16-a lot on my mind
'The Washerman's Dog- belongs neither to his house nor the waterside' , is a phrase that has haunted me forever. I feared I'd always be half-and-half and would stick out like a sore thumb among whichever community I was placed in. It took me time (and a number of therapy sessions) to realize that, yes, I was different, but ,no, people didn't judge me because of that. My home in North India and the people here have accepted me with a full heart for all my South Indian heritage, and allowed me to become an integral and accepted Northerner. I have come to love both sides of myself, but, I belong to the land and the people who have welcomed me without any reservations.
Show your love!! Your words mean everything to me. Every single comment and like makes my day/night/month/year. Love you forever.
