In Your Own Words

  • a person's life experiences
  • the way a person was raised
  • the amount that a persons surroundings and experiences have worn off on them


  • The way you were raised, the school you go the friends you have, these things wear off on you.
  • A girl raised like genie had pretty much no nurture.
  • A guy raised in a ninja training camp would have a different nurture than you... unless that is how you were raised. :-)
