When I use words like Truth and Belief they’re not the same concept as we’re taught growing up. How can two people believe two opposing things and both things be true? How can we believe two different things and both of us be right? I’m not saying that its always the case that everyone is right and could never be wrong – relativism. Truths and beliefs do need to be balanced out with a sense of morality, ethics and compassion that transcends through all societies. But, at a different level, we can both have a different approach for the same end result. There is not just “one way”.
The strongest ideas and beliefs are those that came about after we were nudged enough to make us uncomfortable. We learn some information that pushes against what we think is true. We finally realize that what we believe can stand the test or needs to be re-evaluated. The strongest convictions come from not taking just one point of view, but looking through the different ideas and deciding for ourselves what is true for us- which may not be the truth for someone else.
