Thread: Just something to ponder.

  1. #1

    Default Just something to ponder.

    It's one of those nights again. Caught up in an endless stream of thought, I realized how much I have changed since I was a kid. In fact, it effects all of us, and I'd just like to remind people of this.
    What ever happened to our innocence we had when we were children?
    As I child, I can remember I took alcohol and drugs as a joke. I had never thought I would ever have any of that. Now, back to modern day. It's the other way around, in a way. I'm willing to try things that I never would have touched long ago.
    But the main point of this is:
    What happened to us? Where did we go wrong, if we did at all? Where did that innocence of our childhood go?
    Thanks for reading, and feel free to respond.

    I feel the same way even though I'm only 17, as we get older we begin to realize what the world is like. We realize the things we accepted before may be sad, bad or corrupt things. As we go through life, life grinds us down, If you get what I'm saying. Also as we get more responsibilities, we no longer have time for things we used to enjoy. Just my two cents.

    this is why you have to start thinking about life while you're still young. gotta do what you want to do if you want to feel accomplished in life. :\

    I try to do what I want to when it's not a huge deal, but when it comes to choosing a career I think it may be a different story. The career someone might want may not be able to bring enough money in to live on so they may have to settle for something that they don't particularly like so they can live comfortably. I hope everyone gets to do what they want but there are a lot of people out there that aren't.

    Innocent? Man, as I got older, I am beginning to shake off how naive I was. I mean, sure we've changed in the past, but I try not to dwell too much on it. If you have one foot in the past, and the other in the present, you could be peeing all over today.

    I have many a night like this, spending hours trying to sleep, while I end up reflecting on my past, and how it's shaped me, how I've changed since then. I used to be much more naive, I would trust people quickly, always funny, outgoing, not shy at all, now I'm extremely introverted, I'm a loner when I used to be very sociable, I trust almost no one, I'm skeptic of most things, pretty much always pessimistic, etc., and during these hours of thought, I've come to realize not only how much we change over the years, but how strong a role your environment and events play in shaping you as a person.

    Very true, it's really amazing to think about how things have changed you as a person for better or worse. Even in my short 14 years I can look back and see how different events and situations have shaped me into who I am now and it's very interesting to think about who I am going to become.

    This is more in line with how I feel. The things I never wanted to get involved with as a child I still avoid (smoking, drinking, watching porn videos, buying porn magizines, dugs, going to bars, hanging with a shifty crowd, ect ect ect)

    Pardon me if I might ruffle some feathers here, but this is how I feel I have grown: In the Bible the book of Matthew chapter 10 verse 16 "be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

    I am not a naive as I was when I was a child. I am wised up and know the world is not a perfect place. I can take care of myself on may fronts and can not be easily taken advantage of. I do not go out of my way looking for trouble. If possible I still avoid fights. However, if I am cornered, it's on!

    This is pretty much how I have been (personality wise) all my life and see no need to change.

    We grow up, at least that's what we're supposed to do. Some do a better job of it than others, some do it in spite of their funky surroundings...

    I'm not sure I was ever innocent. We did horrible things to each other as kids. It's just that because we were little kids, we did little things. As we grew older, we did bigger, more serious things. Growing up is about raising the bar. We learn more, experience new things and new ideas. We read and are bombarded by the media. All of this expands our world and as we grow older, we want to try new experiences. Puberty greatly complicates this and sexual apatite begins to dominate the picture. Then a curious things happens. The disconnected elements begin to come together, and if we are lucky, we acquire some wisdom.

    Innocence is a myth. We were simpler when young. Wisdom brings us full circle, enabling us to enjoy our memories of youth and at the same time, guiding us so that we don't make the same mistakes. Learning and experiencing produces growth. What you choose to put into yourself will determine the kind of person you will become. I suspect that through death, we become innocent.
