A study compared the pursuit of happiness versus the pursuit of meaning in life.  Some people’s pursuit of meaning, destroys their happiness.  Talk about babies and raising them a certain way.

    I loved Jayar’s thoughts about not leaving a baby to cry alone for long periods. I worked with kids for 25 years and those experiences definitely create a lot of pain in their lives for many years afterward, but they usually don’t understand what’s happening because they had no words to describe it at the time. Maybe I sound silly to you guys, but I’ve seen this in hundreds of situations. What I love about Jayar is his sanity and his compassion.

      You know what, I was thinking about that recently. If I were to put myself in the mindset of an infant, actually, even if I were to put myself in the mindset of the adult I am now and I just wasn’t able to communicate my thoughts to a person who was putting me in a crib I couldn’t get out of even though I may or may not be tired and then closed the door and left me alone unable to do anything for myself, I would be pretty upset, as well!

      So you mean happiness is an end in itself, right? Not so sure that isn’t a circular argument. But I guess everyone needs to answer that their own way.

    Kids= Financial burdens. Do not have kids until your ready.
    And i will say if your not ready to devote your life to your kids then don’t have them, because they are your life.
