We all go through phases. Physically, psychologically, and socially. It depends on where you are, your atmosphere, your past experience, and many other things. But the most noticeable ones are the cases where you feel you've hit a point where you have actually went BACK instead of forward. I'm talking about social status demotion!
It's hard to go back from one status to the other, I recently experienced the demotion from a "Man" to a "Son" which are two very distinct phases in a person's life.
I have been living independently on my own for longer than I can remember. Yet, hold the love and respect of my family near and dear to my heart. In any case, It's mostly due to my distance from the family members and homes that this feeling of independence have developed
No matter what I try, the minute I step into the family house, I go back to being the youngest, the Son. I'm no longer the independent Man I was few moments ago.
Most noticeably would be the criticism of post or future decisions, and worse, others imposing their own decisions sometimes even without my consent.
It's interesting to see the way the world works from different sides of the world. On one side, you are the supreme ruler, the highest authority in your own little existence. While on the other hand you're a pawn with limited autonomy yet, you still have superiors and must obey and follow the path set in front of you.
I don't know If I am going to start listening now, I've always been the rebellious one... But is that about to change? Is it time? Is it the age? Social atmosphere ... or what exactly!?
