You are the ruler of your life
You probably believe that the time when parents decided about their adult children’s decision was over and that today, every person decides what he want and when he want it. I believed that as well, but I was disappointed. Still, many parents make the important decision instead of their adult sons and daughters. Some minor aren’t even important, but having an influence on who is your son’s girlfriend or daughter’s boyfriend is simply, a problem! When they are 15 or even 18 years old, I can understand, but when they are grown people, a parent’s role should be history.
The main reason why this happens is because that person allows their parent to control him/her. There are many excuses like ‘’I am just a good child’’ or ‘’my parents are always right’’, but the truth is completely opposite. You and only you are the ruler of your life and not your parents. If you allow them to control you, they will do it forever, even when you have your own family. Many marriages end up because one of the spouses listen to his or her parents too much. Luckily, the solution is simple, although it looks hard. All you need is to stop listening to your parents.
Using some of the advice that they give you is recommended, after all, they have more experience in life, but listening to their every desire or advice isn’t. So, start living your life. It is yours and only yours! This means you will make a several mistakes, actually, you will make many of them, but this is a good thing. You will learn something and be prepared for the next time.
