    I'm literally the same :rofl: Can barely express my angry thoughts in English that well anymore, it's all done in Dutch
    It's so much more satisfying in Dutch! When I'm angry and I speak in English it feels like I'm not really conveying what I really feel, it's very strange.

    English, Hindi, Urdu, and another regional language called Haryanvi.

    But you could make yourself think in Hindi, Urdu and Haryanvi? What age did you learn these languages?
