You know what you're right.
There's no use in blaming my grandfather for having an opinion. That's all it is.
I agree with you that yes... I've been struggling with my inner self for quite some time.
But yes. I suppose ranting about his opinions like an angry school boy isn't the solution.

The solution is just to work on myself and I guess realize that whatever opinions my grandad has are only to help me... in his view anyways.

This is good. Therapeutic almost.

Thanks for at least seeing my side, but also for helping me view the situation in a clearer light.

You need to either keep a very honest journal or find a friend/spouse but get that shit out of your head if you don't it will be toxic!

In my excel journal it has very very honest thoughts/feelings on whats going on throughout the day. I don't always share that journal because it is slightly more personal but a public journal will help you a lot. These guys might come off as mean people but the majority will gladly help out if you ask and you put in the work.
