- South Korea
You might not understand this. I tried to hide my ethnicity. But for important reasons, I have to show it. I'm Korean-American. That's right. You know what's tiring? I have to obey authority no matter what the cost. Even if you're not in the situation, I have to obey it. It doesn't matter if...
I highly reccommend reading this post to get a better background of my culture.
When I was a teenager, I read a newspaper article about a man who was abused by his abusive father. He was honored because he endured the abuse all his childhood and never called for help.
He says that's unconditional love. I say it's madness! My blood boils. He could've ran away. But he didn't.
I understand where that shit is coming from. You have to honor your parents in Korean societies. Since that man was Korean- American and US easily puts restraining order, they don't want to lost their family member.
If that shit is the case, flee! Run for your life. Do you want to be maimed for the rest of your life? Physically and emotionally scarred? But no. You have to suck it up. Fuck this.
But I guess same shit goes for me too, if my family member physically abuses me (they didn't). Just suck it up and keep your fucking mouth shut.
I got traumatized for reading that article and the memory haunts me right now.
I don't want to suck it up and endure the damn abuse. Hell, no! It's a dangerous thing to do. But wait... I have no fucking choice. If I don't, I might face persecution that is worse than abuse. Korean- Americans are more nationalistic and old- fashioned than the Native Koreans. If I EVER sued a family member for abuse, they might harass or physically harm me. Now, that might be not true, but I'm scared it might happen...
