My father have big dreams of doing start ups and creating businesses but all of his ideas have failed.
My mother was the one supporting the family and pouring money into his ventures. Watching my mother worry about finances and putting food on the table, on top of taking care of him, me and my sibling, had made me start to resent my father for being a useless dreamer.
Has a mindset of a MCP
He doesn’t even do anything at home. Typical MCP and expects us to serve him when he’s around just because he’s a man. He’s not a man in my eyes. My mother is a superhero because she stepped up and became the breadwinner instead. She did everything that he didn’t do for the family.
His ego wouldn’t let him accept that he’s not cut out to be a boss of anything so he would always boast of all the ideas that he have. He has worked part time or temp jobs on an irregular basis because my mother has grown frustrated taking care of this man child.
The least he could do is earn his own pocket money. Both my parents grew bitter and my dad moved to some woman’s house. I know he cheated on my mum too. They finally got a divorce. I’m so happy for my mom to be free of him.
Gave him money to do business so he won’t disrupt the lives of my mum and sis
When I’ve started working, my dad tried to make me invest in his businesses. I expected him to flop so I only gave him what I can afford to sign off else he would be bothering my mother or my sister instead.
Whatever little he made or ever earned he would splurge it on himself. In my eyes, he’s just a donor of his ‘cream’ instead of a father.
