365 Days of Writing Prompts: Day 40

February 9, 2016

Childhood revisted

Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you
wish had been different about your childhood?

Actually, there are several things I wish had been different.

I wish my mother had been more engaged with me and not made me feel so abandoned.

I wish my parents had encouraged my dreams of being a writer instead of viewing it as something whimsical and/or non-productive.

I wish fellow classmates had not been so cruel, so demeaning, so bitchy towards me and instead had accepted me for who I was – odd, eccentric, eclectic, original, individual

I wish I could have been closer to my siblings and wanted to be a part of their lives long after childhood. Their teasing and taunting left me feeling distant. Sometimes I still feel that way toward them.

And finally, I wish I hadn’t been such a quiet, introverted teenager and could have been more outgoing and spontaneous.

  1. None of that need define you any longer 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 it doesn’t and if it hadn’t been for that prompt, I doubt I would have reflected back that deeply. I try to live only in the present these days 🙂

  2. Thank you 🙂
