Do not feel accepted

I do not know if it is my anxiety kicking in, but recently I have felt like I am not very accepted into the Jewish community. My father is 100% Ashkenazi and my mother is an Orthodox Jew by choice from Iraq. I do not know why this confuses people so much, especially considering that Israel is compromised of 60% Mizrahi or Sephardic Jews. When I tell people my lineage they look at me like I am some crazy messianic Jew who is trying to force my way into being a Jew. Its so sad and hard for me especially because I want to wear my kippah and magen david proudly, but what’s the point if my own people would rather have me not 🙁
