Some childhood memories are impossible to forget. Everyone grows up a little (or a lot!) differently and have their own unique stories to tell about what it was like growing up in their shoes.
Sometimes it can feel like your family is the only one with sticky, scratchy, tricky spots, but nobody's family is perfect. Even families that look pretty peachy have their struggles and tough times.
Have you come through some gnarly family situations stronger than before? We would love to hear how you handled it. Did you hide in your room? Scream into your pillow? Lean on your friends? Talk to someone wise? How did you rise above the hurt and keep reaching out to your fam bam with love?
