Hey guys, so I noticed that I ask around lot of stuff on here… I hope that I’m not annoying anyone…
But I have another question.
So I am very obedient. I am naturally that way. But often late I have been feeling like I am missing out on so much because I am so. Like riding on the four wheeler. I did for a few minutes and felt really guilty because my parents said no so I started walking and I really didn’t want to but I knew my mom said previously no. But I love the adrenaline rush. I really wanted to but I knew she would get upset and not to mention it was a sin. But now I really regret not doing it and I know I did what I should but I also don’t want to be always stopping what I want because of someone else. I feel really torn and I wish I had done it.
I don’t want other people holding me back from what I want but I don’t want to disobey my parents.
I feel horrible now because I didn’t even though I didn’t do the right thing..

Hey Juanita! Don’t feel horrible and trapped in shame. I know you really want to have fun, but unfortunately obedience to your parents comes first. You can go ahead just as long as your parents agree, maybe you can ask again and promise them you’ll be accountable. Even if they don’t agree initially maybe later on if you continue to behave well, they’ll allow you to ride the four-wheeler.

God bless you Juanita 🙂

Hey girl!

You’re not a bother at all–I love that you’re so active on PI!

I know exactly how you feel, it’s very frustrating isn’t it? The best thing you can do is talk to your parents. Ask them why they don’t want you doing whatever it is you want to do, then be prepared with a mature and calm explanation as to why it’s fine. For instance, they probably don’t want you riding a four wheeler because it can be dangerous. So be prepared with reasons why you’re responsible and competent enough to ride one.

Also know that as you get older your parents will probably relax their restrictions on you and let you start making your own decisions. In the meantime, communicate with them!! Don’t just sit around being angry at them. (Like I did a lot when I was a teenager! lol) 🙂

I always thought talking to my parents wouldn’t do any good, but they surprised me a time or two. It’s hard, because most of the time you’re annoyed so it can be difficult not yell or sound whiney, but learning to speak sensibly when you’re upset is a great way to practice and gain more self control.

Also, I think you should give yourself some credit for following your conscience. That’s not easy!
