    Not Exactly the Person...

    Because I can very well stand the person.  What I can't stand is HOW they blame their childhood for everything when they are currently adults who should be able to think with their own minds.  It sounds harsh, but I think it's true.  My friend is 27 years old and...

    Childhood Was Difficult, Yes. However...

    It's not an excuse. My childhood was great, up until middle school when I started making some rash, and very idiotic decisions. I tried to please everyone, which resulted in me almost losing the best friend I've ever had. I hurt her way too many times, and it still infuriates me...
