Most people are still operating from a childhood mindset these days.
This isn’t about social media or anything.
This was something Jung noticed back in the day.
That many “adult” problems stem from thinking like children.
How so, specifically?
Way back in the day, before agriculture, getting food was difficult.
If you were a tribe of 50 people, that would mean you would need to get 100,000 calories per day.
One buffalo would feed the tribe for ten days.
So if you could always see a herd of buffalo you’d be OK.
Or if you happened to live next to the ocean, and could repeatedly catch fish every day, that was also OK.
But that wasn’t guaranteed.
And of those 50 people, maybe 10-20 of them were in decent “food acquisition” state.
Both in mind and in body.
In body is easy.
Physically fit, strong, capable, intelligent, and with enough endurance.
But what about “in mind?”
If you were an adult, you felt adult responsibility.
You KNEW that if you didn’t get it done, your people would starve.
Very few people today have this same level of adult responsibility.
Most people operate from the childhood model.
What is the childhood model?
That if you want something, it’s somebody else’s responsibility to give it to you.
Think of how a baby up to a 5 year old (and beyond) gets things.
They say “I want” over and over until somebody gives it to them.
Most people use this same strategy today.
Most adults today legitimately believe that all they need to do is say “I want” and the thing they want will just suddenly appear.
Even in adult relationships.
The guy says to the girl:
“I want you to be happy.”
As if only expressing a desire is going to somehow MAKE her happy.
“Wow, baby! I was depressed before, but since you say you want me to be happy, I’ll just switch on my magic happy switch so YOU can get what YOU want!!!”
Obviously, this strategy never works.
Some people even get ANGRY when their expressed desires don’t magically come true.
A guy tells his girl he wants her to be happy.
But somehow, this doesn’t magically transform her into happy lovey-dovey girlfriend.
So the dude gets angry.
As if that’s ALL HE HAS TO DO to have a healthy relationship.
Just say OUT LOUD what he wants.
The angry part is what little kids do.
They say what they want, they don’t get it, and then throw a hissy fit.
But as an adult, you know better.
You know it’s useless to simply say what you want.
To wait around for the magic “want fairy” to deliver the goods.
You know that as a adult it’s your job to CREATE what you want.
By interacting with others.
And lucky for you, being one of the very few adults today, this is very, very easy.
