Are You Trapped By Your Beliefs Or Can You Still Think Outside The Box?
Far to often in our life we will be told something by someone we trust and respect, be it our parents, a clergy man/ woman, a friend or an authority and we will take in this information as if it was God’s truth.

So why do we stick with these beliefs, because we don’t want to prove the people we respect wrong, nor do we want to look like fools because we followed something that’s not true, so we carry on living a life lead by B.S.
