As long as I can remember I have felt like an adult.
It is only very recently that I have been able to start to recapture some brief glimpses of memories of childlike feelings.
But I remember as a child wishing for what seemed like forever that I could be on my own and leave everyone I knew behind.
"My experience has shown me that I all too often tend to deny that which lies behind, but as I still believe, that which is denied cannot be healed." Brennan Manning, "All is Grace - A Ragamuffin Memoir"
