Cultural Quote #322: Beliefs

Beliefs don’t go away because you cannot not believe something you think you saw. So if somebody said to you, “Oh Shelly’s blonde.” You’d say, “No, she’s a redhead.” And they’d say, “No, she’s blonde.” Then you’d say, “No. I was with her. She’s a redhead. I see that.” So we think we saw “life is hard.” “I’m not good enough.” “I’m not important.” “Mistakes and failures are bad.” And so we develop these beliefs and they stay with us throughout our lives, because we think we see them.
