I won't change or define myself according to the culture or ethnicity of who I am with... I don't feel the need or desire to change who I am to fit into what someone else deems acceptable and I would never expect that in return... It's OK to be different, there's value in accepting yourself as you are and doing the same for someone else... Hopefully, if you stop focusing on your differences, you will find the more meaningful things that you have in common and these are the things you need to hang on to... This creates the necessary independence where needed, and the closeness where It's most important.
