I hate racism. I hate it when Indonesian people mocking Chinese people, I hate it when Chinese people mocking Indonesian people. No one's right for me.
Me ? I'm not 100% Chinese. I just found out that race is something important to my family.
I had a boyfriend. He's a year younger than me and he's Indonesian and a Muslim. We had been together for 2 years and 3 months. I know maybe some of you think that it was a short period but for me, it was my whole time, whole life, and everything. I'm not exaggerating but this is my true feelings. I love him so much. He treats me very well, full of affection, though sometimes (or often) I mean to him. I easily get mad and can't control my emotion. I've been so rude to him many times. I rarely apologize but he always forgive me. He always care about me.
I've never find a man like him.
Here's the problem. My parents won't let their children date Indonesian guy or a Muslim. That means, I can't marry an Indonesian guy. If they just won't let me date a Muslim not because the race, I can deal with it. Because in my opinion we should marry a person with the same faith. But they are concerned about the race. I can deal with them about the religion difference but the race ? It makes me sick considering that my mom isn't 100% Chinese. I hate it. So much.
I don't know who to blame.
With tons of guilty and heavily I leave him.. I even tried several times to get him to hate me, but he wasn't affected at all. I can't stand it, hearing he's complaining about 'we have to meet secretly', seeing him depressed keep thinking about our future, I can't promise him even one thing. I pretend to not to care, I hang out more often with my friends, trying so hard to not to think about him, about the memories, everything about him. It hurts me more instead. I thought I was over him, then I realized I've lied to myself. When I'm alone, I start to think about it. I cry myself to sleep every night. I'm so afraid.
I'm afraid I wouldn't find a man who can love me like you do.

This is the most hard good bye in my life. Ever.
Sorry if this post bothers you all.
