Never in my life.
They make it seem like its easy.. But you can never please them
Yeha i agree with you...
Also that even though you know you can never please them you will always try no matter what..
If only i could remember:(
Two years ago when i became officially the first man in my family to go to university. <br />
And yes i think they are.
when I graduated from university and passed the professional board exams. My parents don't really talk to each other, they've been separated for many years... but that day we had a family celebration and they hugged with tears - thanking each other for having a daughter like me. what a glorious moment. all parents should be proud of their kids, regardless of the status of their marriages.
I studied as much as i could, really didn't allow any pressure to get into me. 2 months from the date of exam, I cut off every distraction around me and focused on studying - no facebook, no internet, and very limited calls. I brought two bars of mars chocolate during the exam, oh well it worked. keep it cool.. discipline is painful but it's worth it. :) at the end of the day, it's not the recognition you get from others that matters... it's the fact that you have achieved something great enough to give you a good life. :)
yesterday my mum said i am proud of you!
YEAH.. sometimes it feels so good..so beautiful ..when you live upto someonez expectations...:)
My Mum said it on her death bed, but in all fairness, when you know the end has arrived yu'll say many things to try and square your account.
Thank you. But the words would have weighed more if they were spoken when I was achieving things, not when I was holding her hand for the last time.
They don't have to say it, I already know that they are proud of me. (:
I can't remember, maybe months ago.
Sadly, never. What about you?
The reality is that the only person who you need to please is you. I gave up long ago on pleasing my parents. They weren't perfectionists. They just grew up old school and expected my sisters and I to be the same way. Fortunately for three of us, we grew up independent of the old school way of thinking.
I hear you. Got the same problem with my parents. Nothing is ever good enough. Even if you do something perfect for 99.99%, they'll complain about that 0.01%. It makes you feel like you're useless, worthless and so on. When you're actually not. They need to open their eyes and start seeing, instead of just looking. They've got plenty of reasons to be proud of you. They need to show it.
Million years ago
I don't think either of them ever said that. But they were still good parents. I think maybe you expect too much. Love means never having too say "I'm proud of you," or something to that effect.
I realize some parents can be far too self absorbed but some are not even there physically. I think if you know you did a good job that's all that really matters. Hang in there sweetheart your still so young. Maybe they just don't want to loose your motivation and sit on your laurels.
Never in my 26 years.
They're lousy parents. They don't talk about "feelings"
When I told my mom I'm planning on becoming a psych tech
That's IF I graduate lol I still got 2 years to go and with this economy, I don't know if I'll be able to make it lol
Do they really say that sort of thing anywhere other than television?
Never. It's a bit too late now. My mom is dead and my dad is almost 80.
