I hate football now but do continue for my Dad. Watch
I've hated football for 3 or 4 years now and have grown sick of the constant stress and commitment I've put towards it. I've missed loads of parties and social opportunities to play football at a good level for a couple years. I've recently managed to balance social life and football with school but I dread going to football. I have a couple times mentioned wanting to quit playing football at a high level to play with my friends who play at a lower level so I can enjoy it again but my dad hates this idea and goes in a mood with me whenever i mention it. I feel stuck playing the sport I used to enjoy and dont know what to do.
Should I keep playing just to keep my dad happy or do I stop and try to enjoy myself again?
If you really hate it - quit it. No one should force you in any way to do or love something which you don't enjoy enough. I am so sorry, but what does it mean 'for my dad'? It sounds like a totalitarianism.
