I think a lot of our failures and successes in life can be traced back to singular moments in our past that may have seem inconsequential at the time but had a drastic effect on our personalities. When I was little my parents asked if I want to join a kids baseball team. I said no. I think if I joined I’d be more social and would’ve gone different places in life.
@Man with a Cat, so..... it can be traced back to birth?
@Man with a Cat, that and also all the other events or desciciosn.
@Cuactemoc4919, we are a mix of all experiences. Some are more prevelant than others. Which begs the question if i erase the memory pf a trauma or bad experience. Does one still keep the learned lesson or not.
@Man with a Cat, maybe it was the several people that bullied me cause I was too flat, or because my acne was so bad they used to called me two-face. Or the guy that told me I was too ugly to go out with. Just a few instances I guess.
@Man with a Cat, in 6th grade a girl called me ugly. I never considered myself to be handsome, but I never thought I was ugly. Those words destroyed my self esteem. It led to many years of feeling like I wasn't good enough for anyone, so I never tried. I did meet a girl my senior year. We were perfect for each other. She was my first kiss. Then she broke my heart. I've never been the same. I think if I wasn't called ugly that one time, I would've been a lot more confident in life. Instead I'm a miserable bastard. Oh well.
@Man with a Cat, maybe you said no because you weren't social to begin with?
@Man with a Cat, false. My parents asked and I joined the baseball team. Still had social anxiety from it and hated every moment.
Social interactions are overrated get a dog they don’t feel the constant need to talk about nothing
I definitely didn’t anticipate questioning everything I said following a 5 minute conversation with someone I don’t even care about...
