Things that changed my life, rock music, a rape, an abusive boyfriend, betrayal of a close friend, marriage, children, and a sick elder parent.... oh and hockey and Coast to coast

Go Blackhawks!

I guess it's good to talk but does anyone even care about anyone's situation other than one self and their family.

Traumatic events in my life helped shape me into the person I am in the sense that I like to help others who are emotionally troubled.

I think most people care.  The problem is if we let in too many problems we become overwhelmed.

Major life shapers:

-Being raised by my grandparents after being completely abandoned by my biodad at birth and biomom not wanting me.

-Attending an exclusive private school where what you wore and what you had far outweighed the person you actually were.  I was picked on and bullied regularly by the "it" kids.

-Hanging out with the wrong kids in high school and equating sexual promiscuity with social acceptance.

-Losing my grandmother when I was 17

-Studying in Europe for a semester in college

-My first mother in law

-Beauty pageants

-Becoming a mom

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

It's safe to say that who we are in the present is dictated by our choices and the choices of those around us..

I'm barely twenty years old, but I'd say there a few things that have shaped me..
  • Two of my best friends committing suicide in the amount of time I've been a member on UM
  • My elder half-sisters getting arrested, put in institutions in my youth, running away, etc
  • Times spent with my oldest sibling, my half-brother - where he's taught me many things about being a man
  • Watching my parents write, record, and perform music over an expansive amount of time
  • My discovery of philosophy and literature; fantasy, popular science..

I would say the things that shaped me are pain, pain, and more pain

Also the women in my life mom, grandma, and aunt. My dad wasn't around for most of my childhood. I think the last time I saw him was when I was six years old. I wouldn't even remember what he looked like If I wasn't a spitting image of him.

Lastly my seclusion from pretty much everything, I was sickly as a child and couldn't do a lot of the things other kids my age did so I would pretty much just read, and through that I think I learned that I could only truly depend on myself, and that might be why I keep a very small circle of friends

Clinical depression. I've had it since it was a child. You can bet that my outlook on life, growing up and today, is not exactly cheery.

Everything you ever experience in life plays a part in who you are, you are the sum of your life. Even the tiny things affect you in some way, and though that way may seem insignificant now it may in the future become something major.

my greatest influences as a child?
  . My first salmon  30 lbs 3 ozs and it was three inches longer than I was tall I was eleven and this hooked me on fishing forever ( don't get out much anymore but once upon a time.....)
> My first rifle at 15 and a half.
  > cooking with my mother, age ten and up
> all the animals we raised as pets and for food
  >My first deer  
  the influences as an adult I won't talk about
