Recent posts on the main sub are making me wonder how MRP ideas work with parents/siblings.
I grew up with a beta dad and a Catholic guilt wielding control freak of a mom. Frequently says stuff like "This would all be better if I just wasn't here.. you guys just want me to leave" so that we'll supplicate.
I moved back in with them 5 months ago to avoid a commute for my 6 month internship and also began taking the red pill. About a month in, shit got really bad so I just moved back to my place and commute to work. I went pretty red pill Rambo on my way out, instead of fogging and being aloof like I'd done before. Told them about what I was working on too - I fucked up.
Recently, I went with them and my brother for a trip to have family bonding. Mom pulls the same shit and so I ignored her while they supplicated. Back at the motel, she gets sad cause attention was elsewhere again and leaves crying. I suggest we let her soothe herself, and she'll come back. My dad suggests I "stop with the tough guy act," and chases after her.
Now I'm only 6 months in so my new attitude is going to seem like an act to the people that raised me. I am assertive, more muscular, and get shit done now but also tend to be too aggressive. Will this family dynamic change over the years as I improve and kill my ego? I am cutting contact to a minimum because I tend to revert or go Rambo when I'm around them and it fucks with my progress. I don't want to have to cut them off forever but will if I have to. My father allowing this behavior isn't my problem. However, I fucked up by telling them what I'm doing and DEERing here and there.
For reference, I'm 21 and taking things too quickly.
Edit: I think a better question would be once my value is high enough can I lead my family despite another man leading it the wrong way?
