It's not so much, "hard done by", as... That's my life and what actually happened.
So, you've been lucky: maintained a good healthy body; have a loving family, who'd never give you up n never give up; enjoying an active life n lifestyle.
Well good for you, but don't use that blessed experience to look down on someone who has never had that, or judge them for their unfortunate life. Be glad, that you've not had to go through it.
I've not had the worse life, or childhood. Was I tossed about and went to 9 different education establishments, yes; was I abused by those caring for me, yes; did I get sent to 30 different state homes/foster families/boarding schools, yes; did my natural parents at 6 months old decided that despite punching/slapping/kicking/tossing about the room/smacking with objects, give me up to the state, yes.
I don't want sympathy, as I said before, I want acceptance n understanding, I want.people to realise, that behind my keyboard, sits someone that's had shit thrown at him, bit despite that, doesn't give up, doesn't make excuses, but trys to move on n make the best of what he has.
Be grateful, life has protected you from a life like that. Feel blessed, that you maintain a good healthy weight, and can jump on a bike n go for a nice long bike ride. Be thankful, not judging. Count your blessings, that you don't need to take morphine to get going in the morning.
In my twenties, I was doing 100 mile bike rides a day, or time trials in a bike group. I could lift a 14ft steel joist by myself, or that I could push a 12 seater mini bus by myself to jump start it. In my twenties I could extend my.legs on that weights machine, set it to heaviest, then do 100 reps using JUST my toes.
Been there, got many t-shirts, then sold them to pay bills, cos I couldn't work n pay the bills.
If i.could wake up in the morning g and have my health n physical body restored, you wouldn't see me on here again. I'd be working, or holidaying, I'd be out exercising, spending a couple hours down the park having a kick-about!
Enjoy your health, but don't be smug, that's not nice or nice to know. Be glad you didnt spend 9 hrs at the hospital yesterday, cos you have an infection in your limph gland's under your armpits, but don't mock someone for that.
