Grow to be a Child
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
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.
“To enter the kingdom of heaven, one must become like a child again”
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.
Finding more and more that this concept is key to true happiness.
@Sasho well put sir haha.
I am youth! I am joy! I am freedom!
