When u do sumthing against the thinking of ur parents,, this is the first hurdle,,,, and mom is the first one to worry when we think of taking some risk with our life,,, so don't take tension.
Its like it might took a long time for you to realise that ur passion is acting. It wasn't like one day u got up and felt sum craving for being an actor. But it is sudden for ur parents, though they may be knowing that u like acting but choosing it as a profession is another big thing... You are thinking abt ur passion at time but ur parents are thinking abt u. I hope u understand wat I'm asking u... See don't think that u r a bad son,, Its a natural reaction to ur action,, u jst need to handle it sensitively. In any case don't overreact. U don't need to leave ur passion or career without thinking practically. Both money and mental satisfaction are equally important. Ya u can earn money through acting but according to ur parent's POV academics are sure way to economically successful future. There are many actors, who started acting after graduation,, so chill, enjoy every bit of ur student life. u won't get it back.
And don't think,, ur posts bother us,,, SG is our connecting link, and we are connected to SG coz in one or another way we feel related to the show. So there's no harm discussing such issues if SG is discussing them through the show...
