Morphing beliefs.

The path of changing a viewpoint is sometimes an uphill climb. Deeply seated beliefs from childhood can get lodged and become part of who we are, and part of our truth, without us recognizing that it was a choice. A choice made with different information. A choice made that may no longer serve us, and indeed harm us.

I carry shame about some of my black and white ways of thinking as a passionate teen and young adult. Yet, that exploration is part of the process to learn, develop beliefs, and then change course as we learn new information.

What if we stepped proudly into a new way of thinking as we learn better information? A new understanding is a sign of maturity not weakness.
