Quote of the Day – February 22 2013

“The child intuitively comprehends that although these stories are unreal, they are not untrue …”
― Bruno Bettelheim

 

Spend enough time on the internet and you hear lots of stories. People share their stories and you begin to gain a sense of mythology. Some of us are the heroes of our tales. Some insist they are the victims. Some tell stories that have no heart because they have lost theirs long ago. If you listen carefully enough, you can gain a sense of the truths behind the stories you hear and which the rationales that are woven to cover our truths out of fear. Of course to do this, we have to face our own truths first not an easy task. Perhaps that’s why children can sense the truth so easily . Most of them have yet to weave falsehoods made out of fear and concerns on how they’ll be perceived.
Blessings, G

  1. i recently read that one should not necessarily be critical of a child lying. reason being that it is a sign that they are using their imagination to come up with the story that they are telling you to explain whatever it is they are lying about. i am certain this does not mean to encourage lying but not to be harsh about the imagination aspect. jk
