I have a lot of strong beliefs of right and wrong and I know I have a tendency to make things that aren’t quite so simple be black and white. And for as much as I wish I was open-minded (and I feel I no longer am), condensing everything to this kind of simplicity makes it more difficult to empathize.
But it doesn’t change the things I believe in or the intensity I feel for it. But beliefs don’t really quite make you. Oftentimes, I wish I’d get tested to see if I can turn belief into action, even if I know how tiring and difficult that would be.
Here’s to hoping my beliefs mean behavior mean a better person.
