My father... and I don't know if I act like the wise man who seeks advice or the man-child who seeks approval...

My father died a year ago and some twisted part of my mind still seeks his approval; despite the fact that I rationally know he was a malignant narcissist who turned my brain to scrambled eggs.

I need to "Eternal Sunshine" him.

Sorry about your father...
We grow up a little more when we understand our parents are as imperfect as we are... the trick is that they want us to be better than us but the more we seek their approval or dread their disappointment the more it turns our brain to "scrambled eggs"...
It's a real bouillabaisse of emotions when it comes to parents/children relationships...

While some of my image choices are humorous, the options themselves are not intended to be jokes.

Honestly, I'm not confiding often, I'm keeping my private struggles for me. But when I do confide, I whisper it to myself.

I think turning to religion is covered by the previous suggestion of God.

I don't want to go too specific; most voters will likely be choosing one of the existing options.

I'm gonna lose a lot of "dude cred" but, since the whiskey bottle wasn't an option, I answered honestly - my (significantly younger) sister.
