It Is Important To Challenge Your Beliefs
Let's try to get through this one without mentioning any one specific thing. I am literally tired of typing a certain name and t.v. show. I would just like to point out that it's important that you examine what you stand for every once in a while. Why go through life being a part of something, or even being a part of nothing, if you haven't bothered to give it any thought?
Let's say you love oranges and you eat one every day. Your really couldn't imagine your life without them. Then lets say that all of a sudden it was revealed that every time you ate an orange a puppy died. Would it change your love for oranges? Would you keep eating them? It doesn't really matter what your answer is. What is important is you took some time to decide what kind of person you're going to be.
Controversies like the recent ones generally make people choose up sides. That's not a bad thing if you take some time to think about how you really feel and how the other side feels. Now amongst the opinions recently were the middle groups who I really felt like were judging the situation by whether they like the t.v. show or not, and to me that's a cop out. Others really went out on a limb and said this is SO right or this is SO wrong. At least those folks took the time to think rather than to go through their lives oblivious of the consequences of their actions.
So whenever these things come up, take a minute before you take a stand. You could end up a stronger person because of it.
