For the last 25 years, I have called earth home, I have learnt a couple of things that have helped me stay alive for as long as I gave. I have heard you can never be experienced at life because at times there are curveballs that will have you questioning everything.
I understand and know we all have our principles and beliefs that have moulded us to be who we are today. We have morals and standards that have set us apart from other people; be it culture, religion etc. These are some of the foundations that have built or broken relationships. We all come from different countries, races, continents and backgrounds, that means we will have different views on certain things- and that is alright.
What I am here to inform or rather “teach” you is, it is ok to change your views when exposed to new information.
I have come to learn that you always do not know everything. We say that a lot and at times it sounds cliche, but at times we can be so bound in our own world we forget there are over 7 billion people who can help us be better. I am not saying be quick to change your mind on certain things, but be open to seeing what agrees with you and what does not. Stand firm but also grow.
For example, I have come to learn that you do not ALWAYS have to agree with your loved ones. You can have different views and still coexist.
If you have any questions, please do not be shy to ask. I might not have the perfect answer but I will answer as best as I could, and you could also help me grow in the process.
