Why Do Some People Never See Good In Others?

12

I've been wondering,why some people don't see the good in others, they always emphasize on your bad side ( weaknesses). I believe nobody is perfect, everybody has his/her bad side. That's why we strive to improve everyday. My father always emphasize on my failures. I remember vividly in secondary school, whenever I come back with my results, I will have As,Bs, and C's. He will jump the As and start criticizing my Cs, saying I'm not serious, I'm not trying. That stuff demoralises one always. I had to start editing my results to As so that he wouldn't shout at me , even then he wouldn't say a word of encouragement, he will just look at it and give me back till when I was caught and he gave me the beating of my life. Some people are very good in finding fault in others and belittling them. I'm in my final year in uni and our results was released and I had an issue in a course, I'm very sure it was a mistake (computation error) and I was trying to rectify it so I called to inform him if he can speak with the lecturer involved as it is usually done. He scolded me on phone even after all my explanation, I was so down at that point and I texted him a long text telling him how hard I have been trying my best in school, I haven't repeated a year, some of my mates are in lower levels, even people that got admission before me. Some have withdrawn to other departments (it's a medical course) and some people were served 2 years suspension letter in their final year, I'm saying all this because I'm grateful to have come to this point successfully, but he doesn't see it that way. I told him I'm disappointed in him in the text. He was angered by the word and sent another text calling me a bastard and said I should never call him again. Imagine explaining to him and expecting some encouragement and hope and he lambasted me as if it's my fault, this is something that can happen to any student. I tried calling and found out he actually blocked my number. My father has issues, he has some personality disorder, I'm sure, he never sees good in anyone, he always criticizes any job you do, he never encourages anyone, you can never please him, there's nothing you would do that would please him, this is something I've observed. He always like to appear very nice and good in the eyes eyes of other people especially strangers. Someone should connect the dot of this personality disorder. I'm thinking it's narcissism. He doesn't even know how one survive and manage to pass in medical school. This is my story, manage my story, I'm still a newbie in writing.
