I was born Southern but I've always had the heart of a Northerner. Is that normal or I am a traitor to the South? (e.g. born in Mississippi but live in Michigan.)

It really doesn’t matter and isn’t anything that is new.

It's a free country, enjoy being a northerner. Thank goodness in America we can choose where we live and what we consider ourselves to be. Remember coke is called a "pop" up there and use lots of phrases like "you betcha" and "dontcha know" and you'll fit in fine. Never complain about winter either, Midwest folks pride themselves on winter toughness.

No region is monolithic. There are likely quite a few people in your hometown who feel just like you do. I'm a native southerner, but I've lived all over. I have felt very at home every place I've lived in some ways, but also a little out of place in some ways. I think that's life.

I grew up in the West but have the heart of a Midwesterner. Now that I'm in the Midwest I feel much more at home. If you like Michigan go for it!

Home is where the heart is, and that’s not always where you were born or raised.

No, it is not normal but whatever floats your boat.

I was born in the NE, but never felt I had belonged there. Can't remember a time I had liked it. Moved around. Some people don't feel America is their home either--they feel more European or maybe S. American or Mexican. Chinese culture appeals to some. They're much harder fixes though.
