It has validity. It's your perception, it's changed.
Life, situations, circumstances,... Everything is perception.
Your perception has new colors.
Your childhood was painted with one palette of colors, your adult life and your experiences have painted it with all new tones and shadows... Im fairly confident it was never as bright as it was through the pure colors of childhood, and not as dark and gloomy as your own experiences and guilts have colored it now.
You know the saying about seeing things through rose colored glasses? People that see things like that by and large dont even know that they are looking at things like that. Same goes the other way I think, Maybe life has put dark tinted, smoked over glasses on you when you weren't watching? I know that I have to reach up and feel my nose pretty often to see if I have those on... I've worn them for awhile without realizing it.
Im just thinking outloud obviously, but I recognize that my experiences have colored everything in the world a darker more sinister color and I hate that I see things like that. Sometimes I don't even realize it. But, Im trying very hard to wash some of these colors out of my eyes.
