this happened to me recently, and it stung a lot. I made a decision about my career that goes against some traditional expectations in my community, and let's just say some aunties were not happy! It's tough to feel judged by your own people. How do you all deal with criticism from your cultural background, especially when it dotyczy [dotyczy - Polish means 'concerns' or 'relates to'] your lifestyle choices?

Hi there, firstly, I'm proud of you to make those tough decisions and as a clinical psychologist. I would love to help you out with your question. I understand how judgment from people we love and surround us can impact our mental health the Sting indeed hurts because of the emotional weight they carry. Practicing self-compassion is key- you made a choice that aligns with your values and your aspirations, even if there are different from the society's. Another thing that can help is finding individuals with a similar mindset. Having an open dialogue with family members can help but it is essential to also maintain boundaries. Hence, mutual understanding and respect is primal. Please remember the person growth requires stepping out of our comfort zone. Best of luck for all your endeavors and I hope to see you soon in a live session.

I love wearing black, but I’m not sure if it’s appropriate for Diwali. Is it okay to wear black during Diwali, or should I choose something more colorful?

How do i embrace my cultural identity in a society that might not understand?
Anonymous・-3d
Hello there. I am Deepti Acharya, a counseling psychologist and relationship coach. Thanks a lot for reaching out. I understand your concern. I know how important cultural belongingness is for you. First and foremost, try to find ways to connect with your culture individually and finding a strong bond with it which is not highly influenced by societal expectations. This could include reading about and exploring your culture better. Secondly, it is vital to start setting boundaries and finding distinctions between your beliefs and social norms. Thirdly, try to find ways of interacting with and participating in communities that share your cultural beliefs. Having said that, I would like to understand where you are coming from better. To do that please tune into my upcoming live sessions on similar topics, where you can call me for more solutions. Hope this was helpful. Looking forward to connecting with you. All the best!
Hello Dear. I'm a Consultant Psychologist and Sexual Health Expert. It's important for you to feel comfortable in your identity. Then find like minded community and friends like joining a club to share a hobby or meeting new people. There would be people who would understand, even if they don't, do not burden to fit in or trying to make people like you. Ignorance can't be helped. You find a space for you to express yourself. Hope that helps.

How can I honor my heritage and not hurt the feelings of my family while also embracing my modern lifestyle??
Hello anonymous, I'm Krisha Sanghvi, a counselling psychologist here to help. Balancing your heritage with a modern lifestyle can be challenging, but it's possible to honor both. Start by finding common ground where you can incorporate both traditional and modern elements into your life. This could mean celebrating cultural festivals while also pursuing contemporary hobbies or interests. Your feelings are important, and with understanding and communication, you can create a life that respects your heritage and embraces your modern lifestyle.

I'm Geeta from Ahmedabad. How can I dress for success in a way that's true to my personal style yet professional? @Preetha_Balakrishnan
Hi Geeta! I am.not an image consultant, bit I can share the tips I follow! 1) I ensure to do yoga, meditation and excercise. which makes me look decent at 51!! :-) 2) What ypu are inside will show up outside 3) Have some rules of what you can wear, for office, -Salwar-Kammis, I wear a lot of Lucknowi kurthas, which are confortable, for any season and looks professional,this helps to do a lot of mix and match too to quench my thirst of variety! -Suits with dupatta a proper set - See if you can buy some -Westerns- pant and nice cotton shirts 2) What is important is that the clothes are well pressed and you have your style statements done 3) One style statement for me is wearing vests over kurthas instead of chunnis..see what you can do. Overall, look within, be confident and ensure you have your own style statement, whatever you wear! Tc, Preetha
