Please be more specific.

I am lucky in that my parents did not impose their dreams on me.

On the other hand, my Mom was forced to perform musically as a child when she was painfully shy. In rebellion against that, she did not help me develop my musical talent, and I felt unsupported in that regard.

no no no no no… I wouldn’t follow my parents dreams… (I presume you mean their dreams for you) No-one else can really know what’s in your heart and what your purpose is ..other than you x

You mean like the path they gave up on? Nope. Our lives are our own. Their lives are their own. We each have our own purpose.

Personally, I think every parent should be given this page from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran upon the birth, adoption or custody transfer of a child.
