I myself had a wonderful childhood, no regrets other than the growing up kind. In fact before I was a teenager at 13 I was completely settled within myself. It was girls that disturbed me and I became obsessed with a girl on my street. It was devastating that the song "Georgy porgy kissed the girls and made them cry". I was earnest at 13. It all went downhill as a teenager. Sad but true.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
