It is like that

Most people, accept their limitations, and then things tend to go from bad to worse. They grow up insecure and obedient (although they dream of a day when they’ll be free and able to do whatever they want), they get married to prove that they’re not as ugly as other kids say they were (although deep down they still believe they are), they have children so that no one can say they’re infertile (even though they wanted kids anyway), they dress well so that no one can say they dress badly (although they know people will say that anyway).

Still my parents complain that I don't listen to them and I tell them that I listen to myself. And what I say to myself is what you have taught.

most of the time we do things to prove it to others.

It doesn't effect me if others judge me... in the end I know what I want and what I did to get it.Only I can judge myself.

peace be upon you.
one cannot please everyone but the one who created.so we must try to please the creator and not the creation.

Gal... nice thoughts and probably rightly said... but I would like to contest... Many people do accept their limitations but then they start identifying means to work along those limitations... very few become obedient... it is just that the daily battle with life keep them busy and they may give an impression of being obedient... all my arguments would come from this point and if I am able to communicate this I don't have to write others... However, I feel that these sentiments may be a camouflage to convey something which may be troubling you... Who has stopped anyone to pursue dreams? ... It will take time definitely especially when one struggles with daily issues of life but I can name quite a few of my acquaintances who have been able to succeed... :) But again I may be totally wrong... Apologies in advance for that too... :)
