Over­bear­ing fa­ther makes liv­ing at home ag­gra­vat­ing for his adult son

Rome News-Tribune - - EDITORIALS & OPINION - GARFIELD

Dear Abby: I’m a 34year-old man who lives with my fa­ther, who is 76 years old. I’m cur­rently with­out a job, but when I have one, I buy food and what­ever else is needed for the house. I be­lieve I’m do­ing my fair share.

I love my fa­ther dearly, but I can’t stand him as a per­son. He can be very rude and ver­bally abu­sive. He has told peo­ple we know very per­sonal things about me. When we’re vis­it­ing fam­ily, if I ask for some­thing to eat or drink, he’ll an­swer, “No! You don’t need any­thing.”

Dad played a ma­jor role in ru­in­ing a re­la­tion­ship with a woman I was dat­ing. I don’t in­vite any of my new friends over be­cause I know he’ll have some­thing sar­cas­tic to say. He also ac­cuses me of not I keep my mouth shut be­cause I need a place to live, but day by day, more and more, my rage is build­ing, and I want to tell him off. Help, please.
