    Still A Kid

    But Why Is This So Unusual?

    On My Own

    I am now 18. Inevitably, I'll have to adjust to the change I will soon encounter, but still, I am hesitant. This is all I've ever known and although I REALLY want to get on with my life I am unsure if I will be able to handle all of this on my own.

    I'm Not Sure She Ever Will.

    She Hasn't Grown Up And Never Will, But I Love Her!

    The little girl in me hasn't grown up and I do know why. She's still hurt, afraid and feels lonely. She is the part of me that split off when I was at her age, thanks to my miserable abusive parents. I didn't understand when she took over at times, but now that we've arranged...

    Little Girl

    As A Little Girl I......

    Got away with all manner of things where my parents were concerned! I still do, and my parents still don't lecture me about the things I do, people I see. I think gone way a person develops should be guided by parents but in a very relaxed way, to coax rather than berate.
