I grew up in the late 50's and as you have no doubt heard or are aware this was the "time for anything" and "Everything"
Yes I did things I regret and I am sorry for going along with others to find that ............"PLACE"
I thank Him daily for being alive I had done some really stupid things believe me and should have been dead many times .........
Boomer.........YOU cannot beat yourself up over this .....yes it was done and should have not been BUT you cannot go back and fix it now .......its in the past my friend
I find having the knowledge and the history of the "stupid" things I did very helpful in educating my daughter and other teens
I had a teen group in Bothwell where I lived prior to moving here a couple of mths ago and I plan on starting another ....where they can talk about
all that is going on peer pressure school pressure .ect......
THIS is my way of getting thru it and past it knowing I can be of help to others that may be headed down this path
What you can do is educate those around you about
the awareness and problems that come with this ........Believe me it will make you feel much better helping out others instead of constantly beating self up .........
Kudos for you
opening up so honestly and sharing this with us
I wish you all the best
Any questions email me I will be happy to help you start a group or give you pointers on how to go about
it ..........Even going to schools ( grade schools) that are up to grade 7 or 8 and sharing your story just might SAVE one child from doing what we did or at least giving them " food " for thought
