Day 141 -
the ability to say "i could see how you could believe that, & it’s okay for you to believe that. that’s not what i believe, but that’s okay too." senior year in high school me & @vp36 were sitting in class talking with another classmate & they said that they didn’t believe in God. i said “what!?” & turned my nose up it them, like “are you sane right now?” Vin looked at me & said “we can’t come off like that towards people. that only pushes people away, & that not how we want to make them feel.” it’s not anyone’s job to change another’s beliefs, nor should anyone shun another for believing something different.
instead, by an individual being firm in their beliefs & living a positive life, their life will automatically inspire another to redirect themselves onto a more positive path.
there are 82 different religions in the world, & 21 different Holy Text. find 1 that fits for you, compliments you, & brings you peace. & with Peace, you’ll become too noble to have any controlling tendencies.
