#41: No Tantrum Needed As You Add Bad Days
Why do infants throw more effective tantrums than adults? Is it because they are less inhibited? Because they have only their lungs to make an impact? Because they don’t know better?
None of the above!
It is because at that age, any bad day or bad event is, percentage wise, based on their total number of days on this planet, a huge experience. By the time you get to my age, a bad day is just that–a bad day. And likely to be canceled out by a good day.
After so many, many days, some good, some bad, and many in-between days, you realize that bad comes and goes. And that bad is relative. (My definition of bad keeps changing.)
If you are still throwing tantrums as an aging adult, then either you are still a baby, or you need more diverse experiences.
Either way, go live a little.
Welcome to my side of the nonsense divide.
