    i'm indian and people have made comments about my background before and ive also wished that i wasn't indian so i wouldn't have to deal with it but what helped me get over that was learning about my country, it's culture, it's festivals etc so that i could make myself understand that there was nothing to be embarrassed about in fact i should be proud of where im from

    i hope this helps you too

    I would encourage you to talk with one of the ChildLine counsellors who will be able to provide you a safe space to talk more about this. The counsellors will believe you too. You can talk to a ChildLine counsellor by calling 0800 1111, logging on for a 1-2-1 chat or by sending an email by going here
