I’m 21 and ‘the glass is half full’ kind of girl. I made a decision a couple years ago to just go with the natural flow of life and construct my own set of beliefs, admissions and hypothesis about my own well-being. Not without a couple of concealed hiccups along the way, this individual sense of established morality has served me well over the years. I do however, find myself in the firing line sporadically. Comments such as not befriending many Asians or losing my roots or even not wanting to submerge myself in an abiding eminent job have all been quizzically ignited in my presence.
I do answer all the questions and i answer them with ease. However, sometimes i feel like i shouldn’t have to explain myself all the time, as mostly I’m counteracted by people who have a misconstrued judgement of their own beliefs. I’m aware there are people out there who are genuinely immersed in their religion, but many are fakers. Fakers are easy to spot in my book and i hate to say it but i spot many. I also hate to say it but it really frustrates me. I’ve countlessly met people who have had digs at me for my preferred method of entertainment. Days later I’ve seen those very people soaked in alcohol, hammered to the bone- seething with hypocritical vulgarity. Therefore, it actually devastates me that i get pinpointed sometimes as the ‘baddie’.
