Basically, my family are all going on holiday from this thursday evening. We are driving up north for my brothers graduation (which I wanna go to) but then are also planning on driving further north to Scotland for a week. I genuinely don't want to go. My family do my head in very often, especially my dad who is very controlling.
One of the main reasons why I don't want to go is because it's a driving holiday and I don't get on with my dad very well. He just pisses me off so much but doesn't seem to acknowledge the way he behaves. Last year we also did a driving holiday abroad and it was one of the worst holidays I have been on.
I am an adult and should be able to decide whether I want to go or not, but every time I say that I don't want to go my dad just replies saying "he will enjoy it" without actually considering how I will feel. I know that I won't enjoy it and it will just make me feel 100x times worse than I do already. I go on every family holiday that we go on without saying anything whereas my younger brother can say "no" and they just let him get on with it, however if I say that, they just get annoyed at me and basically try and force me to go.
I am not trying to be selfish, but just want to take care of myself and my well-being.
What should I do? I was thinking that I could buy a single train ticket back home, but I know that they won't take no for an answer. I don't want things to get really awkward at home and I really don't want it to be me against my whole family either
Any help would be appreciated
