A Rebel's Pain

X: But your family loves you!

Y: If they really love me, they should accept me and respect my views, and let me live the way i am instead of trying to impose their beliefs on me!

I face alienation because of my secularism, but i wonder... what if the situation is reversed? Suppose my son turns out to be a religious fundamentalist. Would i not be horrified and try to stop him from going on this path, claiming it to be for his own well-being?

This thought really leaves me perturbed and confused.

Again ... " The anticipation of problem" is always bigger then the problem itself ...

Also to quote Gibran here..advise to parents for their children...

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.........

well that is true. This is the dilemma we all face.
We cant always tell what our kids are supposed to do or how they should lead their lives. We should teach them what we think is best but imposing our own beliefs seldom works. In fact, It usually goes the other way.

Hope your exams are going well! :)
