If we look at very young babies they are not anxious, yet they have come into a new world and seemingly have no skills or abilities. Most babies are very laid back and surrendered to what life presents, after all they have no choice. So when and why does this change?
Babies are beautiful in their essence, being true to themselves. What if continual pressures from the outside, parents, health visitors, etcetera puts an on-going pressure for the baby to be more, to smile, to sit up and so on. These pressures never end, may be unspoken, some may be hidden; but if the baby feels the only way it can have attention, or be recognised for the amazing being it already is, is to leave itself and start doing ‘x’, ‘y’, or ‘z’ to get this love, could that be the start of us losing our true selves?
