The longer I stay in academia, the more concerned my parents get about my future. They are starting to act like I’m a disappointment who will never accomplish when they consider important life goals. How do you deal with an unsupportive family?

Fortunately, your personal success does not depend on whether or not your parents acknowledge its existence. Are you happy with where you find yourself in life?

Well, whose goals do YOU care about? My parents wanted a different career path for me but I chose to follow my own passions and build my life as I saw fit. Our parents brought us into this world but they don't get to choose how we move through it

What are some of the important life goals? Do you even care to accomplish those same things?

It's great when our efforts are supported by our relatives, but it's unfortunate when it's not. Now, this at the same time is an opportunity to prove to yourself that you don't need anyone but you and your dedication and discipline to achieve what you want, don't let that stop you, rather use it to be bigger.
