Here’s how your brain and beliefs can inhibit the fulfillment of you
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”1 Corinthians 13:11
If that were actually possible – that we could just simply put away our child selves when we become adults – then our brains would be constructed entirely differently.
If this were possible, our brains wouldn’t develop and grow from the time we’re born— what we know as a growing body. Let me think of an apt metaphor here. Ok, I think I have one. Brains would be more like Lego building blocks that we could snap together and break apart, easily replacing the parts of our brains that existed as a child… maybe we could even set our entire “child” brain aside with the misinformation that came from our childhood buddies who knew absolutely nothing when they talked about sex, or the painful memories of being grounded (or worse) by our parents, or the nerves and anxiety we’ve carried with us from puberty. Can you imagine?
