Spanning generations in HVAC

My dad and mom own a heating and cooling company that has been in our family for a lot of generations. I have regularly known that my dad wanted to keep the HVAC company in our family, but I don’t know if I want to be in the HVAC business for the rest of my life. I have been working with my family since the time I turned 14, I am now 35 and ready for a break. I suppose that a lot of young adults would be lucky to be set up with a job, but I just don’t know I can do it. I am my parents oldest kid so I suppose that if I don’t take over the HVAC business, then they will have to sell the company at their age & that is the last thing that they want to do. I tried to tell my dad this once, however he wouldn’t listen to me & told me that I was being a selfish bum. I don’t know I can run this HVAC business & I wish I had another brother that could run it & take the pressure off of me. I know I am just going to have to sit him down & tell him the truth. I absolutely want to go to college & learn new trades, but I don’t know my parents will support this idea. Hopefully, once I have that extreme talk with them they will see where I am coming from!
