Was this mean to say?Watch
Growing up I began to practice drawing and painting learning about different techniques. I liked writing stories and drawing pictures to go with my writing.
I got a grade A in art and design GCSE and went to study art and design in college.
I'm in my 20s now and I graduated in a design course at university. I hope to get a job within design. Whilst at uni I had a head injury and my mind was a mess, I had to do the rest of my studies at home But I still kept pushing and I finished my course and I did graduate with a really good degree.
I am always grateful for my brothers help and guidance he has given me and still continues to offer me advice. However it was mostly me who continued to learn and push further in my career.
My brother and I have a 4 year age gap.
So any way with my dad, he basically told me about my brothers talent of being really art and design. Then my dad said to me "Everyone has a talent, Bu I don't know what your talent is because you just copied from your brother" I didn't say anything because I was really speechless
Was this a mean thing to say? Be Kind
In my opinion, I would be offended by that mean comment. Yes you may have been in awe of your brothers work but its an amazing talent that both you and your brother share. You may have started of copying his work and learning from him but once you get older you discover your own flare. Your dad should be so proud that both you and your brother have this incredible gift. Even though you had a head injury you persevered and got yourself an amazing degree. It was really unfair of your dad to say that but you shouldn't let it dishearten you in any way. Stay strong and maybe speak to your dad about it. Good luck and I hope you get a job within design soon. All the best x🙂😃
