He's old and angry, never misses a chance to cut me or any of my other family memebeta down. I'm having a hard time keeping my patience and empathy. Unfortunately we all live together so i can't just "never speak to him again"
I'm trying very hard to be empathetic and inclusive but I keep getting verbally slapped in the face. Doesn't matter how kind I am- he looks for something to criticize. Most of the time I ignore because I know he loves conflict. I hate conflict since I grew up in a situation living with another male who was constantly aggressive & abusive.
I'm having a hard time...any pearls of wisdom would be appreciated. In case it matters I am 49, my Dad is 81 and we all live together with my adult children & husband. The home is large enough that he has his own space (living room, kitchen & bedroom)
Give me strength! I have none today
