Lies we believe


We think differently ,we come from different backgrounds and this dictates our actions everyday.Every person has their own “Reality” based upon the inner drives.Sometimes have found myself getting caught up in other people’s realities which disorient and disable me in the process.The same realities give us our personal definitions of success and happiness.

Recently I met  a lady who was making a speech about the lies we believe in.She went on to explain how she enjoyed dancing when she was growing up and how she liked it,how the people enjoyed and always invited her to dance in the events and special occasions 

One day she went home to find her whole family waiting to confront her about the dancing that had become like a hobby.They told her that she was embarrassing herself and the family and that the people lied to her that she was a good dancer.She believed them because they were her closest people  and from that day she refused any offer by anyone asking her to dance,later in life she realized her dreams were cut shot at a very tender age

Listening to that story I kept asking myself …How many lies do we believe just because they are coming from the very people that we look up to. How many times do we stop in the middle of the road because someone who is working with their realities told you that you are not going the right direction.How many times do we confront our children to stop an hobby simply because we didn’t do it ourselves 

Part of the reason we continue holding to our beliefs or things that we were told  is that we don’t like being wrong. Once we’ve formed a belief, we tend to look for more evidence to support that belief and to discount contradictory evidence.

I echo the words of Zat Rana who said .Maybe we should start seeing the world like nobody else, ask the kind of questions that nobody else is asking.The questions that generally begin with one word: “Why..

The best part is that we are not all meant to be living in one shared reality.Diversity is dynamic and so like someone said we just need to demonstrate love wherever you go and sometimes love means being silent or walking away.
