/ Feeling ashamed of my Polish heritage.
I found a forum with Polish people on it which is good. There are almost no Polish people in my school so I think this website will be good :) I am new to this site and I hope I am following the rules as of now. I also hope this post is in the right section (culture and society).
Now guys. Please don't flame me. But as of now I am not too proud of being Polish and its bothering me and I don't like it. I know I may sound stupid, but what's bothering me is that Poland is being run by a bunch of idiots. The economy is not great and all my relatives who live in Poland always ***** and complain on how bad it is over there (low salary, high costs for food etc). They always tell me how the roads and buildings are poor and how they wanna leave because its so bad over there. Its strange because All of my friends, whether they are Italian, Romanian, Czech, Greek, Swedish, French, they are all proud of their nationality but I'm not and I hate it. It really frustrates me when you see Italy, Greece, France and the UK having all those beautiful and historical sites and people visiting them but with Poland its like nobody gives a **** because its not as flashy as those other Western European countries. I'm feeling pretty down and maybe you guys can enlighten me. If you guys want to call me an idiot or a moron, thats fine. I understand if you guys are upset or angered by this.
