Some numbers are in both categories because our love or hate sometimes is dependent upon the particular number!
Numbers in cultures and religions
In a few cultures our age number is assigned if we finish that year plus other cultures that age number emerges at the beginning of the entire year - beginning on day 1 of life. So you age number will differ based on your culture!
In Hebrew, all letters have a numerical equivalent and each word's number could be the total of these individual numbers - therefore words have numerical meaning along with the literal meaning. As well as the Hebrew bible [Torah or Old Testament] carries a book called Numbers.
Particular numbers have significance according to your beliefs. Some of these are 3, 7, and 666.
Children love numbers
counting games
boardgames
birthday candles
the amount of cookies or presents
how old they are
just endless reciting of numbers or counting
Teens and Adults develop the love-hate relationship with numbers
When we so love numbers when we're young - what goes on that we begin to dislike them?
Let's begin with parents who wish to discuss the terrible 2's. Will be the 2's so "terrible" or am i pre-programmed to consider so? And should we pass this to our little ones in order that they start to learn that some numbers are not-so-good???
We contain the amorphous "someone" who lets us know that arithmetic is difficult. I don't know who started this myth but it is a myth. Worse - we tell children that arithmetic is more difficult for girls compared to boys! So those numbers begin to type in the hate category.
We like to turning 13! We are teenagers! And very quickly we can drive!
We wish to get high gpa's in class and also on the tests that "matter." When the numbers are certainly not might know about were hoping or expecting we get sad and even depressed. Yet not many of us question whether those test numbers mean anything in real life outside school. We assign love/hate in their mind.
As well as in many countries we love reaching the legal day of driving, drinking and voting or marrying. These seem to be good numbers so we love them.
Unless, needless to say, we hate them!
Consider the numbers in your lifetime and instead of creating a love/hate relationship with these, imagine what they mean to you and why...and after that discover how to love them all! These are your numbers plus they are you!
