Me too! I have pictures of me as a preschooler outside in the early morning all by myself enjoying the beauty of the world. I’d go talk to the dog, feel the wind on my face, and pray.
And yes, I used to be very literal as well. I didn’t understand jokes, was clumsy and poorly coordinated, and was bullied, etc. They used to grade you in gym class and it killed my GPA.
You’re right – it gets better and better as I age.
Thank you for sharing your story with me:)!
I’m wishing you all the best!
