"I quickly grew to dislike children and I didn’t like children, even when I was one."
Can't tell you how many times I've said this. I always preferred the company of adults (if I had to have company at all).
Was also immune to peer pressure. But that said, I reached an age (after leaving home at 15) where I decided to give it all a go to make up my own mind.
I lived quite a few very wild years, then one day looked around at my surroundings and the people I was with and a very clear thought entered my mind: I don't belong here. I'm better than this.
And my life swung back in the opposite direction.
