I've had a problematic idea of childhood. In a few lines,
-So I wore diapers back then? Shut up already. This is now, not back then.
-Someone held me on her lap when I was a child? Don't remember the past, this is now.
-I emptied the whole contents of the fridge on the floor? Well, that was that animal, 3 years old. I relate to that person as much as I could relate to unicellular organisms that we're supposed to be developed from.
-Pic of me at young age? I had unattractive naivety and a wrong haircut. I understand it's a mandatory shame for everyone. I envy those who got through it with less shame.
-You're telling me you took care of me, and I had diarrhea one day? I'm thinking, it's a pity that young persons must be taken care of at young age, we should be born self-sufficient without the need of a caretaker.
-I was like XYZ back then? That's a disgrace. Now my values are individuality, honor, capability, independence - none of which I could do back then. None of them were available to me. I was a damned disgrace of a person. I didn't provide my own money. I didn't make my own food. I behaved like a kid, it was a disgrace.
-I wasn't knowledgeable enough to make good decisions on my own life. That's completely .. uhh.. now.. this is no joke, if I would cry, I would cry at this point. This is fucking insane. No-one should live like this. It was terrible. Oh my god. I am not joking with you. This point ... this last point.. this is terrible. I was a damned bag of amoeba back then. Oh my god.
I could go on and on but you get the point.
So, what do you think of your childhood, as thinking from the viewpoint of someone who's not a child?
