Do you dislike your home country? And why?
A2A. No, I do not.
You know sometimes, when you're sleeping, you might roll over or something and end up with your arm pinned underneath you at a weird angle? And then you end up laying on it for a few hours and when you wake up it's immobilized to the point where you can't move it?
And then, when you try, you can't? And you just know it's going to hurt like a bitch to get all the blood flowing through it again?
That is how I feel about the US right now. The future is not going to be fun. And it's not going to feel good. In fact, it's going to be jaw-clenchingly teeth-suckingly eye-wincingly painful.
But I don't dislike my damn arm.
...I may want to beat it against the wall to get the sense knocked back into it, though.
For many immigrant born children, a sense of shame may arise from the assumption that they do not truly belong to their native country, despite speaking the language and originating from there. They become stuck in a middle ground where neither country is the concrete home for them, though most of them are more fond of their new countries. However, most native-born citizens, however discontent they may be, never dislike their home country, for it is where they had grown up and shared all of their reminiscent memories. However, don't feel guilty if you hate your country. It is natural to be frustrated.
I like my country, though I dislike many things within its borders, much of its history and politics but then I can say the same about all countries. I know this country better and have more knowledge of what exactly I dislike, though no country is perfect. This country though provides more opportunity and freedom to succeed or achieve for most than any other I know, even though many who know only this country do not believe so. Those who are from here that do not believe so have likely never been anywhere else and those not from here only know what the media tells them.
Yes and no. There's a lot I like about it, but there's also a lot I don't like about it. Countries are large, complex things with lots of aspects to them. It's basically inevitable that they're gonna be a pretty mixed bag, quality-wise. There's certainly an awful lot that could do for a change, though.
