pressure about soccer - June 28th 2009, 04:54 PM

ok so i stopped playing soccer after playing for 9 years. im sure it was the right decision to stop playing cause i dont love it and i dont want it controling my life. now my dad is talking to me saying i really hope in a couple of months you miss soccer and go back to it. thats what he is hoping for. what i am hoping for is to not miss it enough to that i want to play and it controls my life again. i may miss it but i would only want to play with friends. but hes hoping i want to play again, he doesnt care that maybe im just done with it. what should i do about this? what should i say to him? i dont think he wants to realize that i dont love it anymore.

These kinds of things are always difficult, you should do what you think is best for you and explain to him (again) that you really don't want to do it anymore. He may still want you to or wish you wanted to, but it's your life and your choice.

I think you should simply tell your dad that you're not as interested in soccer anymore.
I'm sure that your dad simply wants you to have something in your life that you enjoy doing. Perhaps try to find an activity that you enjoy but that does not dominate your life as you say soccer has? Best of luck
