    Two of my sisters are visiting me at the moment, and the one came just a few hours ago. She's just been a few weeks with my parents, and has with her a dvd of old stuff my dad had filmed of us almost 19 years ago.
    Here's the weird thing...

    So the clips are all of us as kids, like I said, 19 years ago. We like watching these clips and laughing at all the dumb things we did and said, and it's usually a really good time. I always cringe when i see myself, even though I'm just a kid, I still get embarrassed by some of the things I did. But it's just funny, I guess. So in one part, one of my younger sisters is having a birthday party, and there are tons of kids there. It's a noisy party with balloons, tons of food, parents running around helping the kids, etc. Suddenly, the tape cuts to me dressed as a clown, getting ready in a bedroom upstairs. I mean full clown costume with makeup and everything, and at this point I'm thinking "wtf is this". Then my sister who had the dvd with her goes "oh this part's really funny, you were going to do something but then you "shied out!""

    This struck me in a really weird way. Growing up, I had terrible social anxiety, and I've suffered a lot from it (without going into details). I think it's kept me from realizing my potential, and made me the mess I am today.

    Anyways, I start genuinely laughing and go "hahaha omg I can't watch this" before I dart into my room. Even though I'm still laughing a bit, I all of a sudden feel crushingly sadness, like I'm about to burst into tears. I was a kid in the clip, 5-6 years old, dressed up as a clown to be entertaining. But my shyness got in the way. Maybe it doesn't sound like anything, but it was really actually painful for me to see, and even to be reminded of. Thinking about it now, I feel terrible :( It pretty much sums up my entire life, and it hurt seeing such an early sign of it.

    I need a hug :(

    I'm going to tell my mom about it tomorrow. Maybe she can shed some light on what happened to me growing up, and why I'm so fucked up today.

    My guess is you're repressing a memory of your father diddling you while wearing the costume. I'm sure that creep filmed it as well.
