“You can’t do anything!” my father yells at me and tears roll down my cheeks. “But I can become an author, I love to write or I can become social activist or something.” I say in protest. He doesn’t understand me. He thinks I’m a useless piece of junk.

I’m an average student. Not so extraordinary but I like to do things in an extraordinary way. I don’t like science or math. I like history and English so my father thinks I’m just an average. I can’t become a doctor or an engineer. He thinks I’m afraid of it. But I’m not! I just don’t like it. Everyone wants to become an engineer or a doctor or the CEO of a high profile company but not me. I like to listen to my heart.

My father is very dominating since he is the boss. No one has ever questioned his decisions as ‘why’ but I do it. I want to know ‘why’? That’s why I’m different. But being different isn’t easy. I face sarcastic remarks. They say I’m not a good daughter. They say I don’t respect them.

I love my parents but it’s just that I’m different. I won’t change myself for anybody and neither can I become a doctor or something else like that. I can become me. I’m a little different that’s why.

i feel pity for those parents who don't try to understand their children,they make them rebelious themselves,,and in result both suffer,,,
but think positive and try to deny in the way that may not hurt your parents,but who suffers knows better,
