It's easy to show a child sympathy, cuddle them and offer them reassurance, even to minor injuries - usually, the child, eager to pity themselves too, and demanding due attention for their pain - imagined or real.
And yet, when we really need these, from major injuries, as adults, we're much quicker to offer scorn, insults and rejection - both to self and others.
Why is that?
However, other times, we, condescendingly, call a child 'attention seeking' and we dread ever coming across as 'attention seeking' as adults.
What would happen, both to the child and to yourself, if you realised that all 'attention seeking' behaviours were simply 'connection craving' instead?
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
