Throughout High school and the first 2 years of college I felt misunderstood not by my peers and friends, but by my parents. I’m sure many young people have felt this way and can relate. I have always been comfortable at school and within the numerous extracurricular activities I was involved in but I felt my parents simply accepted the things I was doing without truly believing in me. Like many others, my parents wanted me to go to law school or enter into a field that would guarantee a great deal of money. But the decisions about my future were constantly changing and once I told them I wanted to enter into education, it was a very hard fact for them to sallow. It took many arguments and under handed comments for them to realize I wanted to do what I loved regardless of riches. Once we were all on the same page I was able to live my life more freely knowing I had my parents in my corner. My advice to young people who are in a similar situation is to stick to your guns and continue to be interested in whatever you desire. Once your parents see the passion. They may very well come around and be in your corner as well.
