    everyone seems to be doing exciting things with their life, it's not fair.
    i'm sick of my family being so strict.
    i want to experience and travel but my parents would never let me do those things unless i decide to get married -___- ffs.
    i hate this backwards culture.

    i'm not even allowed to stay out late with friends.
    i get so jealous of my people who are allowed to travel, even if it's just a day trip to london.

    i'm actually starting to feel depressed.
    i've got no real friends, i hate uni, and i'm bored with life. this year has been the worst

    You are at uni, which means you are a legal adult... therefore your parents cannot force you to do anything you don't want to, unless you let them, in which case there is no point complaining. Help yourself.

    i know but you don't understand what it's like living with strict parents who are also very religious. it's frowned upon for a woman to travel alone or with friends :/

    Okay, I'm going to be a ***** and tell you to stop being such a coward.
    If you want to go to London to study then get a job, save some money and when you've finished your undergraduate degree, move out and study in London.
    You don't need your parent's permission to do so, if you're financially able to then do it.

    It seems as though you're choosing to abide by their rules - if you really wanted to move out or simply, not follow your parent's rules then why don't you?

    I honestly don't understand the whole 'I don't wan to disobey my parents' thing since unless you were making morally bad decisions in your life, I think you should be making your own decisions.

    Unfortunately, I'm Bengali, temporarily stuck in this stupid Bengali environment surrounded by idiots who agree with their backwards culture but I don't let culture or religion dictate my life; I'm in charge of my life, it's as simple as that.

    Asia is a very big place. Do you hail from the siberian tundra, the steppes of Kazakhstan, the deserts of Pakisan, the Vietnamese jungles or perhaps the Japanese islands?

    I could only guess.
