I Miss My Childhood

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,055 People

    When I was a kid I was much happier.

    I had not been as exposed to the world as I am now. My homework was not hard and did not take me three hours a night to do.

    I Just Miss It

         I mostly miss the simplicity of it. There weren't complicated problems, there was always a right answer and a wrong one. I miss my innocence a lot too. I think I'd be way better off without most of the stuff I know about now. I miss my childhood a lot. I miss my...

    I Grew Up In The 70s In Pa.

    I remember oh to well the joys of growing up in the 70s, me and my sister, and brother. It was 6 of us, but the 2 little ones my mom kept close,  and it was a 7 year different with my older brother, so he didn't hangout with us. Me and my sister was a year apart, and my brother...

    The Dictation (o Ditado)

    Every day was the same thing. After the morning break, we entered the classroom and the teacher dictated text. I do not know how long it took, it was an activity that I liked, because hardly gave errors. After the dictation, the rules were always the same: we exchanged text with...

    Everything felt so easy.

    Everything was so easy. There was so little to worry about. I've been through too much ****, been thrown out, lost four close people from suicide, I have a bad time accepting myself and who I am... Wish I lived as a child for the rest of my life.

    Then And Now

    I grew up in northeastern Kentucky in the mid 50's/early 60's..     We never locked our doors.  The worst thing that happened was the neighbor kids "broke in  (aka opened the door)" to our basement and took spray paint to "decorate" my dad's new '58 Oldsmobile.  Their...

    Those Were the Days

    There's so much I miss from my childhood. I miss being naive and ignorant of the world. Not knowing about how cruel the world can be.  I miss when hanging out with friends, no one saw color or wealth. I miss the days of being innocent and innocence was all I knew. And most...

    The people I knew, the places I've been

    and grew up in, the friends I had, the bliss of innocence, the responsibilities I never had, the lack of worry, the lack of anxiety, the feeling of safety, the feeling of trust... I just miss the simple fact that I once was truly happy and free of worry.

    I miss not worrying about anything.

    I miss not caring about what other people thinks. I miss that you could build a sandcastle with Sarah and then just leave to play with cars with Lisa without any drama. I miss not caring about my look or body.
