A phrase that turns you back into a child. “Well ever since I was little”, “My mom always told me”, “I grew up like that”. Just because it worked when you were six years old, do you think it will work when you’re twenty one? Just because you’ve been doing it when you were a little kid does not mean it’s going to work now when the entire world has changed, you have changed, your mom has changed, everything has changed. We constantly bring ourselves back to childhood because there are so many unsolved problems from there. But also, we bring ourselves back there because that was a source of comfort. But you are so so so grown up. So stop referencing six year old self. Grow up and look at it for what it is now.
