PDA

View Full Version : Have you ever thought back to how you used to act...

And have wondered "What was I thinking?" :vlol:

For instance, I used to be a little obnoxious around my friends, always looking for something crude to say to get a reaction, had a mild case of the spotlight phenomena, etc. Even on the forums I used to act different, posting too many help threads, taking things to seriously, blah blah.

When I look back on things I just wonder what the hell I was thinking and I'm happy I've grown into who I am now. Sometimes I feel so different from my old derp-like self :p

Any thoughts/similar instances?

If I just read things I posted pre-2011, I wonder why no one banned me just for being stupid. I am sure in 8 or 9 months, I will hate the things that I said now.

Yeah, I try not to look at any type of old post of mine for fear of dying from embarrassment.

I look back and wonder how I acted straight! I've changed so much ever since I discovered myself, and I am so much happier since then. Discovering my sexuality has so far been the turning point of my life.

On TRF, I do this all the time. :p Being that I was so young when I first joined, I said a lot of things that weren't exactly dumb but just... not cool. :vlol:

Before the forums, when I joined high school, I found it easy to get upset over bullies, I remember even crying about it at school.


But then I realise...**** that ****. So I told those bullies to **** off, I've become more honest and stronger. I don't let people drag me down and I don't take myself seriously. Infact I socialise a lot more than I ever did. I'm no longer a recluse in my own bedroom. :)

I left school to get homeschooled in 2010, the year I joined these lovely forums. :D And that changed me a lot too, it made me discover what I'm into art-wise/opinion-wise.

I cringe when I think back to some embarrassing memories in my childhood years.

In real life, no, because I can't remember it and because I feel like I've always been the same person because I only remember the recent daily life. On the forums, however, yes. I sometimes try to read the things I posted two, or three years ago and it's often a bit embarrassing.

I don't really regret much. There are some situations that I could've handled a little differently but for the most part I'm not ashamed of the way I acted. :)

I used to prance about in my mother's 'younger' clothes and wear makeup to college. I cringe now :o

Do you mean like lipstick, mascara and the works, or like powder and concealer?

EXACTLY. That's right around the time when I joined the forums AND my personality was a bit over the top haha.

I've made a lot of choices that make me cringe when I look back, shake my head, and wonder "why did I do that?"

I think I'll be okay, so long as I don't end up like this:
Hey, you know how it is when you see someone that you haven't seen since high school, and they got some dead-end job, and they're married to some woman that hates them, they got, like, three kids who think he's a joke? Wasn't there some point where he stood back and said, "Bob, don't take that job! Bob, don't marry that harpy!" You know?

:vlol:

It happens all the time, But recently I checked out a few of my old threads and I was like DA ****?!?!?! I can't believe I was like this I'm soooooo stupid and silly! :o

Yeah, I don't really regret it much though. When I think back, I'm more like "Why aren't I like that anymore?"

Every time I look back at how I used to act I pretty much hate myself, tbh.

Regarding forum life, it is interesting seeing how people change on here..well the younger members anyway! There can be a massive change in attitude from say 14 to 18. I sometimes wonder when people say it was better in the past if they have just matured a little and now find boring what they once revelled in.

Some of my older posts, especially in 2008/2009, were quite embarrassing. :o

This is what I'm like right now and I've always been like this for years. :p

However, I've definitely changed (in some respects) over the past year, I'd say for the better. ;)

When I read my old posts, I cringe.

I was thinking of making a "share your first posts thread" but this seems good enough.

I have looked back to my first few post on here, and it embarrasses me.

My first thread

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=67393

Loads of people on this site say they should have the classic controlls, classic intventory, classic weaopon system, classic fighting sytem, and classic evrything else!!!!! i mean come on !!!!!!!1 half the people say they prefer the claasic gameplay to thegend and want it for future games BUT if all they do is stick with the CLAASIC stuff than how is tombraider going to get better and improve, i think the whole point of gaming is to experiment with new gameplay and controlls as they bring out future tomb raider games, personally i would get a TINY little bit bored if for every tombraider game they brought out they were all the same in controols and everthing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i even heard someone say that they didnt like the slow motion thingy and wanted it out for the next game,, but i thought it made the game fell different and better,,,,,,,,,,, and the same with the binoculars and the magnetic grapple
for this reason i am happy that CD did the game instead of Core Desighn and i am excited about wots goin to change in TR8............

Yeah I was looking at some of the comments on Facebook from 2010...I could have died right then and there.

Yeah, sometimes I look back how I used to be even just a year ago, and think, "What was I thinking? Did I really write that?" It's weird how much I've changed in just a year. Probably this time next year I will be thinking the same things. :p

Back in late 2008 early 2009 i acted childish in many ways hence me being banned numerous times. I made posts that got deleted such as bipolar express and tripolar express.

^I think I make those now.

I'm not really embarrassed by what I say, but the spelling and grammar is pretty worse in ma old dayez.

Sometimes I'll even read a post and disagree with it or think it sounds stupid, and then realize I posted it. :p

I think back to how I behaved 2 years ago. I read over stuff I wrote 2 years ago. The thought alone is humiliating.

As a child and a teenager I was pretty normal. There are things I did, said or believed that I regret now, but nothing of major importance. Mistakes and occasional stupidity and immaturity have formed me as well as my right decisions.

Same here! :) But when I dwell on silly things I use to say, or think of things I did with the perspective I have of things now, I just wonder why I went on like that :p

Oh man, checking out comments I made on YouTube 3 years ago and comparing them to how I comment today, and man some of the things I said then, were embarrassing. Yet some of my comments were actually liked by other users:eek:
