Do we like being Argentinian?
Do you like being Argentine? What would you answer if someone asked you that question? Yes, no doubt. Argentines are inflated every time we talk about our country. We do it with pride, passion. We are convinced that there is no place more incredible than Argentina and no more wonderful people than Argentines.
My mouth fills with beautiful words every time I have to explain to a foreigner what Argentinais about. Every time I talk about this intense experience of being Argentinean. Every time I describe our landscapes, our customs, our tastes. When I speak of my land, Argentina is undoubtedly the best country in the world.
But then we have the other side. Then there’s what happens inside doors. Then we are Argentines when we talk about Argentina with other Argentines. So, it’s all complaints, reproaches. It’s all bad news. So, we’re the worst in the world. And everything outside for sure is better than this, even if we have no idea.
How can we survive in the face of this duality? How can we genuinely feel the best and worst, depending on the context? It seems that Argentina for Argentines is one and for external ones it is another. A reality split in two, with the good out and the bad inside.
That’s how we are: extremists and duals. Proud and strict. Exaggerated, for good and for bad. But, in spite of everything, do we like being Argentinian? A million times YES.
Argentina, licenciada en Comunicación Social y correctora. Me apasiona la escritura, la propia y la ajena. Mi amor por las palabras, por las frases mágicas y perfectas, me llevó a dirigir mi carrera profesional hacia la redacción, a lo que luego sumé la corrección para mejorar mis textos y, también, los de otros autores. Porque una imagen no siempre vale más que mil palabras. Gracias por leerme.
