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.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
