My second cousins from Canada are visiting. Two young women, 23 and 27.
My mother mentioned that the 27 year old might be suffering from depression.
When the two girl decided to take a trip to Los Angeles, their parents freaked out.
They were told that two young women should not be traveling alone.
Continuously, they were being judged but their was no turning back, the tickets were purchased.
Their visit prompts speculation of their true intentions. Were they coming down to find potential suitors? Or are they simply to corrupt for any suitors?
All of this nonsense infuriated me to a level of extreme anger causing my triggering depression and anxiety.
Why can’t two women travel?
Why are they being questioned for their choice to travel?
One judgement after the other.
There is nothing I can do. I can’t change an entire culture. I am not strong enough.
But, I feel for my fellow females.
These ladies didn’t seem to have any ambition or goals.
Some times I wonder if its wrong to rebel. To be a strong educated women.
Am I wrong?
But, I can’t conform to the cultures ways. I can’t. I won’t.
I just wasn’t built for it. I don’t want to be ruled by a man.
Your damned if you do. Your damned if you don’t.
If I am outspoken, I am shamed for it. If I am submissive, I am praised for it.
