Wow...you're in the same group as Einstein!
Often young people are told negatives things, the the adults who said it to them must feel awful after learning what they have become!

i was told some awful terrible things growing up. the two poems that i got published just happened to be ones i wrote in high school. i had a couple of teachers read them for their opinions and they told me that they weren't very good. after publishing them, i went back to the school to find those teachers but unfortunately, they had already retired.

Have you ever spoken to any of your other teachers?

i was able to find my business/job co-op teacher from high school and chatted with him for a few one day. i went back to my elementary school about 18 yrs ago and couldn't find any teachers i knew there. i took my partner with me about a yr ago to show them where i went to school at and the school was gone and the beginnings of new housing going up in its place. i went to a private religious middle school that i don't believe in anymore.

good thing you know that living in the present is better than living in the past!
