Toxic relationship with father
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

My father is a typical Indian dad. He has never been very affectionate with me or my brother and is extremely critical of everything we do. I'm grateful to him for raising us and providing us with all basic amenities when we were younger but that's as far as our relationship goes. I decided to pursue a career in Geography instead of Engineering and that disappointed my father. Even years after he has not let it go. I'm having a hard time finding a job right now and everyday he taunts me over the fact that I picked a career with less scope and hence cannot earn anything. I'm already upset about my joblessness but his words further sadden me, I feel angry at myself and at him for never supporting me
