My dad went to work before I woke up and came home when I was asleep. Then on weekends he was away. Then he was supposed to take me every second weekend but he skipped. Then he was supposed to take me four weeks a year but he skipped half of it. Now he lives in another state and supposedly can't afford to see me. The few times he ever does see me, he doesn't talk to me. When he does talk to me, it's to tell me all about how my mother - who at least lets me live with her - is a witch. He is constantly preaching Christianity to me like I should listen to HIM. I'm Unithest. He doesn't like a single thing about me and has described me to my brothers as "morbid and depressing". He apparently thinks I'm disturbed too. He thinks I'm an ENFJ. I know my dad but I DO NOT like him.

Otherwise our relationship is pretty good considering I never have to talk to him or see him except for those two or three weeks a year that he thinks he can impede on my life just so he can see my brothers.

My relationship with my parents is very strained and...political, I suppose. All of us like to pretend nothing is wrong.

I picked 2. My father and I fought a lot, but mostly because we had vastly differing political views. Also, my father was becoming an intolerant, conspiracy-theorist bigot, which was absolutely unacceptable to me.

CordiINTJ:

What's a unithest?

And yes, you do sound a little depressed, but that's not surprising since your Dad sounds like a jerk!
I'm fine though, it's easy to sound depressed online XD I ignore my dad just as much as he ignores me. Whenever I see him I try to get money off him, so far this year, that's $40. The less he's in my life, the less his pathetic existence concerns me, INTJness YAY!!!!

And a unithest is a messed up combination of universalist and athieist, it's simply respecting religion but chosing not to participate until particiapation is fun :)
