Being of two ethnicities is sometimes one of the most difficult things to deal with …

  • We never have one definitive place that we can call home
  • Neither ethnicity fully accepts us because we aren’t pure
  • There is always a constant balancing act with either side of the family
  • It is very rare that we are able to embrace both cultures at the same time without having to deal with the pain that you are leaving a part of yourself out
  • You have to speak English at home because one parent will always feel left out if you are speaking the native language

I could go on and on. I honestly love being multicultural but sometimes it’s really hard.

    Are you people fucking joking? Being mixed race is fantastic. You can be naturally separate from the tribe mentality...

    If home is where I was born, then my home is Bermuda, which I lived in for three months. Nothing is that clear cut.
