Susan Sherbert talks about how as adults, we are afraid to have fun and play because we choose to see reality as full of negative unknown possibilities. We also have negative patterns of self-judgement as well as judging others, whereas kids are able to play due to lack of this self-judgement and fear of it. As adults we use these negative thought patterns to try and protect ourselves against the horror of being let down, which actually just makes us miserable. We also keep our negative patterns because we not only fear change, but are also really uncomfortable with it. But if we are able to let down our guard of negativity and allow ourselves to sit in the discomfort of change, we will be able to grow and enjoy life.
