Exclamation i give up - February 2nd 2012, 10:40 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

If you read my last post "NUMB" you know what this is about if not then answer this question: if I don't like or want to play sports does that make me lazy? I recently finished a small arguement with my dad who wants me to play soccer and when I told him I'm not into sports he called me lazy and asks why I played to begin with and I said Cu's he wanted me to so he says sometimes you need a push and that I'm still lazy so yeah I feel like I have the horrible persons award Cu's hes making me feel like the bad guy so I'm done fighting and I'm just gonna suck it up and play if you have something to say PLEASE COMMENT and don't be afraid to be honest Cu's if I'm in the wrong here id like to know how.

If you don't want to do a sport well... it's not required.
You shouldn't be forced to.
I don't think it makes you lazy @ all.
My Grandma (i live with her) is like this.
She won't leave me alone until I do what she wants.

If you don't like to play soccer, then you shouldn't have to. It's not you being lazy at all. Have you tried explaining it more to your dad that you simply aren't interested in it? Parents can sometimes get stuck on an idea (especially if it was his dream to play soccer) and not want to let go of it. If he still wants you involved in something, could you maybe compromise and pick something you would like to do instead of the soccer? In that way you are doing something you like, and he won't think you are lazy because you are still doing something. Make you both happy sort of thing.

I hope this makes sense to you, and I hope it works out.

"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour."
William Blake - Auguries of Innocence
