Rethinking Beliefs

[ #2592 ]

I've been talking with a few people, one in particular, over the past few weeks, and I've come to realize some really interesting things about myself.

The first of which is, that deep-down, despite my lifetime of telling others I don't want to control their lives, I tend to assert my beliefs on others.

The second of these is that many of the core beliefs I've held on to throughout my life, because they are what I was brought up believing to be unerringly true, might not be. This involves some self-realization, and some humbling acceptances.

I realize that I wish the world was a better place. I also realize that the realm in which I can effect this is wholly personal.

I also realize that I could be entirely wrong, and that's incredibly liberating.
