Things Our Parents Taught Us That We Can't Agree With Anymore

We learned a lot from our parents. Unfortunately, some of that advice is now totally outdated. There are some things they taught us that now that we’re adults, we just can’t agree with. Members of the “Buzzfeed Community” are sharing what they’re no longer listening to their parents about.

  • "'Blood is thicker than water' and 'familial love is unconditional.' That was usually in the context of how I was still obligated to love my father even after he beat and berated me. I no longer believe in blood bonds or unconditional love — love and respect have to be mutual. I refuse to love someone who intentionally hurts me to make themselves feel bigger."
  • "'Hard work pays off!' and 'You can do anything you put your mind to.' Working hard will kill you and have you being a pack mule for billionaires. Life is about working smarter!!! And being efficient — not doing all this grueling work and getting bloody knuckles and having nothing to show for it."
  • "Do what makes you money, not what you love."
  • "To save all money and NEVER and any luxury are a waste of time. Mom recently passed away. My parents have a lot of savings, but she never got to enjoy life. I don't go too wild with spending, but life is short. Treat yourself."
  • "Stay loyal and work hard for a company, and they will take care of you."
