The hit song “Rude” by Magic! is the story of a man asking his girlfriend’s father for permission to marry his daughter — and the father says no. Is it romantic that the singer says he’s going to marry her anyway? Or does the father have some insight about who and what is best for his daughter? Do parents know best?
We often don’t want to hear what our parents have to say, but they tend to see things from a perspective we cannot. Plus, they have our best interests at heart. So it may be worth it to swallow your ego and admit your parents might be right sometimes. The least you could do is listen and take what they say into consideration.
Don’t let your pride get in the way of making a huge mistake just because it’s your parent who pointed it out.
