A 3 part Instagram series turned visual blog post!
I break down and explore some of my own experiences as a second-generation immigrant. I look back into what influenced my parents, how that shaped my childhood, what are things I've internalized etc. Some things are unique to me, but there may be some similarities to people of East Asian/Chinese backgrounds. All three posts are in some way about parenting and my needs not being met as a child. While there are many things that contribute to emotional neglect etc. I've reflected on the following three: absent parents, filial piety and intergenerational trauma.
