This Will Challenge Your Beliefs In A Way You Never Expected

2013-10-23-minchin

    Bias and prejudice are formed in our mind unconsciously. When we act, we don’t even realize there may be bias behind it. We simply take in different opinions and make them become our beliefs that we don’t ever challenge.

    Take a moment and think about the thoughts you have, what makes you think this way and what effect you have to the world by thinking this way?

    “Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible.” – Maya Angelou

    It’s good to think critically, but don’t just think critically about others, think critically about your own ideas too. Examine your thoughts from time to time, or else you’ll never realize there’s actually prejudice forming that affects your judgement and blinds you from knowing the truth.

    When you think, take reasoning, empathy and humility into account. Be an encourager, a helper and a lover because the world doesn’t need so many critics.
