things we should learn from young children

Supposedly, people learn more as they grow older, not unlearn. There are a few things almost all of us have unlearned as we progressed from infant to toddler, toddler to child, child to teenager, and so on and so forth. 

This here is a list of things that I think we should all relearn.

  • “I don’t care if I look stupid” 
    Children don’t care if they look stupid. If they want to dance, they dance. If they want to jump around, they jump around. 
    Because they don’t care if they look stupid.
    They don’t care if they look stupid, because they don’t care if their friends look stupid.
    They do whatever they want to. Children World is judgment-free. 
  • Just Jump
    Children do things without thinking about what would happen, like jumping off a bunk-bed with a towel tied around their necks as an attempt of flight.
    I’m not saying we shouldn’t think about the consequences of what we do, because we should. I’m just saying that, in life, we shouldn’t fixate on the ‘what ifs’ so much, and like a child, just jump.  
  • Forgiveness 
    Children don’t hold grudges, and children forgive readily.
    Like them, we should learn to forgive. Note, however, that forgiving someone does not mean trusting said person again. 
  • No Discrimination
    Most children can get along with each other well. Throw a few kids together in a room with a train set, chances are, they’ll end up playing with each other.
    Why can’t we do that? Children get along well with each other, I’ll say it again, because they don’t judge each other. 
    They don’t discrimnate by race, religion, attractiveness or language, unless they have been taught to
    (Okay sometimes by gender, but that’s just a phase :p )  

Okay, that’s all I have for today. (: 

Wow. Three consecutive posts in one day. Record! 

Note: When I said ‘young children’ I mean like, kids under six or seven years old
