Grow to be a Child

3 years, 4 months ago

Read this article on Psychology Today: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/sapient-nature/201107/grow-be-child

When I was younger, with much inspiration from Peter Pan, I decided I never wanted to grow up. I still don’t. Nice to know others feel the same :)

Great article.
I can say that I’ve matured enough to loose the bad aspects, but I’ve found out that I too lost most of my spontaneity, (I noticed this in the way I move, speak and so on) and am actively trying to “loose the chains”, the “what will other people think?” that has been deeply ingrained on my subconscious. Stop rationalizing so much about things that really don’t matter. It’s hard work but I’ve seen improvements.

Interesting read. The comparison between that which is childlike and that which is childish was insightful. We lose pieces of our youth throughout the time we’re alive unless we become consciously aware of how we are thinking—whether or not we are enjoying ourselves during our daily duties and how we choose to cherish the moments that we do enjoy—our multiple processing deludes the way we go about living life.
I’ve thought about what makes someone young, and this really helped clarify the true meaning—imagination, passion, and love.

So the lesson here for being more childlike is to put more importance on the enjoyment of whatever your doing than of it’s rewards?

everything i used to be interested in as a child i just cant get away from. i love myself as a child. children are so much better than adults. dont become an adult. thats just making yourself boring to fit someone else’s mould. all adults wanna be children but theyre too scared their friends will think theyre crazy. my 2 cents

Adults are just dead children

Glad this has resurfaced :)

I love babysitting because it gives me an excuse to be childlike again. Tonight, for example, I played with play-doh for the first time in years with a 5 year old. It was as great as I remember.
