why do you have to explain this to anyone?
Immigrant communities are nosy as hell. I know the day will come and I'll probably feel slightly ashamed/embarrassed.
But I don't trust them.
I know the pressure's coming because some of my friends are getting engaged and my mother keeps talking about grandkids and I'm sitting here like...
I understand being an immigrant. You can just give them some bs answer about waiting for God to put the right man in your life. Immigrants don't argue when you say God
but seriously--you are not alone in your sentiment. you have been hurt and you're scared. I equate it to when you get into a car accident. When you start driving again you are naturally skiddish and wary until you learn to trust yourself again.
just like you wouldn't want a bad experience to turn you off one racial group, you don't want it to turn you into a "niccas ain't sheit" kinda woman bc then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. don't let yourself be so jaded at such a young age.
