What will you do if one or most of the things that make you happy might hurt the feelings of your family? Like not obeying your parents when it comes to college courses, schools to enter, friends to accompany you and trying to earn money from your hardwork?

Hmmm, well of course i'd feel guilty about it but they'd have to understand that i'd want to take the courses that i want, i want to lead my own life and they'd know that i had always been grateful to them for their care and support but some things, you just gotta do it on your own...=]

I think it depends on what it is that they are unhappy about. Since I'm an adult now i can make my own decisions freely, but i would understand if i did something that was destructive or bad then yes I could understand them being upset over something like that, but i generally just hope and wish that my parents trust my judegment in life, if they dont then i ask them what their advice is and make my own decision about what to do but that doesn't mean that I always do what they want me to do

I've been face these kinds of situation many times. Sometimes i listen to my parents, i compliance with what they want as long as it's not a very big due t me. The biggest fight i have with my mom is about choosing my bf, i like the guy but she wants me to be with the other guy. At first, i am kind of give up my choice, because she is so sad that i did not follow her instruction, but later, i found out, this guy just not my type, and my friends told me that this is for the rest of life, you should listen to your heart instead of compliance with your mom to let her be happy. So, it's been so hard for me to make that decision, now, my mom like my bf too. I am happy! See, there always have way to solve problems out!
