If I'd Observed All The Rules

Something I've always done is follow the rules. Followed what my parents told me to do, or not do. But now that I'm 18 and I've out of high school for almost a year, it's time for me to start making my own decisions, right? While I do feel this way, I can't bring myself to go against my parents. They think that since I won't be going to school in September, I should stay at home and work for another year. And I do see where they're coming from, since that would be the smart thing to do financially. But. The thing that they have never understood, is that being in a small town is stifling to me. Everyday feels like a waste here. I need to be in a city, I belong in cities. I need the people rushing, traffic jams, culture, fashion, inspiration. I don't belong in this tiny town, and I need to get out. But I don't know how to convince my parents of this, because they just don't understand. And I need them to be on my side. Because I've always listened to them, I don't think I could do it without their approval.

But maybe I should be more like Marilyn, and not listen to rules. I'm obviously not getting anywhere this way.

  1. Sounds like a bit if a problem and I know what you mean. Cities are so much better than the small towns. Anyway, maybe have a little talk with your parents, show them your point of view. Last but not least: gorgeous outfit, love the colours!

  9. Wow -- your hair is amazing, and I love these romantic, beautiful shots. (Plus, those shoes? Perfection.) Thanks for stopping by my blog -- so glad you did! As someone who's lived in a big city for many years now and is soon moving back to a small town, I'd say it's totally worth taking a risk. Cities are amazing (though, having a savings is definitely helpful for moving out and getting yourself settled) -- even though I'm thrilled to be leaving for a small town, I'm glad I lived somewhere big for awhile. Good luck!

  27. It's hard if your parents don't understand it. But it's your future (easy to say). If you're not happy with how it goes, you have to change it. And I think it's more important to see your child happy.

    Pretty skirt!

  30. Thank you for the kind comment on my blog. You look fantastic I love the skirt, sweatshirt hair everything!
    I know how you feel, after I left uni I went into agency work, now I have a stable job my parents don't understand why I want to move out and don't want to save for a car and holiday. I too want my own space.
    I say go for it- in the end your parents will always be there for you if you have any problems and can go home :) parents are the best safety net
