Some peace and quiet

I have a dream of living someplace where all I can see is my son and nobody else. I don't care if it's just a one-bedroom house or apartment. I want to be able to drop off my son at school and I'll be either at my job or just working on a work-from home business and the day would end all peaceful and quiet. I would like to be in charge of our lives with nobody to answer to and nobody to explain to anyone who would never understand my point of view. I want to live my life thinking of only how I can raise my son. He's my top priority right now but if I have to also give to my parents, I'd do that as long as I don't have to hear anything negative from them ever, especially from my mother.

Life, for some people, is more like a nightmare rather than a pleasant dream. There are many demands on us and so we can only do so much. Try to find the best balance that you can and be happy with that.

Which is what I'm trying to do now by involving myself in other things.

I hope you'll be able to fulfill that dream. I also dream of that, having to live in a farm with a vast land, eat the fruis and crops that I myself planted, and live asimple life with my family.

That's a wonderful dream. The farm or anywhere close to nature is always good for the well being.

Some parents are really hard to understand. But then, you can try to talk with them. I am sure the concerns will be solved.

Sometimes I'd rather not talk at all because another conflict might start.

@maxen07 I gather from your post that you are carrying a lot of extended family baggage. Well, I know what you mean by wanting peace and quiet. Its at times hard to ask your family members to back off inspite of knowing that they are your well-wishers.

I suppose both of us are just stressed. Her at her job and me trying to find a job or at least anything online that would help me at least earn $20/day.

I hope your parents will allow you to be the adult and live a peaceful life. If your mother is bothering you , you might want to sit with her and have a heart to heart...from one mother to another. Good luck!

Well you know Asian parents, they do tend to be overprotective and overbearing sometimes. I've had a talk with her already but sometimes she does forget because of stress.
