Hey all!
Hope you've been doing well. I haven't posted in a while- I've moved to College Station, Texas, I'm pursuing a bachelor's degree in robotics engineering here at Texas A&M. I'm honestly seeing a lot more longhairs here than back home(I'm from San Francisco) which is pretty cool. In any case, I'm dealing with an issue over my hair with my parents. They've made it known time and time again that they are very uncomfortable with me having long hair. I'm South Asian, and it's extremely uncommon for our men to have long hair(unless you're Sikh). All the men in my family have close-cropped hairstyles that are "professional" and "clean-looking", as my parents like to say. They've been pressuring me very much to get a haircut, and I hate it. I get that having long hair is unconventional, but I hate being constantly told to get a haircut when I simply don't want to. How do I deal with this? They've been great parents otherwise, so I don't want to make them sad/angry. I just want to end this peacefully, because it's annoying.
Thanks for the help guys! :)
