The Importance of Consultation With Your Parents

Have you ever had doubts whether or not you should talk to others about the things that are bothering or disturbing you?

Is it right to reveal it and let other people judge you and express their opinions or is it better to keep it to yourself?

Many of us don't share their thoughts especially with parents to avoid upsetting them. We are used to act like we are living in a Wonderland where everything is OK. But OK is one of the most misleading answers, considering that according to one of the versions, the origin of OK is bad spelling of "all correct". People who say they are OK, have so much more to say, but they don't.

Is it harmful to your soul to hide pain? Or is it unfair to burden others with the bulk of your problems and concerns?

If you want a one good thought about it, based on what Abduíl-Baha says, read the article The Importance of Consultation.

Do you feel consultation with one's parents should be the same as all consultation?

In consultation, we consider the ideas of others and discuss them without caring about where the idea came from. In that way, all participants are equal. However, we must have deference and respect for our parents and treat them as more than ourselves. What do you think?
