65 Things We All Experienced As Kids But Never Talked About With Anyone

Ready to blush? Just kidding—nobody enjoys making their cheeks burn out of involuntary embarrassment. But this time we are taking you on an emotional rollercoaster where it may be the only option.

It’s called blast from the past. Remember your 8-year-old self drinking coke in a wine glass thinking you were as tipsy as auntie Becky at a family reunion barbecue, ready to pass out on the floor and beg for salvation? What about the time you cried for 10 days straight after finding out that gum you swallowed would stay in your stomach forever? What if I told you that you’re not the only one? In fact, that ginger kid from school, your cousin from Wyoming, and I were all secretly doing the same odd things. So, let’s go down this cringe-inducing memory lane where all our little secrets are laid out on the table.

Pandas, is anyone having a déjà vu moment? Then share your experiences in the comments.

Have you ever noticed how nostalgic people suddenly get when talking about their childhood memories? We cherish those powerful memories and carry them throughout our lives. Various studies have suggested that these memories help to build a sense of our identities, form relationships, and make sound choices later in life.

It turns out that nostalgic reminiscence can serve as a stabilizing force. Research has shown that nostalgic memories tend to focus on our relationships, which can comfort us during stressful and difficult times.

Krystine Batcho, a professor of psychology at Le Moyne College, has found that “remembering that we experienced unconditional love as children can reassure us in the present—especially during trying times. These memories can fuel the courage to confront our fears, take reasonable risks, and tackle challenges.” These moments initiate personal growth, but there’s always a small chance that nostalgia will distort reality and create a romanticized version of the past.
