When did accepting your culture become so difficult?

“Where are you from?”

“Colorado”

“No where are you really from? Italy? Syria?”

“My mum was born in London and my father was born in India then moved here when he was five. My grandmother grew up in and out of India and London. All her family and relatives were alreay in London before she moved.”

“Wait are you still Indian then?”

I am. And it took me a lot of time to really accept this fully.
