Sometimes, it’s not enough to affirm that ‘our thoughts create our reality’.
Without the willingness to break free from our own mental prisons, this catchphrase becomes wildly ineffective. Without the effort to rise above our prejudices, to challenge our biases, to question our paradigms, change is but a distant, ephemeral mirage.
Sometimes, we also need to unlearn, to deprogram ourselves, to unwire and rewire our neural connections. To disengage from the morbid, compulsory grip of the past, and make room for the future, for no empowering, conscious belief will truly take root in our minds while we are stuck in the rut of social conditioning and trauma-induced beliefs. This might be the hardest, yet bravest and most rewarding task we’re called to face as humans who are also members of a society.
