Family is a family

Related to the previous post. Talking about family, especially the relation between you and your parents.

As a teenager we sometimes feel that our parents are captious, they prohibit us to do something we think is fun. "Why you can just understand me, Mom, Dad? Can't you just see me happy doing what I want? You can never understand me." Well, that sounds normal but, let's have some thoughts with me.

I write this, not because I never feel the same way, but I realize that our parents never have wrong purposes by prohibiting some things to us, it it is wrong, it's just about the way they communicate their care to us.

I used to think that my parents were so old-fashioned that they used to call me every minute when I was going out with my friends till late night. But nowadays I realize, that when it happened to my sister, I were too worried about her too, until I'm captious to her, telling her not to come back home late at night. So that doesn't mean that they don't wanna see you happy, but they care about you enough that they don't want anything bad happens to you.

Or another example, when you're in home and your parents ask you to help their duties, or get mad at you when seeing you doing nothing or just laying on your bed. They never mean to be angry, but you know what? First, they just want to make you more mature, someday you're gonna be an adult, you've gotta know what you're gonna do from now. When they ask you to help them, all they wanna do is to let you know that someday you'll be like them. You have to work for your family. All the parents think is that someday they will be gone, that you can not rely on them forever. So they want you to be prepared, for your own good.

There are so many more examples, but from now, let's think about positive things of what your parents do to you. And let's have a thought of this: "No matter how annoying your parents' doing to you, can you beat their pure love to you?" You may ever hate your parents, but they will never have an idea of hating you, believe that. All that they do to you is just to make you be a good person, a successful one someday. They don't want you to make mistakes they ever did when they were young like you, that sometimes they treat you hard.

“Parents are like God because you wanna know they're out there, and you want them to think well of you, but you really only call when you need something.”

And here is a touching video about family. Although this video doesn't have really great numbers of viewers, but this is such a great video to watch. Quite pleased to find this video. Just watch! :")
