Our parents want us to choose a risk-free path of life. Engineering, CA, lawyer, doctor. Stability was something they craved for. Stability is something they wish for us as well.

However, we have a different take on life. Rightly so, because we have way more exposure, opportunities and options than they had. And most of us want to go against our parents’ wishes and choose the path of risk and see how things unfold.

As we have these conversations with our parents, they may understand our PoV. Or they may not. However, there’s one thing that we ought to communicate to them:
We disobeying them does not mean we are disrespecting them.

Most important things in life that need to be said are unsaid.
