Forums - Sony Discussion - Am I a bad person?

I come from a home of divorce and hated and didn't speak to my dad for years. I also did not get along with my mother and when she remarried I actually called up a social worker and asked the Government to put me in foster care. I really disliked my parents a ton for various reasons.

Anyways when I approached 18 years old I was getting along better with my mom as she lived a great distance away. I also forgave my dad and started talking to him again. Today I share expenses with my dad because neither of us make enough to survive on our own.

In the end I now have a great relationship with my sister , mother and dad. All it took was me being the bigger man. Sure I could have remained angry at them and continued to treat them the way they had treated me. But in the end if you just allow hatred and anger to rule your life you'll never get anywhere.

I also have a freeloader cousin who never pays for anything. He's 19 and he moved down to my city. He decided to go live with my grandparents. He doesn't pay rent or food and doesn't look for a job. He always asks people to buy him stuff including me. Of course last year I finally had it and I stuck my foot down. But you know what that just messed alot of stuff up.

However both himself and I talked it out since and he agreed never to ask me for anymore money or to buy him anything else. I agreed to talk to him again and he comes over to play games all the time. In the end I suggest you treat your brother like I did my cousin. Sure he freeloads just stick your foot down and say I won't give you anymore money.

If he's not taking your money and is actually sharing the bills. Then he's not really freeloading off of you. Also since you have not mentioned a wife maybe he is lonely at his own house? I know I would hate to live alone maybe he wants to be with you and his sis.

In the end family is very important and you shouldn't treat them like trash. I always play games with my younger sister and I even try to get my dad to play my games with me. I try to give everyone a chance to play. Also my mom has diabetes too, I try not to eat sugary items infront of her and if I do I usually let her have a small piece since her sugar levels won't go insaine over a small piece of cake. Maybe even just a bite.

It seems you don't know how to show compassion to other people. Just think what if my brother or sister or dad did treated me this way. If you wouldn't like to be treated that way then don't treat others that way! Love your neighbour as yourself as the famous saying goes!

I felt sorry for your brother...



Bad person? I don't know nearly enough about you to decide that, perhaps you have a slew of redeeming qualitites? Who knows. Anyway, I just wanted to chirp in that I understand the part about not being on speaking terms with a sibling, I haven't spoken a word with my little sister for nearly four years and can't stand to even be in the same room with her. I also barely have any contact at all with the rest of my family because of her.

Siblings, or family as a whole, do not automatically go well together.

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

well, if i were to go by those points alone, then yes, i could easily call you a douche. of course, you've probably done plenty of good things outside of those points and have some better sides to your personality then what's shown in there. From what i can see, all i can say is that you have some family issues.

geez, i really am a bad guy. >< well i realized that already prior to making this post. it's just that he had to go and buy a ps3 for himself that made me understand what i've been doing to people around the house. actually i only found out about it when my sister asked me:

"where is your FF7 CD",

and i replied "there is no CD, why?"

she said "i'm going to play it with <brother's> ps3"

i said "what ps3?"

she said "that one" and pointed towards another one right beside mine.

man, i felt like shit.

To the opening poster. Based on the information you've given us  I'd say the following. Incredibly selfish, condescending, and nasty? 100% yes!!!

I would really suggest you work on your relationship with your brother and sister. Explain how you've realized what you've been doing an actually work on your self. Of course they won't believe you though given how you've conducted yourself all this time so they'll be looking at your actions over a long period of time. Especailly to see if it's just all talk and guilt. I say this because relationships with your siblings are very important and to let them be destroyed over video games is beyond stupid I feel.

 



I dunno.

I hate my brother, but I'd still share amything with him if he asked. He's family. I kind of have to.

The thing about your sister... c'mon, dude. Just let her play the game. If she does get confused, she'll just stop and you'll have lost nothing.

The thing about your father... it was kind of funny.



Quem disse que a boca é tua?

Qual é, Dadinho...?

Dadinho é o caralho! Meu nome agora é Zé Pequeno!

Man, you're a douche. In my house I have to BEG for people to play video games with me, and your sister is offering herself to play and you do that. You need a punch in the face and a ban.



Above: still the best game of the year.

short answer: YES, with a "but..."

long answer: NO, with a "if..."



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

If something happens, you might be full of regrets afterwards.

There is still time for attunement.
