I don’t know where I belong.

The question of belonging is something I have always struggled with. I am a hispanic who was born in the U.S. However, people like me are stuck between being American or Mexican (or wherever their parent’s origin is). I am too Mexican to fit into the American category and I am too American to fit into the Mexican category. Both groups see me differently because of who I am or where I am. I go from being a proud American to a proud Mexican to a confused Mexican-American. Where do I belong when I love both and make me who I am?
