Blame it on your shitty childhood and not on reading! The fact that you stopped reading also means that you read stuff which was either beyond your realm of understanding or you’ve not been smart enough to comprehend all along!.

One of the best things that happened in my life was to pick up the habit of reading from a young age.

Has done nothing but enrich my life! It’s not the only thing I do but is a very integral part and helps greatly in understanding my life and worldly view.

I just really loved to read. What fucked my love of it up was depression and not being able to retain the words I just read and concentrate. I used to be able to read a whole book in one sitting to barely 2 pages and not recall anything. It took several years but I have started to read again. I just miss the voracity.

The escape from shitty childhood that was tv and movies and staying late at school constantly being at friends houses, staying in my room etc

Honestly, even with everything I went through- I still enjoy reading. Maybe it’s because I can allow myself to escape from the world, even if only for a short while. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m only 18. So I’m still young, but I gone through a lot in my life. And I’m only realizing that my childhood was far from what is normal. When I read, I get to be happy. I’m not insecure, or anxious all the time.

So we couldn’t just enjoy reading because it was fun and you got to let your imagination run wild, or made you happy? Jeez! Not ever childhood activity had some trauma behind it.

Yes- I think the important part of this post is the word “excessive”. My mom would get books and then hide them from me so I would eat or sleep.

I am so glad not many on this thread can relate to the need to hide or escape your reality. Books were a temporary camouflage. It was a way of being present but invisible.

It’s hard to be blamed for shit if all you do is read.
