I can’t say I understand by experience, but I can try to imagine what it’d be like to have a foot in two different worlds. I’m talking about growing up in two different cultures. Like the picture, it suggests a different set of expectations and images to go along with each culture. Neither would necessarily be better, but neither would fully accept you either. Or maybe you’d be fully accepted by both, depending on how tolerant they are.
It’s not exactly culture, but I can say that I know what it’s like to be an equal member of two different groups. It’s fascinating to see the world from both ends. Because of this detachment, you also sort of have a more objective view of the world, which makes you more accepting and open-minded. It’s really cool. It makes you more well-rounded and in the long run though it may be difficult sometimes, it’s worth it for the perspective.
