are unattainable. Instead, I can just worry about doing the best I can. It is possible
that I may have a career that is not the highest paying or the most prestigious. But as
long as I am happy, and I do the job to the best of my ability, I will feel like I have
expectations that they can’t attain, or do something that they don’t really enjoy in
order to make their parents proud.
The problem with saying “as long as you do you best” is that when I know I could have
or fail in something and my parents say “as long as you tried your hardest.” It gets
about it as much as some people might.
In conclusion, the piece of advice that I receive most often from my parents is
basically a good one, and often it keeps me motivated in the things I do. It also shows
me that my parents will support most of my decisions and treat me like a responsible
person. I believe that somewhere along the line. I will probably pass along the advice
“as long as you did your best” to my children.
