When I recall my childhood memories, there are many stories. Childhood is special for everyone. My childhood memories have shaped me into the person I am today. There are many different childhood memories that I can remember that really made an impact on how my personality is today. Some of memories make me happy, but others make me grow up. The memories that made my growing happened when I was about 6 years old and my mom used to take me swimming as she sat nearby and I swam in the evenings.
One day for some reason I can’t recall she wasn’t there, nor were there any guards. I was swimming in the shallow, and God knows why, I moved over to the deep. You can imagine I was a little kid . Suddenly I lost grip and began to drown. But I didn’t resist. I just kept sinking till I had reached the bottom and after 10 seconds I felt myself suffocating.
But I still remained perfectly still This 18 years old girl came out of nowhere, I have no idea how she figured out (I never knew her), she pulled me up and asked me if I was okay.
I was choking and later I began bleeding from the nose, another Lady took me to the toilet to wash my nose. And this unidentified girl left, never to be seen again. It’s hard to explain, but trust me I would have died that day. And no one would have noticed. She left, and I could never thank her. I was too young to even comprehend the severity of the casualty I was leading myself into. I still remember her, and it’s like this memory is a part of me.
I have been grateful to people ever since and made my loved ones realize how much they mean to me from time to time. There’s nothing more tragic than losing someone you never got to thank or tell how much you value them. Until now i already grow up but i still remember about this childhood experience, and this memories keep remind me don’t let death and separation to guilt and regrets, just make the best use of time you have. I’ll cherish everything the childhood experience taught me and shaped me who I am now.
