My dad has recently mastered the task of converting old video tapes to an DVD format.
He sent me a video of me singing at age 10 in the mail. It was a surprise in many ways.
The video made me laugh at first and it was strange to view my younger self in motion.
I was so happy, confident and so... undamaged.
Then I became sad with the thought 'undamaged'.
Only a few years after this video was made, everything changed.
I changed and my life changed forever.
I cannot go back in time and become unaffected.
I cannot change the secret sufferings I endured nor how it came to shape me.
But I think this is most people's story in some way isn't it?
Experiences can bring pain but through it your learn and grow.
I have grown. ♥
