The Internet and social media really does bring us together. How? Well, as one person once put it: “it turns out we were all living the same childhood in different houses.” It is extremely pleasant to find out that someone living thousands of miles away from you, had similar experiences in their childhood. For instance, the majority of us know the frightening feeling of when mom asked you to take out that chicken from the freezer and you didn’t. Or when your parents would walk into your room only to find all the dirty cups, plates and forks laying around. Or when your dad used to fall asleep on the couch with his arms crossed on his chest, but would suddenly wake up when you wanted to change the channel on TV. But this writer recently brought up something new and made us remember the traumas we even forgot we had.

H/t Buzzfeed.

Recently, this guy asked Twitter to share traumatic stories from people’s childhoods
