Opcode Group Title

I've had a question on my mind for a while now... Which do you think is more important: following the dreams your parents want for you or following your own dreams? My answer: I really don't know whats behind my fascination of cutting people open. Maybe it's just my demented urges to wanna open other people and see there insides... Or maybe that my parents always said that they wanted me to grow up into a doctor...

    You should follow your dreams because your parent's already had theirs. And even if they didn't, you should still follow your dreams. You only live once (yay cheesy over-used phrase) that we know of. And you might as well follow your own dreams because if you don't, you'll grow old and look back on life and regret that you didn't

    Yes, that's true. But not following your parents dream that they wanted for you... Isn't that kinda a lot like letting them down? Being a failure to them? Because they gave life to you, shouldn't you respect there dreams, decisions, etc.? I know we may regret not follow ours, but what about the regret of not being able to continue your parents dream? So ethier way we go, we'll always have regret...

    I don't think it would be letting your parent's down if you didn't set your whole future on their dreams. I don't think you'd be considered a failure either. It also depends on the culture and traditions, but now, in modern day it is considered acceptable that when a student/child graduates and goes off to college, they officially have their own life. It's your life, not theirs. That doesn't mean that you should completely ignore any input they have, and walk out on them and never talk to them again. You should listen to them, because they have lived at least 10 years longer than you and (most of the time) know more than you from experience. So in a way they get to have input in your future and your dreams, but they shouldn't have complete control over your life either. (This of course if just my opinion.) So go follow your dreams, but listen to what your parents say. (Hint: always *listen*, not always *do*)

    Jolly has a good point. Like in everything else, you should be guided in your early days by your parent's ambitions and desires. So I think the turnaround point comes when you discover that you have a compelling passion for a different path - when you are in college. Until then you should give them the benefit of the doubt and go their path. If you learn to think for your self, rationally and maturely and you still want to do your thing, you should do your thing. I have seen enough examples of people who followed their dreams and years later wished they had listened to their parents. And vice versa. I think you shouid talk to someone other than your parents, a mature person - school counselor, teacher, relative and get another opinion. On the parent's side, they know you, they know themselves, they have seen things and have experience and they have your best interest at heart. Give this a serious consideration. And you are going to change a lot. What you are today, what you think, dream and hope is very different to whatyou will be tomorrow. You will think differently, feel different etc. Its called maturing! You will have different players in your life. It is very difficult to project forward. In a sense your parents are doing that for you, with their canvas. So my advice is to listen to them, talk to a couple of others, and try to understand why they want you to do something else - and go their way till you can make a mature responsible decision for your self!

    Yeea, but on the comical side, "cutting things open" sounds a little - erm? :} So whats everyone in this thread is saying is that you want to cut everyone open and kill them, but your parents are against it... but the conclusion is that you CAN'T follow what your parents say, and that you should cut 'em all open- anyways?

    Um. I respect my parents, I won't just "do whatever u want to do". I try to follow my parents guidance: and the great thing is that my parents recgonize that tI should follow my dream, and they don't control me. But if your parents have a set future in mind, try to lean towards it, out of respect... besides, some of the time, a lot of parents know what's best for you.
