Do you remember what you said?
Why do we have the need to rebel and create problems constantly? I was thinking about this the whole day. We celebrated Rege’s birthday. In the evening I looked for the part in Beauvoir’s book where she writes about the child-adult relationship. The whole thing seemed so simple. “To become important is the only aspiration of a child. She wants to interfere in the life of the elder ones, she creates mind tales, of which she believes only half of it herself and in which she appears as the protagonist.”
