¿Sera Verdad Que las Latinas Tratan las Relaciones Diferentes Comparando con Otras Razas? Is It True Latina Women Treat Relationships Differently Compared to Other Races?

Ayer escuche una conversacion entre dos chicas esperando el autobus. Hablaban acerca sus parejas y como la relacion de sus padres le afectado. Aparentaba que se habian criado en otro pais y una de ellas era de padres divorciados. Ella contaba como su madre aguanto abusos y infidelidades en su matrimonio hasta que finalmente sus padres se divorciaron cuando ella se fue a la universidad. La hija espreso lamento pero no por la decision de su madre aceptar el maltrato tanto tiempo. Mas porque ella misma estaba aceptando la misma situacion en su relacion presente.

Yo pase por una situacion similar con mis padres. Mi experiencia tambien afecto la formacion de mis relaciones con parejas. En mi trayectoria de amor, yo he aceptado situaciones que son menos de lo que he merecido. Ahora como adulta entiendo que las personas nos hacen lo que le aceptamos.  Hay cosas que estan bajo mi control, despedirme de una relacion toxica se puede.

Las Latinas tienen fama de ser buena ama de casa, tiernas, peleonas, apasionadas hasta complacientes. La verdad es que pueden haber muchisimas caracteristicas que tenemos en comun. Pero al fin del dia – todas somos mujeres. La raza o cultura no es un etiqueta para asertar como vamos a tratar una pareja. La historia y crianza de cada individuo tiene mucho mas que ver con el tipo de comportamiento que podemos tener en sociedad o relacion en general.  No aguantamos ni mas o menos que cualquiera otra mujer del mundo.

Yesterday, I caught myself eavesdropping on a chat between two women. They talked about their partners and how their parents’ relationship had affected their own. It appeared they were born in a different country. One of the two women’s parents were divorced. She told the story of how she had seen her mother put up with her father’s abuse and infidelity for years. Until finally divorcing when she left for college. The daughter expressed regret not because of her mother’s decision to accept mistreatment for so long. Instead because she, herself was doing the same thing in her present relationship with her boyfriend.

I went through a similar situation with my parents. My experience affected me in the manner I managed my relationships with men.  In my love trajectory, I also accepted situations that were less than what I deserved. Now, as an adult my understanding is that people will do to you as much as you allow them to. There are things that I can control; walking away from toxicity is doable.

Latinas have a reputation for being good homemakers, caring, feisty, passionate even complacent. The truth is that we can have similar characteristics. But at the end of the day, we are all women. The race or culture is not a label to secure how we are going to treat a partner. The background and upbringing of each individual has much more to do with the type of behavior we might take on in society or a relationship in general. We don’t put up with any more or less than any other woman in the world.
