Ever had someone post something on social media and it sounds so ridiculous that you immediately dismiss it? Or perhaps you’re like me and you look up relevant research and such to find the facts. Either way, the truth is out there. Yes some things are just opinion but what if there is just a right and wrong? What if there is just fact and fiction?
I guess I think about this the most when my beliefs are challenged. I admit that sometimes when I am challenged I dig in my heels, get a little frustrated and stand my ground. But about half the time I do look at myself in the mirror and question where I stand. Am I wrong?
I don’t do this because I am insecure but rather because I want to make certain I don’t just follow the crowd of lemmings. I am always seeking to grow and change. I want to be the best me I can be, and that includes my belief systems.
My dad always told me not to believe anything or anyone at first but rather research, study and find the truth because the truth is out there.
No, my truth may not align with yours. That is when we must both step back and do some self reflection. We must do some self study and actually listen to the other person and consider their POV. Are they the one with the accurate belief system?
I hope you find the truth in all areas of your life. Be blessed.
