    It would be the moment my Mum left; she needed space. She came back a couple  of years later, but it was too late. I'd already got fed up of playing housewife and cook and I had issues. Yeah, hated that moment; wish I could change it still. Nothing worse than being older then your years; I was 12 smile

      Thank you for sharing, Gabriel. I will attempt to deal with these types of problems in the new hub "Nurturing Your Social and Spiritual Life" on which I'm working. Please check back in a few days. May peace fill your  whole being to heal all hurts.

      It is really difficult having to grow up suddenly and before your time due to a parents lack in coping and responsibility. Just remember you are a strong person for adapting and stepping up when you were needed regardless of your age.

    It would have to be the day we moved from the house that has been the family home for years to a rent house. That started a trend of moving several times. One of the moves forced me to change school and to try to make new friends. I think I was about nine at that point and was becoming extremely self-conscious about my shortcomings. Having to deal with those issues with a whole new audience was very difficult. I do not know if life would have been better if we had stayed in the old house. It could had been worse in the final analysis. However, we will never know.

      Yes, transitions can be difficult. Some of us adapt better than others. See each day as a wonderful gift filled with new discoveries and opportunities. We are all connected to one another. God has His perfect plan for you always.

    Ignoring my dad's discouragement and trying out for junior high and then onto high school football.  I wanted to be a wide receiver and had the necessary talent for it.  It would have certainly changed my life and my ego for the better as a young adult.

      RavenBiker, I believe in reincarnation, and I truly think you will have the opportunity to be a wide receiver, possibly in the next life. In the meantime, I hope you are interacting with at least one male high school student to help him play football

    After my dad died, my mom was alone and lonely so we moved to Oregon to be near her sister. It was a huge change from So. Calif.   I hated it with a passion and after 5 months we moved back to So. Calif.  If I could change it, we never would have moved in the first place.

    Moving back, friendships weren't quite the same, school seemed weird, my best friend had found other kids to play with and the whole thing was totally awkward.

      Your perception had changed. Your resentment undoubtedly changed what I call "auric frequency," thus old relationships no longer served your needs. See that whole problem as a learning experience and fill it with the positive vibration of love.

      Well truthfully, I don't even think about it anymore. But the question asked so I searched my "memory bank" for an appropriate response.  I'm over it by now at my age.

    One moment to change from my childhood is  when I was  bed wetting. I hated doing it as a young boy but it just happened naturally and it finally stopped naturally I could n't stop it but I hated it and I wanted it to end.

      It's easy to blame yourself for something that you believe to be different from your age-group peers, but bodily functions are nothing to hate. And, you overcame the circumstance! The memory helps you to have compassion for others' problems.

    The moment of my conception. I suspect I would have chosen different parents. smile

      Interesting comment. I, too, believe we choose our parents prior to conception. You did choose, however, and every situation has its positive aspects to assist in our spiritual growth. Approach your parents' relationship to you without condition.

    That would have to be the first girl I went out with on a date just because she was ranting on and on about her supposed 'ex-boyfriend' and I was smart enough to realize I was used as her second to make him jealous.

      Young men are very competitive for feminine favors; this is reflected in nature. You do not have to compete. Hold onto your self-esteem, and your perfect mate, if you don't already have her, will naturally be attracted to you.

    My most regretted moment over which I had no control was when we moved to a new town at my awkward age of 11, away from my childhood friends and at the same time my older siblings had all left home.  It was traumatic.
    My most regretted moment which I could have prevented myself was when I smashed my mother's antique cut crystal bowl to try to get her to give in to a demand, and that she gave in and was terribly hurt.

      We each have free will, which begins around the age of 8 years, to choose our feelings. Difficult experiences help us to develop strength of character and wisdom. Bless those situations. Forgive yourself for breaking the bowl.

      Thanks, dear. I'm 81 and fully aware of taking responsibility for one's own feelings & behavior.  The question asked to recall childhood times one would have changed. They needed explanation.  I regret it, but forgive myself for the hurtfu lbehav

    I would have given my old best friend a ride and let her know she could always come to me. That she could always call me. That I am Here. Then maybe should would still be.

      Wow, Aupriann. That's a moment I would help you revisit and change if I could. sad

      Realize that your friend is still with you. She is simply out of physical embodiment. It is important that you not feel any guilt. She made a choice. and we all have our appointed time. God's kingdom is ever beautiful--and you are in the midst of it!

    I suppose I'd chose not to have a disability.
    It was very difficult growing up in the era I did.
    I sort of feel guilty because I was bullied and thought I deserved it.
    Even as an adult people see there is something bad about having been born with a disability.
    Kids were just as cruel then as they are now.
    I didn't want to be different. But I guess I was.

      Lor, everyone is an individual, but we all share one common light. Remember Christ forgave those who persecuted him, and then resurrected and ascended. We are to follow his example. There is no need or room for guilt. Celebrate your individuality!
