Background Information: I was a fuck up in high school. I didn't try and was lucky to graduate. After graduating I worked in a resturant for a while. I decided the average work force wasn't for me and that I'm capable of more. So I told my dad I want to go to college. He said "I don't think college is for you, go to tech school or search in the paper for a job" Despite what he said I decided to enroll on my own my parents never went to my school. After a few months I really decided to work hard. I took on 18 credit hours instead of the usual 15 credits because I want to move and the quicker I finish school the quicker I can move. So besides taking on 18 credit hours I got my first real girl friend, and also got a good job at a small business. I also lost a ton of weight due to exercise. I work my ass off. I'm motivated I stay up all night some times just to complete assignments, I work on my own truck to save money, I buy my own stuff and I don't seem to get any respect. My brother on the other hand who spends my dads money lavishly, doesn't work on his own car or anything like that gets a ton of respect because everything comes natural to him while I have a learning disability. My dad works for a huge corperation and makes over 200k a year and has been in the business over 20 years. So the other day my dad and I are talking and I said something like "well hopefully when I move you can hook me up with an entry level job at one of your old companies" (his old companies are located where I want to move) he said to me "theres really nothing you can do at those companies, just open your own business". well thanks alot dip shit open my own business yeah ok that would be lovely if I had any advice/ back up money. He always shoots down the idea of him helping me through one of his connections. He has a ton of connections and I feel insulted and worthless because he won't even make an attempt to help me get hired or put me in some direction. I'm not asking to be a CEO I just need alittle help getting my foot in the door. His lack of faith in me has caused me alot of trouble (I've been drinking more) and I'm tempted to get back with my ex because she supports me even though my family doesn't but its a bad relationship. So what do I do. Most people say fuck him but I really could use his help. I can't talk about it with him he gets very defensive. What should I do?
