Do you try to make your parents happy? And if you do then why?

I was just wondering if you guys try to make your parents happy? I mean I know a lot of you try to but sometimes you try to make them happy so much you forget about yourself. I've had friends in the past where they've always done what there parents told them to do but it seems as if there never happy. Or that there some how lost in a way.

I try to make my parents happy but not to the point in where they take control and you don't get to do what you want. Sometimes they don't try to control you life but you still do what they want cause your just simpley trying to be the best for them. And sometimes that means you don't get to your goals cause it's not what your parents want. Like the jobs you want or being in something like spots just because it's not what your parents want.

I think that you should still try to make your parents happy but don't let that stop you from doing what you want in your life.


So what do you think?

Yeah I know what you mean. Parents are always like that. XP Everything you do never seems to be enough for them.

Yeah I agree with you... I try to make my parents happy but sometimes I do what I want because that's what I want for myself. I know that they want what's best for me but I can't always please them. So yeah *shrug* sometimes we argue over things but that's life.

I used to...but now, I've just stopped trying to please them....rather...my mom. I'd do everything she wanted me to do...because I thought it was for "the good of my future"...but everytime I did something, It would be wrong. I'd play the piano wrong....I even didn't play the right guitar....she wanted "acoustic" but I don't like acoustic...so that was wrong. Finally, I just decided...I'm not living for her...I'm living for myself....and I'll do what I see fit and if I make mistakes...I make them on my own grounds.

Yeah parents always want what's best for you but they don't even know that sometimes it's no even what we want. -_- Why must they be that way? I don't know.

Heh, yeah, I "try" all the time. Key word there being "try", since nothing I do ever seems to please them. -_-

My parents have more or less grown to respect that I'm capable of doing things and stopped worrying what would become of me for some time now. My mom did use to nag me for every single thing in the past because she thought I couldn't take responsibility of myself but I've shown them I can... I suppose I can make my parents happy now by just being myself, so its not so bad... I guess I'm kinda lucky to have such understanding parents...

i used to do everything my parents told me to make them happy...i left my friends in high school to go to a private school, i studied diligently and earned good grades, i even cut my time with my friends because my parents wanted me to stay home to study, and i tried majoring in pre-med because they wanted me to become a doctor. but after jumping through all of these hoops for them, i just told myself that this is not making me happy and it's ridiculous trying to live my life for them. i know they are a bit disappointed that i'm not wealthy (my family pretty much only cares about money), but they still respect me because i'm basically a good person and turned out just fine without me having to make them happy at my expense.

lol, make my parents happy. that's easy,
all you have to do is be commited and open with them. Parents it when their children aren't happy. also If you say this following declaration (not exactly like this)

Declaration

Mum + Dad, I am going to create the possibility for us to have a better relationship with each other and i am going to be commited to what i do from now on.

I a giving up being self centred(eg) (all the negative points you think you about yourself)

And i acknowledge you for all the things you have done for me and that you've always been there for me even if not literally (eg)

sometimes this declaration can make your parents burst out crying with happiness, My mum did. Cause i did a self empowerment course and now my relationship with my parents is uber. but you don't have to if you don't want to.

Quote: Do you try to make your parents happy? And if you do then why?

In any case, I don't evidently try to make my parents happy by being unhappy along the way. Of course, pleasing my parents is not apparently what I have in mind. It would be better to warrant self-focus and never to let things go in the way of your goals and dreams. **Nods** In any case, my parents would be proud of my accomplishments, and I'm sure any parent would be happy seeing their children growing up and supporting themselves in their own little ways. You know, making a family, or finding a secure job. I also realized [which is quite obvious, by the way] that as long as you remain a good person, they'll really like you down the road in the long run.

Then again, I know some friends whose parents hardly even care for them and turn their lives completely upsidedown. Thus, I'll just state this from my side, and from my point of view here.

"No matter where you go, no matter how tough life may be, just remember that always in your heart, you will still be loved."

i'm sorry that you feel the way you do...but i understand where you're coming from. it all started when i turned 18, too, and peaked at 20, that i just started doing what i wanted to do. my parents couldn't do much because i was an adult...so i understand about you wanting to leave when you're 18. you're an adult so you should be able to make those decisions freely. but i also learned that my parents mellowed out with age, so hopefully your parents will do the same and won't be too controlling over you later on. and i think when they see what a good (and hopefully responsible) person you've become, they'll realize that they can trust you to make your own choices to make yourself happy.

Don't worry about tomorrow, don't think about yesterday,
don't live in the future, just make it through today!
