We stereotype people.. I get it.. But when people who you call your own countrymen continue to stereotype in a way that doesn’t even reflect the way you see things or the way you act, you start to wonder whether you really do reflect what they say about the stereotype. You purposely start doing everything that is contradictory to what they’re saying, just so that you can try and prove that you are “different”.
But you become unhappy. You’re not yourself anymore. You know you don’t even represent the stereotype and yet people still don’t see you as you. Simply you. Why do you have to change yourself for others? You’re not hurting them in any way… So why change to someone you’re not and make yourself unhappy? You know you’re different. You also know you don’t represent the stereotype.
I am who I am and I’m not changing who I am to please any one of you.
