Not that life felt that easy at the time! Although I was pretty mature, there was still some teenage drama, and the fact that I was a bit more mature than most kids made going through high school seem pretty hard at times.. Just looking backwards now I see how easy I had it!
But I do understand what you mean about being more prepared for life when you come from a more adverse seembackground.. it is probably true.
That's the thing, though, isn't it?
If life is easy, you start to take things for granted and when things dramatically change, you find it hard to adapt as you were so comfortable and happy bring where you were
If you aren't settled, you are always ready to move on adapt. It's slightly easier, or so I have been told.
One thing you should know about me is I am wrong 77.3% of the time, so I wouldn't know.
