My parents had already experienced the very phases of life that I was going through and knew exactly how I felt, and what would be the outcome of my proposed actions. They did not tell me what to do, but pushed me in the right direction and allowed me to draw my own conclusions. Hence, I could always rely on them to guide me whenever I was confused about the decisions I was expected to make. Over time, my natural resistance against listening to my parents declined as I appreciated the fact that they always wanted the best for me and were the best source of wisdom and knowledge that I had. Today, I do not hesitate to talk to my parents about my life, whether personal or professional. I always consult them and seek their opinion before taking any major decision. Listening to your parents is an advice that I highly recommend people follow!
