My Freedom and Their Authority

Nowadays I am living the problem of most our generation, I want more freedom, and my parents don't think I deserve it.

Before I proceed lets review some facts:

I am 22 years old (next august ISA).

I am a fifth medical student.

I am Taller than my father and mother (180 cm). I am just drawing you a picture.

Now back to the main subject, I see that I deserve my freedom, I am not a kid anymore, my collages in school are working in their jobs now, one of them actually is waiting his FIRST BABY in a few months, I have no hand in being in a long school, I have no hand in being in a community that the only way for a man to leave his father's house except to his own with his wife.

My parents in the same time think that I am not up to it, that I am misusing this freedom.

I have a few words that I must get out or something is going to happen to me, and in the same time I can't get it out to them, so here it comes.

Freedom : I think it is the one's ability to choose, as long as he is not harming or affecting anyone else he is FREE to do what he want, If he is breaking some Devinne rules god is responsible to punish him in this life or in the after life, as long he is not trying to do harm to any one else, even though his choices are harming himself, and I am saying EVEN IF, no sane person will ever choose something that he knows it will hurt him, unless the gain he is going to receive is more than that harm.

Lets go back to their standard replies, " You are living in my house, until you find a house of your own or another one make as u want " , I am not living in your house because you are making charity on me , I am living in your house because you lived in your fathers house, I am living in your house because it is part of your responsibility towards me, as it is a responsibility on me to respect you and honor you, it is not because you bay me or because I live in your house, why then people ask their children to respect them and honor them after they are married, they are not living in their houses anymore, they are not forced to do it, they do it because they want to, it is part of their respect to their selves if they are will raised to respect their parents, not because they are paying me to.

Another reply, " You don't know the good way to your self, you are destroying yourself ", Where is my freedom if all my choices are monitored and can be reversed without my will, may be it is not the good road in your eyes but what about mine?? may be I see another thing, may be I don't Scale with the same standards, either social or economic or even religious.

Another Thing, "You are still a student, your work now is to study when you finish do what you want", OK so the only barrier is that I am a student, so if I choose to end that barrier right now the problem will be over, but hey wait a minute, you don't have the right to end that barrier because you are still young, you don't know the sound route, and if you tried to overcome that barrier by working while you are still a student, for them it is just a kids play, it is not real working, because you are still a student, can any one solve this dilemma?

"You still need to be raised, we failed in raising you", OMG, really Oh My God, I am a 22 years old person, if you didn't raise me well in the past 20 years, are you going to fix it now?, how come you want to change me now, you have worked hard in the past years in raising me , the time has come to stand back , give me my space, and hope for the best, it is the time to see the result of your work, the exam is now being marked, can you say please I want to change my answers now? Can you?. You must hold back and wait to the see your results because the time of solving the exam up.

"You were good before, what happened to you", it is the same old me, just because I am asking for my privacy, and asking for my right to choose, I am suddenly all gone bad???

Every one of our parents want us to be the first on his grade, and the most athlete in the club, and the smartest and most genius in the world, the most handsome/beautiful among his/her group, the most one to relay on, the best one to stand in the hard times, the leader of the world and the kindest towards the week.

Have anyone told them that we all bear the name SUPERMAN?, I can't be all that, why cant u settle down to most of these characters, why can't you accept me as I am, may be I am not the fastest but may be I am the smartest, why you keep looking on the fast character, if you just diverted your vision a little to the right you will find that there is a character or more that you like and I am good at.

Give me my Space, Accept me as I am, as long as I am respecting you, and doing some good, please stop pushing me, one day I won't stand the pressure anymore, you sound upbringings are holding well till now, but every thing has a limit, may be that limit won't come, and I hope that too, but I can't grantee it, I am not threatening , and I wont ever do, but I had to get these thoughts out, or they would have killed me.
