Hey Tom/Djinn,<br />
<br />
I agree, My father split when I was two and my Mom worked all day long. So, I was more or less on my own very young. Although I must say, it gave me the opportunity to expand my horizons and hang out with a variety of people without the parental intervening. It also put me n the position to be abused by a family friend and his son, when I was between six and nine years old. I don't have any hatred towards them, I just felt it had a lot to do with my trust and commitment issues. I guess I used to be afraid to let anyone in and know me. Today it is different as I remain in control of my emotions and don't allow myself to be taken advantage of.<br />

It was go under or survive m8. I never thought of being more open cos of it but you might be right. Many think cos I was abused Id be afraid of sex but Im as entitled as anyone to have the life I choose. And I love sex Ive taken it back from those who abused it and me.<br />
<br />
I get used now and again but its still me whose in control.<br />

hey tom- my childhood/teen years were fukked, too- maybe for different reason than yours, i don't know but getting tough was my way out, too. now, i can be more open and loving to the world and humans in general 'cause i'm old enough to protect myself better now- not always successful- i'm a bit gullible but the world is worth the risk of being hurt- most of the time...

I like your thinking desieyez but my life hurt me loads for years and years when I was growing up but I had to be tough or lose altogether. <br />
<br />
Now Im older my life cant hurt me mostly cos its mine now to control.

i don't necessarily think life hurts us but toughens us or arms us with experience so that we may pass on that knowledge to those that do not possess it.

so true,so true, it just hurts so. J

that part was a joke- but i am a big believer in just what you said in your comment, treehugginjenjen. life is the most wise teacher- not always kind but very truthful...<br />
<br />
take care...

How can anyone know anything? your''re best bet is learning. Go to school or learn from the real world which is incredible. Peace,j
