Last week, I found myself getting open, honest and vulnerable with a colleague. She then did the same. It was amazing, really. It was a moment of unexpected intimacy between the two of us. Our interaction was candid and real. We both needed to vent out stress over a situation. I'll spare you the details, but it made me wonder why we don't question our beliefs and perceptions more?
When I was a kid, I questioned everything.
Why do I have to? Where am I going? How do I know that’s true? Why can’t I do it differently? If I do this, why does that happen? Why, why why…?
And what we learned from the answers to these questions formed our map of life.
As we grow up, this unique map with which we analyze life forms our “truth”. These “truths” shape everything we think, feel, say, want and do — and how we solve problems — without our being aware of it.
