My father says that I have disappointed him and I am a failure and a loser because I don't exactly know what I want to do career-wise yet. He said that he's ashamed of me because I decided that I didn't want to live and work in Washington D.C. for a big banking corporation or politics or something in that field. I am just so sick of being torn down for MY life choices and feeling the way that I do. He wants me to move to a huge city and become some famous I don't know how to describe it, "mover and shaker" but I keep trying to tell him that I need time. Am I wrong here? I really need an outside opinion. I went to university on full scholarship, took a double major and a minor (taking 21 credit hours or more a semester most semesters), won a prestigious internship in the nation's capital and it's like it still isnt'y enough for him! When we he just let me be?! The stress of trying to live up to his unreasonably high goals is really stressing me out and depressing me.
