We Trust Our Beliefs
When we read or hear things, and they make sense to us, we tend to believe them.
We usually don’t question our beliefs. They are such a part of how we view the world; we don’t realize they are there.
For example, the first time you drove to work, you saw the scenery in a completely different light than after years of the same commute. We get used to the same things and don’t stop to question them.
When we were young, we reached conclusions without much thought because we heard it from a trusted authority. Many of our beliefs came from our childhood as we experienced life and as our parents or others in society made statements we accepted as true without much thought.
The good news is since we’ve created our beliefs, we can change them.
We can begin to question our beliefs once we realize they exist.
