I'm Not A Doll

I'm 16 years old, I'm going to university soon.. for these 16 years, i always being told to do everything that i don't like at all, even my university being chosen by my dad, what should i study being chosen by my mom... they never asked about my opinion, and they never asked me, what is my dream... they never care about me... why can't they understand that I'm different than them... it's true that I'm they daughter, it's true that they are the one who take care of me since i was a baby.. but, this is my Life, I'm not a doll...

My stepmom is similar... She wants me to study a certain subject in college, at which point I told her I was interested in it anymore. At least not as a profession. After explaining to her what I wanted to do and why she let off the assumptions and pushes. It takes a little bit of assertion, but patience as well. It's something that could escalate fairly quickly so think about what you should say.

Some or most parents think that they know what's best for their children just because they have lived for a long time and they are wise enough now. I won't tell you disobey your parents but you have to show them how wrong they are. you have to show them that their choices are holding you down. Make them feel some guilt that they are not letting you achieve your dream.
