As a young adult, you probably don’t remember many of the intricate details that occurred in your children. You might recall your princess birthday cake at the age of seven or your new bike for Christmas twenty years ago, but were there any other significant happenings in your childhood? If you consider yourself to be a shy or outgoing individual, this could have been shaped by your childhood experiences. Boosting your own body confidence is something you are constantly striving to do, but could your innate emotions stem from previous events? Consider how your childhood shaped your confidence and you could soon understand more about who you are as a person today.
The Benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle
If you didn’t necessarily have the healthiest childhood, then you might struggle with the same habits to this day. Nowadays it is becoming recognised that the “First 1000 Days” of a child’s life is incredibly important in terms of their health. If you weren’t necessarily exposed to healthy eating habits when you were little, you might struggle with your confidence around food to this day. It is very interesting to know that allergies, obesity and other diseases can be minimised by focusing on health in those first days of a child’s life.
Your Previous Hobbies
If you attended dance, acting, karate, sporting or musical lessons, it is likely that you grew up to be pretty outgoing. These types of childhood hobbies can help little ones to grow in confidence and believe in their own abilities. Think carefully about the type of activities you attended after school and it might tell you a lot about your personality now.
If your parents were quite shy and reserved, it is likely that you lead by their example when you were younger. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t confident and outgoing now, but it might be less natural to you. Innately introverted people often pick up on these traits from people who are close to them, so this might be why you struggle in social situations or feel embarrassed to speak in public.
The School Years
The experiences you have at school, will have had some sort of affect on your personality. If you were in a big group of popular friends, you might find it easier to socialise now. If your friendship group at school was close knit and small, you might prefer to keep your circle small as an adult too.
It is completely natural for your childhood experiences to shape who you are as an adult today. Some people will be able to recognise triggers, whether they are happy or sad. When you have been through a lot in your younger years it can be difficult to understand why these occurrences still affect you. In general, children are very adaptive to their environments and they absorb every little detail like a sponge. Hopefully, some of this information gives you a tiny glimmer into how your unique personality has been formed over the years.
