pain. Father can be an emotionally abusive man.
