I was not one who really lent much relevance to the psychologist's idea that all we have to do is figure out what our parents did to us...and then forgive them and ourselves. I figured, if I was going to be an adult, I was just going to have to take responsibility for myself. So regardless of what happen as a child... it was now my chance to change the things I didn't like and just put the past behind.
Now I didn't go looking for this but I found this fellow on Youtube... and began listening to his weekly diatribes. Eventually I came upon his philosophy on children and child rearing... and the "brain damage" that can occur...and how that brain damage can then circumvent logical thinking and rationalization in everything a person might involve themselves in.
I'm not here to judge. I'm just pointing this information out because I think it's distinctly important in the effort to figure out the meaning of life for each of us... to make life more meaningful... and more importantly, to understand one another.
These are two videos that serve as introductions to his philosophies.
Now...before you go off thinking I'm an atheist or any other label for that matter... or that I feel this man's words are the rock solid unquestionable facts... I will be more than happy to let you know... I don't agree with everything... but what that is... I'll leave out. We all need to have some space to think for ourselves... and I'll be happy to let you have yours.
