a difficult childhood - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
A difficult childhood presents particular problems in how to move onwards into adulthood. There is the need to form a solid foundation rather than being given one as others have through having a functional family. It is challenging, yet possible. Try not to rely on others to provide it, because if they leave it's an issue. One way is to edit your history as if it were a photo album. Visit the good memories often. The bad memories you don't suppress, you simply let them be, don't visit them deliberately. They are pages in the album you don't visit, that's all. There is making friends and romantic relationships, there is self development such as your passions, career and sport. There is faith and spirituality if you choose. Finding balance is key. Loving yourself is essential. Let good luck come. A child cannot earn such bad luck and so karma will try to balance things out by bringing you good fortune. The good universe will seek opportunities to lift you up. Be ready.
In a good and just world, childhood would be a great launchpad for the innate talents and joys of all children. On behalf of the adults, we are sorry, so very sorry, that this world is not. We are working on it. We have talents. We are looking for opportunities to make this world fit for you. Every child deserves love and protection, you do too.
A difficult childhood should be a rare thing, a chance for healthy communities to bond around a common cause, to show love for a child that is one of their own. This is how it would be in a functional world, because the ratio of needy to those with energy and love to give would be in balance. So, let us dream of this better world, this love-nexus, and be willing to see how the money-nexus creates such societal harm.
The human child is born with a sensitive brain ready to adapt to its environment. Is it in a loving and safe world or a harsh survival dog-eat-dog scenario? The first feels wonderful and the brain develops a fully functional prefrontal cortex. The latter feels terrible, brain development becomes more primitive, more emotionally cold and indifferent, over 900 genes switch to shorter life, worse health modes. A difficult childhood is not simply a "gripping story" for novels and movies, it is a biological time-bomb, societal torture of children, a waste of talent, and a longterm health hazard.
