I don't see my parents often, because we live far away from each other. When visiting this weekend it turned out my dad believes in wild conspiracy theories around Covid and more. We had a discussion, an argument about it and it only ended because my mom could not stand us getting angry. We didn't talk about it after that and I feel this stands between us and I'm disappointed and sad. I even thought about leaving early. I always thought highly of my dad and now, I don't know.
