Actually, that is factually incorrect.

There have been thousands of studies done on both, and they have shown that things such as alcoholism and being a sex addict can be imprinted on our DNA. They are diseases. This means that your genetic make-up can “MAKE” a person be those things.
Childhood trauma also can cause these things because the mind is not fully developed until most are 25-28 years, so incidences of trauma quite often have an impact far past the developmental stage they were incurred in and have life long implications.

Keep trying to be well OP

Maybe the new age for getting a driver's license, drinking, buying cigarettes, watching pornography, voting, being able to have sex, and joining the military should be 29.

I mean if people's minds are not fully developed until 25-28, should they be burdened with these adult responsibilities?

Fair questions - but the evidence is irrefutable - parts of our brain, including those which are relevant to our social behaviour, are not fully developed until mid/late twenties.

Just checking to see how you are doing?

You don’t need to prove she is sleeping with another guy to anyone but yourself. But even if she Isn’t, e We by would you want to stay with someone that has treated you this way????

Don’t you deserve better?????

Hope you are well.

Good luck, and stay strong!

And to think my grandfather flew a plane over Germany in WWII at 22 years old!!!
I pushed a wheelchair around the unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in Hyde Park 8 years ago. It contained my partner's uncle - 28 trips in a Halifax, transferred to training, went back to action, shot down on 5th trip of second tour, survived 6 months in Holland and Belgium, got back to UK, volunteered to bomb-aim/navigate Mosquitos, was Pathfinder training when took part in the Kiel raid on night-fighter landing disruption duty. Possibly the last RAF crew member to drop a bomb on Nazi Germany - certainly one of the last four.

He was 21 when he first flew over Germany.

All of which has nothing to do with the fact that parts of the brain don't fully mature until mid-late twenties.

Probably helps explain why they could handle the trauma - the late developing areas include the awareness, and assessment of threats to one's safety - their ability to fear death was immature.

Doesn't mean they weren't brave, they were heroes - but they were evolutionarily disposed to take/downplay risks more than they would have done ten years later.

Yeah ... but he wasn't wearing skinny jeans, a man-bun, horn rimmed glasses and crying about needing a safe space.

So, there's that....

OP, any updates?

Then maybe there should be a change in the Declaration of Independence so that everything gets covered? Citing medical evidence obviously....and the NRA are not qualified to “control” the testing results.

It is outdated and insignificant towards modern society.

Modern society and medicine and science has shown that the right to arm may have been applicable in the 1700’s, but not now.

It is evolution. And there are a lot of things that need to be modernized.

My understanding is that the right to bear arms is so that the citizens can form a militia to defend society against kings/dictators/tyrants etc.. Don't recall it mentioning anything to do with feelings of personal inadequacy.
