Bland identity. Culturally disappointing. Plain white.

I’ve always felt a strange longing for more cultural identity. My family doesn’t have strong traditions or ties to any particular heritage which has left me with a certain emptiness. I marvel at people who have strong racial and cultural identities. I think this is why I have an appreciation for and fascination with diversity and a global perspective.

    Dianna, I can relate to your longing for cultural identity. My family did not value our European culture for whatever reason. I think that is why I am curious about other cultures and drawn to their sense of closeness with family and their traditions. Its something we lacked in our family.
