Supportive Dad???- I wish - March 28th 2009, 02:06 PM

Why cant he just be pleased for me, i got myself a number of job interviews travelled over the uk for them and when one finally offered me a job all he could do was say a weak well done then point out all the bad points and basically moan that he wouldnt see me in over 6 months it his fault he chose to move across to the other side of the world.

Ive decided im just gonna do what i want; its only 6 months it will be an amazing experience and its not like i need his help. So....

Yay i got myself a new job!!!

Congratulations on getting the job, Lou! I'm really happy for you

From what it sounds like, your dad just doesn't want to admit you're growing up. And his daughter is growing up and going away- he's got some right to moan! That's probably his way of saying he'll miss you a lot. That doesn't mean he's not proud.

Enjoy the experience. I'll bet you're going to have a blast.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Well done, hope it all works out for you.

Like Nat said, it's very hard to accept that your children are growing up. They have been by your side for SO long, letting them go and live their own life is tough. His negativity is caring... If he truely did not care, or did not support you he wouldn't even give the idea of you moving away the time of day. Your parents have more life experience and it's their job to share that with you. He is just warning you of the troubles you may encounter along the way. Once he gets settled with the idea of you having your independence I am sure you will see a great change.
