If your 12 year old self could see you right now would they be proud of what you've grown up to be? Would they be disappointed? Or would they not care because they were just too cool?

Interesting question (for once (not just from you, personally, but from the pit))

I'm quite different compared to how I was 12 years ago, but then I guess everyone changes a lot as they grow. I think my kid self would be happy to see me living on my own (what kid doesn't want to) but he would not be satisfied with saving money purely for paying bills (and neither is current me )

Well I had sex a few times and have a gaming PC so 12 year old me would think I was pretty cool

My twelve-year-old self would be dissapointed that I don't own tons of decent musical instruments and equipment, and he would be bummed that I don't skate anymore.

EDIT: My twelve-year-old self is pretty much the same as my twenty-five-year-old self.

I actually had this conversation with a really interesting person a couple days ago. I think my 12 year old self would be disappointed. I gave up on my dreams and just let life take me where it would. I mean, I get on well enough I suppose but it isn't what I wanted back then. And it certainly isn't what I want now.

I guess part of growing up is learning to compromise and make sacrifices. Something the 12 year old me had no concept of.

I think this.

My 12 year old self probably would be upset that I've "missed" so many things though, and been an unwilling third-party witness to some of the most important events in my life.

But you can't make it perfect, and 12 year old me had a lot of aspirations, and I can still make most of those aspirations, so
My God, it's full of stars!

yeah idk I barely remember being 12
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

I'm not sure. I think 12 year old me would be kind of turned on by me now if anything.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

My 12 year old self was a nerdy loser with no friends.


My current self is a nerdy loser with no friends as well actually. I don't know if I would say disappointment. Just that everything has gone just like expected.

My 12 year old self didn't know what he wanted to be when he grew up. We have that in common.


I'm sure that 12 year old you would be happy you kept that Zakk Wylde guitar.

Well... 12 year old would probably have expected adult me to be the most awesome person ever. While that may be a bit ambitious, I see no problems with such an expectation. That being said, I constantly reconsider what I consider adulthood to be.

And by that I mean that my threshold for adulthood is dynamic.

By which I mean that adulthood is postponed by a certain period of time at a set interval, namely by a year, every year.


I'm not an adult yet, is what I'm saying

I could probably take on three...maybe four 12 year old versions of myself in a fight.

Why tho

My 12 year old self would be disappointed in my progress at guitar, my love life, my sexuality, and my recent acquisition of a Nicki Minaj album.

But yeah he was a prick and I'd beat the shit out of him.

I voted "No, I'm a loser" before I could think things through.
I should've voted "My 12 year old self was a cunt, who cares what they think!", cus I was a fucking idiot, who wouldn't stand up against bullies, because of "But if I say bad word to them or hit them then teacher will be angry and tell my parents how I'm a bad kid."

Fuck my 12 year old self if hes gonna judge me. Fucking loser pussy.
#31
so that's like 7th grade?
he'd be a tad confused about the music i listen to but smugly proud that i do still listen to a lot of what he did.
he'd disappointed at the crushes that didn't work out and his one-track-crush-mind won't appreciate any new interests that did work out
he'd be confused at how i don't watch tv anymore
he wouldn't react to the fact that i'm at a big university and stuff cause of that class privilege.
stuff like that

My 12-year old self was a wee bastard. But if he knew what 34 year old me was like, he'd probably have decided to kill himself at 20, because it's all downhill since then.
#37
well, as thirteen, i have progressed my guitar skills a lot. so i think im in the clear from eight months ago
#38
my 12 year self was awful so I wouldn't gaf what he thinks however I am definitely a loser by both my 12 year old standards and current standards lol

so far my life actually peaked at 15 (not much of a peak lol) and it's all been downhill since.

I don't remember much of myself before turning 14, much less my thoughts.
Mom blames it on the medication I was on.

I remember getting picked on by this one kid for wearing briefs and not boxers, thoough. He called them tidy-wideys.
