Contemplating whether I should be a responsible adult and stay in my job, or whether I should quit what I do, leave where I was born and raised, and just try to start a life where I would rather be.
It is not easy immigrating to a new country especially when you do not already have a job offer there, but I feel like it would all be worth the struggle.
Then again, wouldn’t I be considered a horrible daughter just leaving my parents behind when they want me with them?
All these Arabs ways of life and expectations; how I wish I could rip them away from me. All these Arab “traditions” and “customs”, how I wish I could tell my parents I do not care about all of them. I do not care about what is expected from an Arab female and what is inappropriate for an Arab female to do.
I dream of the day that I pack my bags and never look back on this place.
