Instructions and Help about Will Form 8815 Matures

We know well enough that we are equipped with an innate drive for physical growth that the human animal is geared to keep developing towards its outward mature form adding muscle and bone and fatty tissue in a spontaneous process of development that begins in our earliest days in the womb and ends around our 16th year what is less obvious is that we are marked by an equally innate equally powerful although here lifelong drive towards emotional growth without anything mystical being meant by this unless we are impeded by internal or external obstacles we are set on an inner lockable path towards emotional development an obvious conceptual difference between the two drives is that we can know easily enough what it means to be fully grown physically but it's rather harder to pin down what equivalent emotional maturity might look like we can hazard a two-fold answer our emotional drive is made up of two strands the first is a will towards ever greater and deeper connection the second comprises a will towards ever greater and deeper self-expression to consider connection first we are marked by an intense wish to move away from loneliness shame and isolation and to find opportunities for understanding sincerity and communion we long to share with friends lovers and new acquaintances an authentic picture of what it means to be us and at the same time to enter deeply into their feelings and experiences what we call love is merely a subsection of the drive to connect which extends across a range of activities and types of relationship stretching to encompass the body and our desire for physical intimacy touch and sexual play we can count ourselves as emotionally healthy in large measure according to what degree of connection we have in our lives by the drive to self-expression we mean the desire to fathom bring into focus and externalize our ideas and creative and intellectual capacities a drive that manifests itself particularly around our work and our aesthetic activities we seek to gain an ever greater understanding of the contents of our minds especially of our values our pleasures and our way of seeing the world and to be able to give these a kind of expression that makes them public comprehensible and beneficial to others we will feel that we've had a rich life whenever we've been able to give a voice in shape to some of the many perceptions that cause through us and in some way however modestly left a fruitful imprint on the world these two aspects of the drive for emotional growth help us to get a handle on some of our most acute moments of unhappiness it's because of the primordial importance of the drive to connect that it hurts so much when a friendship is broken off when an established relationship starts to lack physical contact or when we can't find anyone we see eye to eye with in a new city and it's because of how powerful the drive to self-expression is that we suffer so much when our studies fail to engage our minds when a job ceases to reflect our interests or when on a Sunday evening we feel in a confused way that our talents are going to waste just as the same drive can explain the intensity of the envy we'll feel when we hear of a friend's success in an area that we aspire to calling this aspect of human nature a drive and ik waiting it with that towards physical maturity emphasizes it's essentially non-negotiable nature and hence its power over us it is as misguided painful and nonsensical to try to stop someone growing emotionally as it is to bind their feet the drive takes precedence over all manner of more convenient options for longing for respectability or money or stability it won't leave us alone until it's been heard it might make us leave a marriage that would from many perspectives have been so much easier to remain in or to throw in a job that was hugely convenient financially in order to take up another that more properly answers the call of our deep selves if the drive to emotional growth continues to be unattended and perhaps even unknown to us it can short-circuit our whole lives in a bid to be heard fed up with waiting it may simply throw us into a paralyzing depression or lock us into a state of overwhelming anxiety by breaking us in these ways the frustrated drive is trying to be interpreted and accommodated what it lacks an eloquence and focus it makes up for in persistence and strength a breakdown is a roundabout attempt to create opportunities for a breakthrough that is a new stage of emotional growth by understanding more clearly how basic and important the drive to emotional growth can be we may come to better recognize the symptoms of its frustrations and the logic of our longings and at points when we upset the otherwise steady course of our lives in its name we can be ready to explain to ourselves and those who care for us what might be behind our puzzling behavior we haven't forever lost our minds we recognize the role of respectability and status we would love to be less difficult and demanding it's just that we have to honor another even more vital side to our nature we are under an inner imperative to continue on our path towards emotional growth to learn more about self-knowledge follow the link on your screen now to help you better understand yourself if you enjoyed our film please
