Here I am late again for Throwback Thursday Maggie and Lauren’s challenge. This week is Maggie’s turn and she said. ” I’m back to ask you to do a little time travel with me. Today, think back on the kid you were, the you that many consider your authentic self.
This week’s prompt is: Then and Now
Think about yourself as a child and tell me :
Were you more of an introvert or an extrovert?
This is a hard one really because in all honesty I was outwardly an extravert when intruth I was a very insecure introvert trying to cope .
Did you have a boisterous or a more reserved personality?
Again I am a bit of both. If I feel uncertain or frightened I babble, giggle and talk rubbish loudly, all the time knowing I should shut up.
Were you more confident or did you tend to be insecure?
As I say I was so insecure I put on a huge show of being confident to hide my insecurities….. My eldest son does the same even now.
Were you social or were you more of a loner?
I was social but could bea loner if I needed to.
Were you a good listener or a good talker?
I was and am a good listener.
Did you like school or dread it?
I dreaded school. I hated it.
Did you like the outdoors or did you prefer staying inside?
I liked both but hated to out in bad weather. Still do.
Did you have deep thoughts about the world, the universe, etc., or did you only see as far as where you lived?
I have always worried about the world and it’s future.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I really don’t think I ever knew. Now I wish I had been born in the future and that I was a starship pilot.
Looking back, how did you fare as an adult?
I think I have done okay.
Are you still that same person or have you changed?
I am still the same person.
If you changed, was it a dramatic shift or just slight changes?
Slight if any.
Did you end up in the profession you thought you would?
No I never got to be Starbuck or Morgarna.
