Its right for me!!

I've really had enough of my parents coming across as harsh and hurtful when correcting me and looking out for me, whether what I did was on purpose or not. Especially as I feel it's right for me when it isn't for them, like not bringing money when going out cuz I assume everything will be fine or my throat is no longer hurting so I stop taking medicine or carrying on using faulty house machines because I don't like any other ideas. they just ought to accept my care-free collected ways regardless of the consequences and they have no right to tell me off and lecture and have a go at and be conscious of me as if I'm a child! I'm 19, not 9! Being an adult means forming my own principles and instincts, not purely responsibility and maturity! Being Asian parents is no reason for this child-treating unfair-discipline for all eternity. They can want what's best by reducing their mouthy behaviour and laying off as well trusting I know the right thing to do and how to deal with if things go wrong. Giving advice and suggestions and caring doesn't mean being so rude and strict like that no matter how "wrong" what I did was and acting so conscious of me.

    You do whats right for you. As long as it doesnt harm anyone then should be okay but sorry your parents tell you otherwise. They can be overprotective sometimes. 
    But they should realise that even if they think youre doing something wrong.... you will learn from it even if you was. And dont need to be constantly told about everything
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Sorry to hear about the situation you're in. It can be frustrating when parents try to play a bigger part in your life than you would like them to. Not sure if it makes you feel better, but there are a lot of parents similar to yours, so I'm sure there are many other people who feel similar to you. My mom can be a bit overprotective sometimes and I actually have to ask for permission to do some things at age 20 =) Have you tried speaking to them about it and how you feel?
