My father has no sensitivity to my feelings. How do I get him to develop compassion and empathy?
He is not a bad person or anything but lacks empathy. He had empathy on me as a child so I know he knows how to have it but in adulthood if I am hurting he ignores me and does not respond to texts. I have begun just avoiding him unless it is a family celebration.

He's a narcissist. They are sociopaths without emotions. They never change. They have a reprobate mind they've been rejected by God. Try to forget he even exists. He's nothing but a robot.

You cant force a person to be empathetic towards you. He acts the way he feels is appropriate to the situation, and nothing you do will change that. You just have to learn to accept it
