They want us to be a particular way, as long as we fit in their idea of what we should be like and are obedient then they are happy, as soon as we step out of it then we are Khalistanis.
Religiously/culturally they want us to be like people from the Hindi belt/holy cow belt, other states in the past which have refused to fit into this mould have also been persecuted.
Same situation for any 15yr old 🙈
Self esteem is just another skill to work on. Make a list of skills/things you want to develop, including Sikhi related 😉 like learning paath by heart, kirtan and work through them
Learning a marital art will help with self esteem. I started Karate age 11 🥋. I only did it a few years but it gave me so much confidence. I been learning some boxing too during lockdown watching YouTube videos. Goal being to develop my self defence skills
As a fellow citizen of the world, I’d rather you were humble (whether a little or a lot) than the opposite 🙏🏼
