I found this lovely article last night. And then I read it a couple times. I don't know what to say about it, other than that it's well worth reading.
I think the thing is, I've felt this way. I've even thought about writing a blog on the subject. But it's hard to pull it all together, these things build up, they happen over time, I barely remember anything before I was 6.
So. If you have some time, I would highly suggest reading this post. The rest of the blog is fantastic as well, I was disappointed there weren't more I could read.
