The myth of Eastern European Girl? Being surprised I have found a lot of opinions very unjustful or very far from the truth Some of you have no clue at all about us So, for us following the traditional values defo doesn't mean staying at home, bringing up children and cooking, cleaning up, making laundry or whatever else.
Those times passed away already. Traditional moral standards means decency, honesty, fidelity, responsibility for family and kids' future, but also being supportive for husband in any shape of form. Majority of us work and makes household income, there is no reason to put it on man's shoulders only.
Because education and knwledge is the only way to get independency, not asking for money any man, even if it's husband. In our country we don't have system of benefits, no help from the state at all, so we have to cope with life on our own.
For being wife, mother, daughter, good citizen and patriot We don't waste time on the coach watching stupid soapies, with a bag of chips and coke. We cook meals from the scratch, healthy ones, like our mothers did, so no chances to look "porky" at all. No sweets nearly at all Lot walks, less driving, not avoiding rain and FREEZE, yes ladies, freeze, we have winters with C and still we go to work, kids go to schools and we live normal. Now, having been living and working in UK for the last 6 years I have seen and found out a lot.
Always I try to imagine British woman in my age getting through situation like mine was: Sudden death of husband after 31 years of happy and friendly marriage. All savings spent on funeral, flat in the capital to be paid off, daughter in the last year of high school, heading for Uni, my work's income not sufficient enough to meet two ends of month for basic needs. No family to help. Heartbreaking decision about emmigration For the first year of life in UK being a sucject of any kind of bulling, discrimination and violence As many of you can see, my English is not poor apart from that I use fluently 3 other languages, including one oriental , I don't drink at all - just don't like the taste of alco, love speed and adrenaline, feel OK with myself.
You can see on my profile with recent pictures. Not bad as for 53 years. So, much of you say here are only myths about us Slavians. And yes, we don't smile like sweet idiots or mentals all the time, although when we laugh, it's a full of pure happiness, not a smile just glued to face mask Thank you my homeland Poland, for creating me who I am. I will carry on our values and traditions wherever I will go, until the end of my life.
No matter if somebody likes it or not, always I will defend my national identity - despite of having double citizenship.
