No, You aren't. Plenty cry over this issue. Missing a childhood, is often something you can't fix. I myself, occasionally may get "Upset" at the thought of my missed childhood, but sometimes, you have to grow up fast. I couldn't sit there and enjoy childhood when I had brothers and sisters to take care of. Ah, The chores of a "Big Bro". But, I made it. And that's what matters. But, if crying makes you feel better, then let your tears continue on, friend. But cheer up, because there is a new day ahead. I hope this helps. And as always, Have a good day.
No you aren't alone. I think we all have these memories. Some good, some not so good. But think of all we have learned from our childhood....again, some good, some not so good. I had a great childhood, so luckily for me my memories are beyond good. Other's on the other hand, had horrific childhoods, so I am pretty certain that they are glad to just have "made it through it".
No, I don't really cry over the issue of how fast my life goes, but I aint gonna lie, I do fear the future somewhat--Primarily because I feel like a fossil and culture and technology is changing faster and faster. Sometimes I miss SOME aspects of my childhood. I sure don't miss the helplessness or powerlessness of many parts of it. (Not that I have an overabundance of helpFULness or power, but testosterone, size, and lessons from the school of hard knocks, helps to keep SOME tears at bay.)
You are not alone at all. It is very, very common for people as they grow up to want their childhood. It's full of innocence and being naive, which can be amazing if you don't want all of these hardships. (Almost) everyone misses these things. I cry very often at the thought of losing my childhood, and nothing can make it better. There are songs and movies that are so nostalgic, it hurts (like Take on Me by Aha). It seems that the more you enjoy it, the more you miss your life. I never have wanted my life to zip by, or to grow up fast. I can only say that you never lose your childhood, it is just in your memories and in the past. I believe that once we die, we can relive whatever part of history we want. We could be a blade of grass or a bird or a baby. I will see you in preschool, my friend.
