| As adults, we think we're so much more sophisticated than infants. But that can be our downfall in building healthy relationships. We can end up with things being overly complicated, over-analyzed, too highly refined until we've taken the juice, the goodies right out of the relationship. Then it becomes dry and boring—exactly the opposite of the fun, nourishing and supportive relationship we want. |
Infants have everything to teach us in that regard. They remind us that all successful relationships are built using the same tasks and methods ithey use. And, infants have to be successful at engaging others - their lives depend on it!
This principle is also just as significant in any other kind of relationship: employer-employee relationships, or in teacher-student relationships.
