Most of us have simply accepted what has been given. It’s just the plain ugly truth!
Most of our beliefs, our values, and our self-esteem… are not even our own.
Unfortunately, most of what we are taught, shown, or brainwashed into our psyche… are given to us without our knowledge.
Is your political preference really yours, or was it passed down by your parents?
Are your personal interest really yours, or was it influenced by early friendships?
Are your attitudes towards diverse cultures truly your own, or was it taught by your environment?
We all have been given values and beliefs that would make-up who we are, but the question is…
DO WE ACCEPT ALL OF THEM?
Do we dismiss the lessons that were given to us that are detrimental to our growth?
Do we except the factors that were given to us that are beneficial to our growth?
Do we mimic the circumstances that make us a possible menace to society?
Do we adopt the surroundings that transform us into a credit to our families?
But the most critical question is…
DO WE HAVE THE DISCERNMENT WITH WHAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US,
TO KNOW WHAT TO ACCEPT… AND WHAT TO DECLINE?
