    I now filter what I say and I think the older I got the less information  I am likely to give out.

    When your younger you are more inclined to answer everything asked of you, now I would tell someone to mind their own business. Maybe it's the age we are in but I think 13 years ago things were a lot different.

    Only slightly. Our personalities are mostly set from birth. We can see how children will turn out as early as age 2 or 3.

    Yes, very much.  At 13 I was very shy, awkward and totally at the mercy of what other people thought (or what I thought they thought) of me.  I guess that is pretty typical at 13.

    Now I am not shy but do tend to be a loner. I am not afraid to take a stand.  I would like to be liked, but it isn't necessary for my self esteem.

    Yes!  Thank God!

    I was extremely timid, a people pleaser, a crybaby, terrified of everything, and so wanted human approval!

    Looking back, I don't know who that person was. 

    Alot happened to me between the ages of 13 and 19.  By that time I was a train wreck with feet.

    At age 19 I walked into a church.  I can't remember the exact words the minister said, but I still have it logged in my diary about walking into that building. 

    It was the beginning of my restoration and the start of my journey into a spiritual life with God and His Son Jesus Christ as my life-long Guides.

    I wish I had known as a child He was the answer to everything, but I was never told that. 

    However, despite all the trials, tribulations, and mistakes I have made, experience has, hopefully, made me a better and wiser person. 

    Also, I pray God will use me to inspire others through writing and speaking and keep me here awhile.  I am so thankful for the wonderful people I have already met through HubPages.

    Blessings to all, Sincerely, Sparklea smile
