Did you have a rough childhood?

A lot of the ways that I think were shaped from when I was little. Some of them are good, but some are bad. I had a rough childhood but I wouldn't change it for the world. I realize that I had my limitations growing up for a reason and I also realize that the way I was raised was for the best. Some of the things that happened I'm not proud of, some coming from my own actions, and some from those of others. I've learned from those though. Right now I am going through a point in my life where I am talking to someone I hadn't really ever gotten along with. I think it's better that I am talking to this person now though, rather then much later like some people end up doing. I'm also glad I am doing it before my fiance and my wedding. We're getting a lot of things done, and a lot of things are off my chest, some recently, some I don't realize, and some that are from the past, even those I may not realize. My fiance has been great with helping me realize that it's better for me to do this, and that I can't really base what I've learned from others on my decisions now. I'm excited about actually talking to this person now but I don't want to disappoint or make anyone mad. So my questions to you are : Have you ever felt this way? With whom?

My parents divorced when I was real young and it was hard for me to deal with. My mom struggled hard to keep our heads afloat. Through life I have had some hard times like being raped, going through cancer, and some other things that like you said has shaped who I am in.

You must be very strong to admit that you had been raped. From what I've heard on t.v. it is hard for people to talk about things like that, and I can understand why. My mom never married my dad, but a funny part of that is that I never knew until I was atleast 10 years old. She laughed at me then and does now as well. You must be a very strong woman to go through what you have said you had, with being raped and having cancer. Good Luck to you in your future.

This is a really good discussion baby,and I am sure that a lot of people have opinions when it comes to their childhood,whether they think they had a rough one or if they think they had a really good one,and I know you had a rough childhood but I am glad you would not change it for the world,and I agree we all have limitations for a reason,and I know you are talking to a person you have not talked to in a long while,and I am glad that we are getting a lot of things done,and that you are getting things off of your chest,and I am glad that I have been able to help you see that it is better to do this,and I would say I had a rough childhood because my father used to drive a truck,and when he first quit he was always bad,and he would yell at me no matter what I did,so I grew up afraid of him,and I would always ask my mom to ask him things,and I still do,even though I know he loves me,and I am trying to talk to him more,and I know he is trying to be more patient since he is going to show me how to do different things,when it comes to repairs and stuff around the house,I do not want to disappoint him or hurt him,but I always try to be nice to him,and I do need to tell him I love him more,I love you with all my heart and soul, have a great day,good luck with all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

I am sorry that it took me so long to get back to you baby, but you know how many emails I had in my inbox. I am glad that you have responded to me and I have to say that I think that this is a great learning experience for both of us in regards to the person I am talking about, and to your father. I love you with all of my heart and soul, and happy postings.

Just here reading and I'm proud to say that i am not been in an experience of rough childhood. I have no biological father and i grew up with my grandparents and living with them until they all pass away, and i am thankful that i got a good stepfather that though doesn't show physical love but never abuse us in no reason. The only thing that keeps on my mind of not having my real father is that, i keep myself from any relationship that will lead me to unwanted pregnancy that in the end i will have a child without a father. So the best thing of keeping away from it is having no relationship, but i do have now long distance relationship.
