Why would I listen to mom? I've no idea what I was doing when I was younger. But if I listened to mom, she would be happy anyway. Thus, I almost did everything that was required by my her.She made a decision for so many things including my clothers, hair style, friends...etc. Day after day, both she and I get used to it. After growing up, I wanna run faster, fly higher, it is kind of painful to listen to mom. I went to some university that she liked. Also, she chose my major, which I didn't have what it took to learn. One thing is that, once u start something, u are expected to finished it well. Thus, I worked hard though I didn't like it. I know she wished me good luck! However, she doesn't know that she actually pushed me so hard. She told me that I didn't really know things. Thus, my decision would definately be unreasonable. She is so arbitrary that I am of exhausted sometimes. Sure, I can leave her alone doing anything that I want without considering her opinions. But it will hurt her on the other hand. What if her blood pressure is higher... Since I am far away from my hometown, I miss her, but I don't wanna call her. Maybe I am scared of my mom's call. She will possibly complain that I dream away my life since she is not near. In fact, I may just do something that she considers as a mistake. I wanna further my study in a famous university aboard, which is my dream. She knows that I am working for it. But my mom will never dream of allowing me to do that. She thinks she knows my futher better. It was but last hour, my mom had a dreadful row with me for it. She must be hurt... I told her I could do anything else that was required by her. Don't hurt her by listenning to mom. But this time, it is too hard. I feel sad... I know in some western countries, the kids will leave their parents in pursuit of their own dreams. It is awesome!

I am sorry you feel sad.Moms always wish the best for their children.They are just scared that their kids will go to the wrong path.They thought that they should be followed whatever they would say but sometimes they are too much that the children will become rebellious.I am a mother too and i love my daughter very much and i am sure your mom feel the same way for you.I always wish and pray that she would become successful one day but her future lies in her hands though i will always here to support her no matter what.

Sometimes, the kids need more "freedom" though some parents can't really understand. Anyway, it is not meant to be. Every mom wishes the kids good luck! They are actually great. We should be good to mom whatever happens.

well listening to ones parents is definitely good . it pleases them a lot!! but always you will become your mama`s pet !1 well while you grow up it is good but when you are at your own perhaps you are required to take your own decisions depending on situation and your own judgement. if you do not do this you will lose your individuality and one day you will find yourself in the lurch!!
