Narcissistic childhood friends still involved in my life

Thanks for the comment. I do have some issues with my parents. I almost feel bad bringing it up becaue they were both there to pay for me and raise me. Just classic middle class issues really.

My dad was emotionally pretty unavailable. Never really affectionate and always very serious. Definitely not a people pleaser. I was also thr middle child of several boys. He would also hit me to discipline me. Not that unusual really for the time and it is not like he punched me or hit me with a belt. But he would get enraged and it would be scary for me. I feel detatched from him now and it took me a long time to get over that.

I feel awkward around him still. The conversation doesn't really flow well.

Does that tell you anything?
