Age 0 to 18.
18 and above wasn't that great either, but at least from that point on, it was my responsibility to improve it.
The Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about
Being beaten and scolded like an animal by my parents.

Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
A morning filled with 400 billion suns
The rising of the milky way"

3 teachers and a school principal. The principal and one of the school teachers bullied me. If I met them again today (impossible, one of them is dead anyway), I'd tell them to their face exactly what I think of them, how atrocious their behaviour was and how worthless they are. I'm not afraid of them anymore. I'd confront them without hesitation.
parental abuse and kids bullying
Wow so many with abuse - but yeah my parents and one teachers behavior towards me
Also not having independence, could never give that up now
I don't miss anything, my childhood sucked.
Yeah, I didn't like school when I was a kid. That was probably the worst thing.
The lack of love and proper family bonding and seeing my older sister being beaten with a leather belt nearly daily.
