What Do We Believe In, When We Stop Believing?

On this weeks episode, we’re chatting about: What Do We Believe In When We Stop Believing?

I’m not one of those people that think, “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.”

That phrase EXEMPLIFIES the antithesis of what I desire in life and what I want.

I’m one of those people that are open to anything until it doesn’t vibe with my instincts, my intuition.

I’m not sure how to explain that to you, I’ve recently come to understand myself as being an empath. That in itself is hard to grasp, understand, and articulate.

Being an empath is like being an emotional sponge, you soak up the emotions, feelings, and hurts of others. And if you don’t learn to guard yourself, and release these emotions they can really hurt you physically, even leading to depression.

Empaths are intuitive, open, and deep. I think it’s why I love doing this show, listening to and sharing others stories.

Paying to much attention to the news can wreak me, hearing and empathizing with to many peoples problems can take me into depression, as well as over examining my own can do the same.

WHEN LEAVING RELIGION developing what I do believe out of what I used to believe has been a journey.

It happens as I explore the world, interact and engage in the lives of other people.

I’ve learned to do this in a non-binary way, It has to be for me.

I learned that I believe in…

  • HUMANITY
  • INCLUSIVITY (Until toxicity)
  • STRIVING FOR UNDERSTANDING-IN ORDER TO FIND COMMON GROUND
  • SELF-CARE: 

Then the hippy shit…

  • I WANT WORLD PEACE
  • I WANT BASIC NEEDS MET FOR EVERY PERSON
  • I WANT FREE HEALTH CARE FOR EVERY PERSON
  • I WANT ALL PEOPLE TO BE TAKEN CARE OFF SO THAT WE CAN EACH FOCUS ON BETTERING OURSELVES RATHER THAN BUILDING CAPITALIST PYRAMIDS.

These beliefs are fluid, they change as I change. You don’t have to agree with them, but we’ll probably be better friends if you do. Haha.

I can strive to meet these beliefs without having to feel I need to enforce them on others. I can live them out in my lifestyle. With my family, in my neighborhood.

What are you believing? Do you have a life focus or trajectory that keeps you going?
