    Lost Memories...

    I am going to try this in 3rd point. There was this girl who loved to laugh, she would try to make everyone happy around her. She would say stupid things and do stupid stuff just to be noticed. But her momma would always yell at her to be mature, stop acting immature. She...

    Not All, But Some

    My mom and dad divorced when I was about 18 months old and I spent most of my time in my mom's house along with half-brothers and half-sisters. Yes, it was dysfunctional but I can't say it was horrible (I would be with my dad almost every weekend). When I turned ten, it...

    I don't remember much of my childhood,

    but what I do remember isn't that great. I was molested by my cousin from the age of 2-4. That's my first memory. I was also molest on two more separate occasions but that's a different story. My dad was a drunk and my mom wasn't much better. She worked 3 jobs so she wasn't...

    Falling Into Isolation

    Growing up was somewhat normal until the early teen years when I ran into some bullying incidents from various people. In addition to this I had strict parents who weren't open to opinions or discussion and I fell into videogames to pass the time away. I eventually got into...

    Hospital Or Funerals

    I'm still a child now, and yet I don't feel like one. I didn't have a happy childhood, barely one at all. I don't even have a happy future. Most of my childhood consisted of me watching people dying or almost dying myself. I watched a lot of close people to me die, like my twin...

    The Latter Part Of My Childhood

    The first nine years of my life were mostly wonderful, although my mother was very strict. My childhood "ended" in 1981 when I was almost ten. That's when my brother Andrew, aged 8, was kidnapped by an acquaintance of our family and held hostage for three weeks. He survived and...

    The Life I Never Had

    My childhood stopped at 11.

    I had to help bring up my siblings, due to my father working away and the childrens' special needs. In the later years, my mother was too ill to deal with it alone. I'm not bitter about it. My childhood was pretty rotten anyway, with only a couple of good years in between. My...
