You are entitled to believe whatever you want to believe…as others can believe whatever they want also. You can shout them from the rooftops, and so can they.
Your beliefs form between the ages of 0-7. Your primary caregivers mainly shape them. Your ideas about society, money, religion are all developed at this young age.
Since your beliefs form at a very young age is why they are hard to change. They can be changed, but it isn’t easy. It sure isn’t going to happen overnight. I know for sure it’s not going to happen instantly after someone trying to impose their beliefs on you.
What is the reason you want everyone to believe what you do? Is it for your self-worth? Or do you not like being told you are wrong? Think about it.
To think you can change someone else’s thoughts and beliefs is not going to happen. Sorry, it’s not. Being aware of this will save yourself a lot of mental anguish. A person’s belief makes up who they are. That is why they are strong, as you can see out on any social media platform, especially during an election or a crisis.
When you want others to believe what you do, it’s never about the person and their beliefs. It’s always about you. You can’t control other people and what they think, say, or do. The only person you can control is YOU.
No beliefs are right or wrong. It’s either you agree or don’t agree. If you feel the need to impose your view on others; Stop, take a breath. Ask yourself is this worth the fight, knowing you are not going to win. Be kind. Be respectful. Acknowledge that we agree to disagree. Then I believe everyone will live happily ever after. Believe It or Not.
