Most parent naturally want what is best for their children. I didn’t agree with much of what my parents set forth for me, but I knew they were doing it out of love. I took into account their own childhoods, the time in which they grew up, and other influences that made them who they are. They thought they were preparing me for life.
Unless they are truly harmful or psychotic, give your parents a break. Listen to what they have to say and then decide if the answers are right or wrong for you and what you want from your life.
