Whether it was in our early teens when we believed we could run for president or more recently after watching a heartwarming video on our social media feed – at some point, everyone has thought that How would you like to change this big world for the better? .
We all know that feeling, all motivated and ready to tackle any mountain – however, realistically, you won’t be able to “change” anything unless others are of the same mindset. Do not share.
For this to work, he said, people need to break the racial stereotypes that serve us no good and inspire those who come after us to do things that benefit our society.

The whole ‘blood is thicker than water’ idea. If your family members are suckers, cut them out of your lives. Just because you have a relationship doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. , but can still apply for immediate family)
Religion, I don’t think religion should be forced on your children, it should be a choice when they grow up.
Hugging/kissing/hugging children/relatives even if they don’t want to because “grandparents will get their feelings hurt if you don’t”. Shows children that their own physical autonomy is less valuable than someone else’s feelings. It also gives them a distorted view of what consent is.
We all have our own goals, desires and dreams.
We should not be expected to:
– Run a family business.
– Marrying a certain type of person
– Attend a particular college.
– Earn a certain amount.
– Live in a specific neighborhood.
Don’t let the opinions of older generations – family or not – dictate your life.
‘I was hit and I was fine’
No you obviously didn’t, because you grew up thinking that hitting small children is an acceptable form of discipline.
At least in my family, fancy wine glasses. No one ever uses them, everyone hides them in the cupboards because they are so good to use. They are not even sentient, someone just picked them up one day and handed them over to the family.
Being forced to spend time with distant relatives. It’s okay not to be around people who live polar opposite lifestyles than you. I have relatives who will never know where I live and for good reason, yet family always says “you need to keep in touch….”
Smoking Everyone my age I know smokes because their parents/guardians either enabled them or didn’t care enough to stop them. It’s scary. The number of parents who introduce their children to cigarettes, hard drugs and things that are crazy.
Political Affiliation. Think for yourself. Choose for yourself. Not because your parents, grandparents, etc. have always voted for ______ party.
Does the party, as it stands today, really represent your values? Will the politician who is affiliated with that party actually vote the way you want them to?
In my area, there are many local politicians who run under the umbrella of a particular party because the majority of local people always vote for that party, so the election is effectively decided by primaries.
Dangerous advice for pregnancy, babies and young children.
The most common examples I’ve seen are:
– Castor oil to induce labour
– Blankets for sleeping babies
Rice cereal in bottles (unless advised by a doctor)
– Creating your own formula
Family bias is huge that these c**p are not safe despite plenty of research proving they aren’t. A lot of women don’t even bother to do any research or take free classes that offer their health care that is much more than that!
Name. Especially since credit reporting (US) is such a gamble. My husband, father, grandfather…all have mismatched credit information. I didn’t want my son to inherit his father’s bad credit reports (better now, but still). I knew this from experience because my mom and I shared a first and last name and the same address, etc.
Long story short, older generations of my husband’s family ostracized my son and hated me for a long time.
I apologize for nothing. It was the right decision, and my son has a last name, not mine, and not even a hyphenated last name. Their This is more than enough respect for his legacy. My husband and I didn’t take this decision lightly, and I’m the only one who hates it anyway. Still no regrets.
