~An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought in it. ~ M. Twain
I believe that one’s morals and beliefs are shaped by how they are raised. When something seems contrary to those beliefs, we dismiss it out of hand or find ways to find fault with it. I am guilty of that; assuming that if someone believes something differently than me, then they must be wrong and by doing that I am not keeping an open heart or mind. Perhaps, I should stop, listen, weigh all of the evidence and allow myself to see something from another perspective. I believe they call that growth.
