There are certain stories your parents will tell you about yourself over and over, until they're practically legend.

By the logic of this Twitter viral thread, that means I am an extremely independent person. Twitter user @Christinaemoss asked for everyone to share childhood anecdotes that they felt showed a lot about who they are. It's the perfect mix of sharing family stories and self-analysis.

She wrote, "What's a childhood anecdote that says a lot about you? Mine is that when I was 8, my friends and I went door to door selling homemade keychains so we could buy Bibles for our bullies. My reasoning at the time was that if they read the Bible they would stop bullying me. I have since come to realize that in the hands of a bully the Bible can be as effective a weapon as any, but hey, my heart was in the right place."
