When were all young our parents always taught to live a life with your head up!
My family never wanted me to succumb to societal pressure and they always let me do the things that make me happy! and out of all the things I ever wanted to do growing up to be a “perfect Indian girl” was never my ultimate dream.
I do not have a problem with the Indian traditions or norms. but the definition you guys give to the “PERFECT INDIAN GIRL” .why is it okay for a boy to party and go on a date with a girl who is easy going but not marrying one?
I drink, have male friends go out with them does that make me fewer women, or in terms a “BAD” or “unethical” Indian girl. I am a strong, independent woman and a firm believer in love. When I envision my future, I see myself having a job that I have always dreamt of, being surrounded by people I love and happily married to a man who does not believe in the concept of marrying the ‘good Indian girl’.
I want a companion who will love and respect me for who I am. So, here I am, absolutely unapologetically and unabashedly accepting my strengths and weaknesses and telling you that I have the courage to live with my choices, whether or not you may agree with them. Stop judging me, or don’t, but if you do not agree with the way I choose to live my life, you are free to walk away. You no longer hold the power to make me doubt myself or make me feel bad about myself just because you do not agree with me.
I hope my message is clear. and that’s because I have some serious goals to achieve and some amazing relationships to establish.
