    A Glimpse Of How My Childhood Shaped The Rest Of My Life

    Let me take you back to elementary school. A shy, quiet child sitting in his seat, not a soul to talk to. That's me. Yeah, a lot of kids can relate but can they also say they have been slowly gaining weight, losing energy, etc. with absolutely no sound reasoning as to why that...

    Yep...

    I just hated the fact that I could not ever be a child. I was always taking care of my sister, my parents when they were too drunk to do anything other than fall all over the place. I make sure now, that my kids have a childhood that they will look back on in life and hopefully...

    Too Much Of A Good Thing Can Be Bad

    I know my story doesn't come close to being as bad as others, but I hated my childhood and this is why. I'll be the first one to say that I lived the high life as a child. I was homeschooled but rarely did any schoolwork. I was an only child and was spoiled. I went out with my...
