    This is actually very common, though. They fall, and stop trying until they've grown and are better able to support their weight.

    To be fair babies aren’t capable of that level of rational thinking, and if they see nearly everyone around them doing it they know it’s possible unlike with a lot of things people try to do with their lives I totally agree with the sentiment, it’s just far from a perfect metaphor

    That's usually because a 1 year old child rarely has the cognition to make life altering decisions.

    Relearning to do everything. Talk, write, walk, crawl, pick up objects and release them and hug my children. I was a stroke victim way, way, way back in December 2008 due to a car accident. Now, I’m a Stroke Warrior.

    Yes they fucking do.... My mother ran a day care at our house when I was growing up. There was one kid who just didn't want to walk. He didn't start walking until he was almost 4. Kids get all sorts of weird ideas.

    How many people tell a child, "maybe you're not cut out for walking" or "it's okay if you give up"? Nah, they're supportive af. People need to be more supportive of each other.

    First of all babies don't think abstract thoughts like that. Second of all, that is a shit analogy if it in any way tries to insinuate that you should keep trying something that you can't do at all after 50 times, UNLESS it's something that literally every other healthy human being is capable of doing. "When a fly is flying into the window 9000 times and doesn't go through, they never think to themselves "maybe this isn't for me"" but it was a shit fucking plan anyway huh?

    Any tips on how to apply this as an adult? Grew up in the exact opposite way, don't fail because if you fail I'll have to fix it for you, gee thanks Dad. I'm a 4 time college drop out and I am so scared of trying again. All I know is that trying something new usually ends up with me an emotional wreck because I can't do anything right.

    PrinceHumperTinkTink

    Interesting example. I'm sure that child is also constantly surrounded by people who are supporting/encouraging them along the way and making sure they don't get hurt too badly when they fall. This is rarely the case (sometimes even the opposite) for our life goals.

    Context is important. Falling 50 times learning to walk? Not a big deal. Failing to start your own business 50 times? Might be time to try a new path. Fail the exact same exam 50 times? Maybe cut your losses.
