I can’t remember a particular incident right now, but I’m sure it’s happened numerous times.
It probably did.
The religion I was raised in in its entirety. When I was young, you couldn’t tell me it wasn’t true because it never occurred to me to think any other way. But now, I see it as a system of control.
In what religion have you been raised?
Was raised a Jehovah’s Witness but haven’t been active for over ten years
How come you haven’t been active? What is your view about this religion or about religion in general?
When I was a kid I believed that my parents knew everything. If they said something was true, then it was true. I also used to believe teachers were very prim and proper and I remember driving by one and saw her smoking and I was like, “Teacher’s aren’t supposed to do that!” I had this idea of what they were, but obviously it didn’t match the truth because they are just people after all. Same with church but the opposite. Those people are great SMH, NO, no, they aren’t, or at least not the ones I knew.
I also believed my parents new everything. Actually, that’s what children think. When I realized this is wrong, I’ve started to search the answers by myself and I become very skeptical about everything.
I guess most kids think their parents are infallible but when they are mean and abusive it really messes up a person’s head. Or at least it did for me.
“trust the system”
My country’s school system contributed to my screwed up state i’m in atm
As Brenda says above, I am sure there were many, but one tgat stands out was a woman’s place is in the home. Yes, I’m that old! . Fortunately, after. years of hearing this, I realised it was wrong.
And thank you for following my blog – Books&morebooks2017.wordpress.c om
My pleasure! Thank you for taking your time to share your thoughts! How old were you when you realized it was a wrong?
That all people who are not affected by mental do not understand, some do.
Yes, some do. I’m sure that in time more and more people will understand.
I used to think being too realistic would stop you from achieving big things. Now, I think that being realistic is key to planning.
And planning is the key for achieving big things.
where do I start lol
Start with the most impactful one.
Realising I need to alter myself more than I realised , it is a bit more than I was originally preparing for but it can be done
It can be done. I have faith in your powers!
Thank you 🙏
Oftentimes because I am a caring person, I feel other people care as well. It saddens me to find out how short people’s attention spans are relative to caring
I can find that as well. Most people are too self centered.
I thought Sting sang “White Wedding.” Courtesy of my old man. Took me years to learn the truth.
I find that sometimes as well. Sometimes I’m stuck with the wrong version so much that I don’t want to accept the real one :))
The first time I found that my boss, who I looked up to, was actually full of shit
That must be very disappointing….
This is a good question… I do my best to maintain positive perceptions… In the past, I didn’t always do this…
How did you managed to shift your perspective?
It has been a mix of schooling, faith, and also the realization that we tend to misread others often, and this causes us to really miss out on getting to know great people/friends.
I totally agree. That’s why I think we shouldn’t stop at the first thought that comes through our mind.
So very true! Perceptions are not always reality.
I was sheltered growing up so believe that everyone is nice….yea at 25 I see now.
People are… people.
Yea too bad they are parents lol
