But a non-blue smurf reduces my childhood memories to a swirling mass of confusion and ignorance... :-fly)

I'm still living my childhood :3 (And always will be :-P) But my "10 years and under" folder was already pretty unorganized... You rendered my swirling mass of confusion and ignorance into a swirling mass of confusion and ignorance... if that makes any sense at all XD <:smurf

Oh! Oh! I can answer this one!!! Pick me!!!

Oh hey there, Ryobi!

Anyone else...? *<:)

Mine was water but instead of hydrogen and oxygen, it was doubt layered between anxieties and exposure therapy. Then the temple pissed religious doctrine into the mix and flushed it all down the loo.  :-D

  Be glad of those challenges of earlier life.  Hard though they may have been, they are what help to define us now.  Look at it this way, all those well to do, never have to suffer, fight for the things they needed in life, they turn out to be pompous empty headed fools with delusions of self importance.  Paris Hilton comes immediately to mind.  The hardest lesson learned is the one that will stay with you the longest, if it does not kill you (either physical or mentally) then you will be stronger for it.

 Wow.. I'm not even going to go into my childhood... or adulthood.... Moloch and Drake remember when I posted about it before. It's hard to go into that much detail and leave it out like that. Really hard.

 But Muerte is right. It will make you stronger. It also has made me a bit of an @sshole. I don't want to hear someone's 'poor me' story when they try to use it as a crutch. It's a BS excuse.

My childhood was a mix of awesomeness and loneliness (Yeah, weird mix, I know...) For a good part I would spend time with my friends (Who are still my firneds, they're what you'd call 'real friends'. One of them I've known since birth; our families knew each other before we were born) and play these weird imaginary games.. We had created this whole imaginary world and all...

On the other hand, when I moved away from there I couldn't see them as often and its tough to make new friends when the ones you have, you've known since you were like 2 at most... So I ended up being alone. It's taught me many things, though, so I agree with it shaping who we are now and making us stronger. After moving everything went downhill for me socially speaking. At the time I was the regular kid who only wanted to have fun, then slowly I started having darker and darker thoughts and kids just love to pick on the solitary one. In a way, I didn't mind being alone because I didn't want to be friends with these people, but the hate still grew. I once got in a fight with the big bully of the school. He had never really picked on me, but in sixth grade he decided he'd try... Bad decision, he regretted it. I try to keep my anger under control, but psychologists say people like me, who never manifest their anger or vent it, are the most dangerous.

In a way, I like it that way. I know if I ever need it, I have the greatest weapon of all right there. :wink: 0:)

I really wanted to talk about my childhood, but if I ever do, and I doubt I will ever do that sincerely, that'll either be in the Poems or the Teen Thread...

  I don't know if it is Molochs influence or not, but I am enjoying your company more and more.

No, no my childhood wasn't difficult, I was sort of joking before. Therapy? Anxiety? Religious doctrine? I'm glad that's basically all I've dealt with. In fact, I've had all the material joys a kid could ask for, food in the fridge, toys, internet access, clothes, a bed, money. Medical help when I needed it (which I did). It was never unecessarily difficult and the only way it's made me stronger is in the sense that I am 'getting better'.

I know that the mind is not strong unless honed constantly over a lifetime, that nothing is strong unless you work at it and I guess that's the lesson I've learnt from childhood. I'm not like you Meurte, or you Kubesix, I'm not strong minded or strong-willed, I don't possess much inner-power and I definitely don't have a good coping mechanism (Kadesh...)! Any challenges I have, I don't throw myself at them, I don't believe I can hide well, instead and for lack of a better phrase, I wait and I listen closely and I slowly chip away at every obstacle with those traits instead.

It's the way I was raised; through my own mistakes and downfalls. Take things at a steady pace and the momentum you build up means you'll never have to stop.

 Mo's had a bit of an influence on me, but that's just the way I am. I so badly want to say something here... but it's... eh... anyway... I'll substitute.... When you've been *blah blah blah blah blah blah* Then you have no sympathy for the people that just use what they've been through as a crutch or an excuse. Man up and accept that you eff'd up... don't give me that whiny @ss crap about "but I had a hard childhood"  :cry:  Look around... it's more normal to have a hard childhood than it is to have a good one.

 Sorry... I get a bit pissy over that one..  :roll:
