I also loved all things scary. I couldn’t sleep w/o a Michael Myers story and mom told me Jack The Ripper stories as fast as she could make them up. I’m pretty sure I was in love with Pinhead and Freddy (yes,I know…odd) So far…I haven’t been tempted to kill anyone.
What I’m finding is that I did indeed have something that is seemingly near extinct. A strong family base for roots. Through this I was taught that I was my own person,thought for myself and that I was responsible for MY OWN ACTIONS. Society,T.V.,friends and magazines were not scapegoats in our household. I was taught that everyone is different in their own ways and yet we are all the same and beautiful. No one told me “Blue is for boys” or “You can’t wear that,you’re a girl.” I also didn’t have anyone kissing my ass. Everything I did wasn’t perfect. That prepared me for the real world. So as I grew my wings,I grew them as I saw fit and changed them as needed.
You can be anything you want in this life. Choose to be an amazing person,accountable for your own actions, that tries everyday to see the best in themselves and others. And when doesn’t,works to correct it or to uplift and help. And then,PLEASE,pass that down to your children.
