My father act harsh and critical towards me while growing up and his behavior damaged my self-esteem pretty badly. And he still is a critical person today. I don’t have a close relationship with him and I don’t want to. I firmly believed that we shouldn’t get close to individuals whose behaviors harms our mental health and well-being. This includes family too. I can’t have close relationships with everyone and I’m fine with that. I get along with my father and that’s good enough for me. 🙂
