All have different childhood memories some are happy ones while others are sad. In my case, the most saddening memory of my childhood is the day my father passed on. It was just when my parent introduced me to my academic life then he became sick. He was suffering from kidney failure which was worsening as days went by. It was a saddening moment and felt like the universe was depriving of my fatherly love. The worst of it all is being neglected by your family members who never paid any attention to our well-being. They gave up on us after the burial ceremony and never wanted to be involved with us.
Waking up early to go to school is something not every child wished for especially me. Most children imagined was having a day off and playing none stop after that, watching cartoons. But waking up early for school was hectic for me, that is where the struggle with my mother begun. Some times had to pretend that am not feeling well just to skip going to school or waking up early but nobody fell for my tricks. After, all it was the nature of all kids to create fake excuses not to wake up early.
Another instance of a saddening childhood memory is when my leg was broken. The doctors claimed that it was a mere leg injury only for the situation to be worse. After numerous checkups, the doctors discovered an infection in my bones that is not properly treated would have left me paralyzed. For a certain time, they recommended the use of a wheelchair to move around. The thought of not being able to walk again was painful. With time and treatment, progress was made which has ensured that am in good health up to date.
These are just a few of the memories that from my view were saddening. To others, they may have different views but since we share different experiences it’s still acceptable. As the famous saying goes, one mans meat is another man’s poison. Therefore, we can never have the same experience of childhood.
