Definition:- Perseveration is the uncontrollable repetition of a particular response, such as a word, phrase, or gesture, despite the absence or cessation of a stimulus, usually caused by brain injury or other organic disorder.
This is another variation on "Perseveration" and how it can pan out in "adults," maybe you might recognise a little bit of yourself, perhaps? A longish piece, but very worthwhile for a little personal insight.
To those who have grown weary of seeing the same title “England is evil,’ every day, I have a suggestion? Take the first letter that matches the name of your own country, such as M for Mexico and couple it with another word such as Malevolent. There after, chant in threes ‘Mexico is malevolent.’ It would help if your accent differed significantly, and identifiably from your country of choice. Ideally this should be repeated during every idle moment as well as any number of minutes when you are concentrating on something, or frustrated, or distracted. The phase can also be used both publicly and privately. Continue in this fashion for the next 22 days. Ensure that you are in Mexico when you say it. Ensure that you find a good translator so that everyone is sure to understand you. Ensure that the pitch, timbre and volume of the words is loud enough, even if their hearing aid is turned off. For variety, it can also be sung to any number of different tunes on random shuffle. You do not have to be on holiday or in unfamiliar territory to complete this experiment, but it helps. Once you have completed each and every one of these steps, then you shall be better placed to point a finger.
I would be willing to lay a wager, that even if you changed Malevolent to Marvelous, nevertheless it would still numb your brain cells.
Would that all the world’s woes were so tiny.
Non-verbal no longer, I am the luckiest mummy around.
Go on, indulge me, especially if you're on one of those dratted 'readers!'
Or maybe you might have an opinion about my future career prospects if we return to England? I'm thinking.........exclusive importer and distributer of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers, or is that too self serving?
It's nice to go away, but it's lovely to be "home."
