Does being a British Chinese Christian condition me to want to belong?
True, very true indeed. I would say at the early years, to belong was something that I yearned for. The small town of Irthlingborough is where I live currently and being in the countryside, there isn’t really a Chinese community present. It’s harder to obtain belonging within a rural area and that being a minority felt strange as you feel like an outsider/alien. Not alien in the sense that you look alien, but what you perceive as normal is alien to others and the exact same goes the other way around.
