Parents.โ™ฅ๏ธ

Heya..Not in the mood for greetings today, so putting my point straightaway..

What do you feel about parents?..They are the bestest gift of God.. They are actually God in disguise.. They sacrifice all of their comfort for us..

But lately I have realised (I dont know if you have or haven’t) that parents force their dreams on us.. They want us to live the life that wasn’t available to them.. What they want from us is to live our lives, the way they want us to..To listen to everything they say..They want us to put aside all our dreams, aspirations, ambitions to fulfil their constant demands of scoring and getting a comfortable lifestyle..

When we are born, well then they can’t ask for anything cause we are too young to listen to them..But when are young, they control us in the forms of punishments and praises..

You completed your homework on time, now you are a good girl”..

“You didn’t greet Banglore wali taiji (the aunt from Banglore), how illmannered are you?..”

Score good marks in your board exams”

“Get admitted to a decent college”

“Mrs. Kakkar’s daughter is having a package of 12 lacs, why are you always redeeming in front of all my friends?”

“When I was about your age, I used to cook so well”

“You have been provided everything na, so you won’t understand its worth”..

And when we get older, when we try to neglect all their words, they try to blackmail.

Your father won’t be able to digest all your deeds..Something bad will happen to him..

We are only asking you to meet the boy.. We are quite broadminded we aren’t asking you to marry him..

All we want is for you to be happy..

We have been through your age..We have seen the world more than you.

Unfortunately, parents think marriage is the magical solution to every problem around us..The only we now are being asked of is tosettledown…

I wish I could someday explain all my feelings to my parents..More than that what I crave for is them to understand..I know they will never know what it feels with everyone to love you but no one to understand..

  2. It is so true! From my both positions as daughter and as parent I can say that our parents cannot see that a child is another person with his own life. They see a child as their own creation and sometimes as a “property”. They try to make their dreams true through their children. It is the way they know from their parents and so on. Thank you for sharing a wonderful post! โค

  3. Ok…so here I think I need to intervene๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ well I can relate to each words of yours n ohhh yes really I can…..๐Ÿ˜Ž At some stage stage back I was shouting at the top of my voice when same things were happening to me…๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜กmy questions were like why I am being forced to do things..๐Ÿ˜ why I have to choose my profession according to their thoughts…๐Ÿ˜คwhy to choose someone for life according to anyone’s preference…๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒthe one n only question was WHY…๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜คWell I think it is that stage when we want to do n explore things at our own preferance and don’t want anyone to interfere with our things no matter who they are…๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž but dear it’s just a stage when it shall pass you will realise you have just over hyped it…which I can relate and understand now…๐Ÿ˜‡ see parents don’ t dominate us it’s just they care for us and don’t want us to go wrong…yes they are wrong when they are over protective but still a parent will always be a parent and they will keep their kids in their prime thoughts no matter at what stage you are upto then …๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ parenting itself is a tough job…we don’t realise it when we say that if they have brought us in this world Itโ€™s their responsibility to take care of us…although once we are grown up we don’t stick to such statement and find their interference to be annoying…๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆjust think for a second with a calm mind who is not dominated in this world …in school we are dominated by teachers …in college by seniors…in family by elders…in job by boss…in country by political decisions….Well domination is every where dear..it’s just at times we ignore it and at time we make a hell out of it…๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ As I have told you its a stage and you will realise it only after few years what dilemma they were upto when they were nagging after your life for everything you did ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ so till then just take a deep breath and try to control your “WHY’S …๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. i feel that many parents treat the daughters differently than the sons. yes, in many cultures, the sons are more important. but this should not be.
    but overall, i feel parents just want the best for their children and forget that it is their life, not the parents. parents should be a guide, a resource for their children and not a dictator. they have planted the seed, let it grow. cultivate it. and as the child, be mindful of the parents place. listen. absorb. and try to understand the job they undertook to have children is not an easy one. understanding is needed by both sides. and when the time comes, try and remember what your childhood was like. so that you can be the parent your child wishes you to be.
