    Years Gone

    I spent most of my teenage years working trying so hard to impress my hard-assed father who was never happy. I traded nights with my friends for nights at work and cleaning the house just to get his approval. I never got it. I still haven't heard him once say "I love you" or "I"m...

    Mourning A Childhood Lost

    I spent most of my childhood trying to survive, so I feel like I never got to experience any of the fun things that make up childhood. I didn't have any friends or get to play much. I was an outcast at school and bullied a lot. I find myself now wanting to play like a little kid...

    School

    Due to my state of mental health at the time, I did miss out on a lot at school. Actually, I missed out on a lot of school. But the consequences of that which concern me are not what you would expect. Sure, I missed out on some formative learning and I haven't got my highschool...

    Missed Out!

    All that matters at any age is what you do now!  We can't waste time second guessing ourselves!  We learned a lot from our mistakes.  All we can do is try to put that knowledge into practice.  It is hard!  We are too hard on ourselves, mostly because we grew up with people...

    I Missed Out On Being a Kid

    I feel like I missed out on living a normal child hood. I grew up way to fast and didn't get a chance to be a kid. I would never change how it happened, but I do wish I could have known what it was like.
