You want to pursue an art.
Maybe write, design or become a professional musician.
But your parents won’t let you.
That causes tension. Lack of communication. Anger and frustration.
And the belief that “getting there” or “doing something” will prove it to them.
However, parents don’t crave to be proven right.
They want the same things for us that we would want for ourselves. The path may be different.
What if we told them that the only thing you need from them is their support?
What if we got out of our own head and had that conversation from the heart?
We can’t convince our parents through things or actions.
Only difficult (and most important) conversations can.
