What is a father's weakpoint?|

The picture shown above are both my individual classrooms. Over 10 years ago, I decided to be an English trainer in my spare time. From then on, I have spent most of weekends and holidays giving lessons apart from my full-time job. I had no alternative at that time, but to stretch myself to provide for my family. I once had 12 lessons a week, teaching 50 kids or so. I seldom suffer from insomnia, I am often amazingly sleepy with dark rings around my eyes. I think If I'm too soft with myself my wife and my daughter will never respect me. Personally, more often a fatal delusion in my mind is the need of accepting care, love and attention from others. If I can always guard against expecting others, including my family to understand me, or, care for my feelings, I may be more attentive and refocus quickly.

Every one wants attention, care and love from the people whom they love or care.....it is very natural...only thing is that the intensity of the want may differ from person to person! As a father to expect to understand you is not an uncommon thing and you have full right to do so! God bless and have a nice time dear @ClayNCE ! God bless us all!

Asking for love and understanding is basic human need. If one is not appreciated, withdrawal sets in. Tell them they are not giving you your due. It's not too much to ask.

Expecting certain behaviors from others often leads to disappointment, so it is best no to expect others to behave the way we think we should. So glad you are on myLot!!!

That's absolutely right. Looked at from that point of view, your advice is easier to understand.

As a father, my weakness is my wife. As like my wife to our daughter. As my daughter to me. It just loops to circle with my family so that everyone would hold to each other. Cause we are both the weakness and strength of each other. Just as my wife is stronger than me, that my daughter is stronger than my wife that I am to my daughter. ;-) Though it is maybe just in me.

I would at least hope they would care for your feelings. If nothing else that would be good for me.
