    >>>>GROW UP!!!<<<<

    Discussion started by mr_president - Jul 28, 2003

    reading this book called: GROW UP! how taking responsibility can make you a happy adult.

    thought some of you people in your teens would be interested in this page i read so far, haha, and the ending of the first chapter... i wish someone would have told me about it...

    here goes:

    right before this it was talking about people who blame their mistakes or misfortunes on others, or other things, making excuses and running from responsibility etc...:

    "Theyu have defined themselves as victims of imperfect love or imperfect luck somewhere along the road to adulthood, and so they have not yet become grown ups-- and, the are quick to assure you, it is not their fault.

    Some of them are striving to learn how to be grown ups even though they have never really known one. they know they are missing something, and they want to learn it. Not having been raised by healthy, functioning adults, all they can do is guess at what is normal.

    Some of them are adult children, people who have had some pain or disappointment in their lives and are now waiting for someone else to come along to kiss it and make it better. Adult children give nothing back since they believe they weren't given enough in the first place. They owe no loyalty to others but they expect others to take care of them and are angry when they don't.

    Some of them are stuck in perpetual adolescence, seeing themselves as powerless in a world filled with powerful adults, lacking the self confidence to strive for the rewards their bloated self esteem craves, seeing everyone else less as fellow human beings than as barriers to the great nipple of life they want to suck. And even as they exhaust us with their interminable self absorbtion, they are furious when anyone expects them to follow the same rules as everyone else.

    But ofcourse i get to see people at their best; people who are learning to deal with imperfect mates, forebears, and offspring; people who are coping with the daunting realities of life, finding strength, developing wisdom, and teaching me the secrets of both survival and ahppiness as the share with me the tragedies and comedies of their crisis-filled lives."

    ....

    "I have found the secret to happiness in adulthood. It is responsibility --responsibility for yourself, your life, your choices, your world, and especially your loved ones."

    ...the great nipple of life..

    never heard it put quite like that. people that qualify the statement above, in my experience, also suffer from the poor me complex. sometimes it's enough to suck the life right out of you.

    add coccaine to this statement, and you have a perfect description of my ex-roommate.
