When Was The Last Time You Disobey Your Parents?

All my life i've been obeying my parents what they have told me, on what i have to do and what i have not to do.. I remember one time, when there's a guy courting me, he's okay with me but in my parents he's not.. my mom and dad told me to let go of this guy.. because they dont want the guy for me.. and they won this game.. Now that i'm already graduated from college, and still thinking what i want to do in life, my parents are still there, telling me what to do.. and i hate it.. dictating me what to do? this is my life, i know parents knows best, but in times like this i want to stand in my own feet.. face my life with no hesitation.. i'm sure that i dont want to listen to them.. but what should i do? all advice are welcome here.. thanks in advance.. have a nice day!

Hi! Parents knows best. But you need to stand on your own. you are not alone honey! We are on the same shoe. I know the feeling of being dictated of what to do or not. Sometimes makes me feel like stupid. =( There was a time in my life that I can't decide on my own because I'm used to be dictated and to tell me what to do. Maybe the best thing to do is talk to your parents about this. Tell them that you want to stand on your own feet. Tell them that they brought you up with fear to the Lord and you will always remember what they thought you. tell them that you're grown up already and ready to face the world. tell them that you will still seek an advice from them if you think you can't do the decision on your own. Tell them how happy you are for all their guidance and embrace them real hard that they will feel the sincerity of your heart. trust me honey, I did this long time ago and it really helped. =) Take care and Good luck! =)

but my father, ever since he ask me to do things i used to obey them all.. because i'm afraid of him.. if only you could know him personally.. i know what he wants is best for me, and disobeying him will really make him mad.. and i dont want that to happen, since i already know that anytime he will get mad he will have heart attack.. (god forbid).. but yes, i hate the fact that he's been dictating me on what to do.. and that leads me to do nothing at all in my life..

Let me see, I disobeyed my parents many times when I lived with them. I was throughtly abused and neglected by them in my childhood, so I was a very rebellious teenager. I met my boyfriend when I was 16 and never came home at nights, even though they had set me a curfew. I would actually stay gone for days, never call, or even tell them where I was. I really disobeyed them the day I moved out a 17. I just decided, enough was enough, and just packed up my sh*it and moved out. I told them to fu*ck off, and I haven't been back since. I don't even talk to them anymore. Although it sounds like your situation is much different then mine was, I suggest you just do what you want to do. You are a grown adult, and if your parents truly love you, they will stand behind any decision you make for yourself. Good day.

Till last month I have never ever gone against my parents but last month I fought with them, did what ever I had never done till now like I argued with my father, spoke louder than my mom went crazy broke my fish tank ended up sleeping without having dinner and yet my parents were trying to convince me, they did not slap me or whack me but were all the time asking me to calm down. And you guys must be wondering why I went so crazy cause I am passionate about becoming a pilot and my parents were with me all the time they helped me even clear all the examines for it but one day my dad was told by someone that its foolishness to become a pilot after college and suggested him to first put me into some professional course and then ask me to join flying academy, and when I heard this I went mad, not realizing that my parents would always select things that were the best for me and not bad for me. But when I realized that it was too late cause i had too much damage I had even broken their heart and for this I can never forgive myself. Now That I realized i have decided never to go crazy again like that against them.?
