Lost confidence in my job offer
My brother stirred up trouble again. During dinner, he made comments which made me lose confidence about my job offer. He said he would have done something like the Royal Mail because I would have gotten more. He said he thought I wanted to be a graphic designer and commented about me going into different jobs because I am taking a temporary job. My dad assumed that the staff would take advantage. So, I felt I should not have taken a temporary job and went straight into a design job. My brother claimed that I have wasted my graphic design degree because I will do a temporary job until I find a graphic design job. He asked me if I knew what the job was like and told me I would be outside, implying he did not think I could do it. He asked what I would do in the future if someone said something and asked if I would be upset to criticise me for being upset. He kept saying out loud look, that I was upset with my parents. He said to my mum that she should have said something to me about the job, and she responded I would get upset if she told me that it was a temporary job. My dad assumed that the staff would take advantage of me. Overall, I have lost confidence in the job. The whole situation just got brushed under the carpet like it never happened. I overheard my dad and mum conversing about something else while I was upstairs hurting. I have been feeling I am supposed to have complete control of the effect of words because of past experiences.
