Too poor to sit?

As far back as I can remember, my mother had a negative view of squatting.  As a child when I squatted instead of sitting down or kneeling, my mother would always ask me “Are you too poor to sit or kneel?”  I still don’t understood why she thought so, but I started thinking like her.  I believe squatting makes someone looks poor.  This is not true, I know, but well if you hear an opinion countless times from childhood, you start believing it.  As a result, I stopped squatting after hearing this a few times and you still wouldn’t catch me squatting.

Isn’t it tiring to have endless opinions about everything, including squatting?!!!  I think I am just missing my mother, hence this post.  🙂

Have a great weekend, all (mine has started).

    Missing your mother is a perfectly good reason for writing a post. And this on his interesting because I’d never thought about it. I no longer squat.Not because doing so makes me look poor, but because it hurts my knees!
