I think they do but my cousin claims they don't even remotely match.
2. How would you go about dealing with someone who always points out the negative things about you, and constantly makes you feel bad about yourself?
I generally try to avoid my father because he always points out every single thing wrong with me. Lately he's been bitching about how I've been gaining weight, which I actually haven't been, but he never once noticed/mentioned when I lost 35lbs between september and november. It's not just the weight thing though it's every single thing. I seriously just want to kick him in the face or cry about it, the latter isn't a rare occurrence. I'm starting to wish I had applied in time and I'd be going somewhere far away for college.
