Ok, I'll get straight to the point; I'm twenty-two years old and live with my father in an apartment, we suffered through a divorce and are just now years later picking up the pieces. I've as of lately completely stepped my game up and have "awoken" out of the box I was in previously, I'm starting to see the evil intentions in people and it scares me to death. As of right now I'm jobless and being supported by him, but trying my damn hardest to find a job I can pay the bills with to relieve him of any stress I'm causing him. I don't do drugs, I don't drink and I don't party often and when I do I am responsible about it. My father has a problem with money, he can't stop spending it on useless stuff, he has no drug or alcohol habits and makes a big wage. People are walking all over him left and right, I unintentionally without knowing it did so as well for years (I was conditioned to think it was alright). Now with me back in the big world dealing with people have realized exactly what is happening, but as the old story of the boy and the wolf goes he won't believe me and can't accept it, he is a sucker. We went to a Chinese restaurant the other day and talked a little shop, as the lady served us I heard her mumble under her breath "****ing idiot", something tells me this happens to him on a daily bases. I have tried my damn hardest to light up his darkness so to speak but it's damn near impossible, during an argument I ended up letting it slip and called him a fool which made him lose respect for me, I didn't let it slip until after I tried my hardest in every other possible tactic to let him know what was happening. He keeps trying to condition me to not care what people think, little conversations about not caring what people think, things like "Oh [enter my name here] it's just how the world works who cares" *as he goes and blows another chunk of his account. I love my old man to death and would do anything for him but he just won't believe that I have the brain to even support myself (I'm an extremely hard worker but am faced with a workplace shun out of my industry it's the bar business). I'm faced with the decision of either a) grabbing the first job I see and skipping out on him, or b) sticking it out to continue to work with him. People are out to get my dad, he is being treated like a fool by nearly everyone in his life. What do I do?
