Thin Ker Posted over 1 year ago What advice would you give a younger you? I’ll talk to the blossoming young man me. Now you are a man. Now you can play according to your own rules. When you were a child you understood yourself, the others and the world through the beliefs and behaviors of your parents and significant adults. When you were a child, you had the experience of a child, you thought like a child and you understood like a child. When you were a child you made most of your belief system. My dear intelligent young man! Since the childhood when you made your belief system: How many books and articles did you read? How many knowledge did you gain through your senses? How many persons did you interact with, who had different sets of beliefs than yours? How many situations did you go through and how did you experience them according to your beliefs? My dear! Do you accept that an intelligent, experienced, skilled, well-educated man like you lives with sets of beliefs made by a cute little child? My dear! Examine your beliefs and decide according to all what you gathered through your life tell now, which beliefs you want to keep and which you want to change with other more developed ones. My dear! Don’t be afraid to let the dysfunctional beliefs go. Don’t be afraid of losing your identity if you lost some beliefs. You are not your beliefs. You were not born with these beliefs. You already existed before these beliefs and you will still be there after letting them go. You are not your beliefs. You created your beliefs in the past and you may update them now and believe me, even the updated beliefs are not the final versions. In your coming days you’ll know more, experience more and understand more and you will update some beliefs if you saw that a new version would be more functional in the here and now. My dear young man! You make your beliefs and your beliefs make your life.
