From Priya

Hi, I’m Priya. I’m 28, living in Manchester, and I’ve been struggling with the pressure of family expectations. I come from a traditional Indian family, and they have high expectations for my career and personal life. It’s been a constant source of stress and anxiety.

My parents want me to be successful in my career, to marry a nice Indian boy, to start a family. But my own dreams and goals don’t align with theirs. I want to travel, to pursue my passion for art, to live life on my own terms. But every time I try to talk to them about it, it ends in a fight. They don’t understand, and I feel like I’m constantly disappointing them.

The pressure is overwhelming. I’m working in a job I hate just to meet their expectations, and it’s affecting my mental health. I’m anxious and depressed, and I feel trapped. I want to follow my own path, but the fear of letting them down is paralyzing.

I’ve started seeing a therapist, which helps, but it’s a slow process. Some days are better than others, but the bad days are really bad. I feel like I’m drowning, like I’ll never feel free. The isolation is the worst. My friends don’t really understand, and I don’t want to burden them with my problems. I feel so alone.
