When your mind is independent, You are strengthened to make your own choices,
It does not necessarily mean you don’t need the advice,experience and blessings of Elders to reinforce your choices!!
Basically you don’t want to have a dispute over the choices and hence you don’t care to share it with your elders(obviously, your parents!) who have taken enough decisions to make you wise enough to take your own decisions.
Think about it!! Talk about it! And Don’t be judgemental.
