    Default Deep Inside

    Dear Teachers,

    A. People often say “grow up and act your age”. In many cases, it was either shamed or punished out of you, or it remains buried deep inside.
    - What does “it was either shamed or punished out fo you” mean in this sentence?

    B. Hey man! You’re older than me, so I guess you have much experiences in love / about love , right?
    - Is this natural?

    Thanks a million

    Default Re: Deep Inside

    It means that shame and punishment were used to force you to change your behaviour.
    2 No- much experiences- should be singular- a lot of experience, though I'd say 'you know a lot about love'
