Today's solo episode is a continuation of a thread in my conversation with Cindy Kao.
"Second generational guilt" is a term I created to describe a very specific kind of guilt that I experience as a daughter of an immigrant. My feelings are not indicative of how every second generation American feels but it is an example of another layer to the emotions and experiences that children of immigrants feel. If you are one yourself, you have your own flavor of it.
In this episode, I read a blog I wrote five years ago titled "Second Generational Guilt" and then I go into the evolution of my feelings and the value and magic in writing and capturing our emotions.
