Things That I Believe To Be True

What do you believe in?  What beliefs make you you?

A personal philosophy is something that everyone should have.  I’m not talking about religion.  No, personal philosophies are much more complex than that.  Not that religion isn’t important, but this isn’t a post about religion in the traditional sense.  While philosophy and religion can go hand in hand, one greatly influencing the other, there is much more to a person than religion and that is what I want to discuss.  Our experiences not only make us who we are, but inspire how we perceive situations and how we react to what happens to us.  While some beliefs may be silly, others are much stronger in molding our character and ourselves into the kind of people we want to be.
