Every person has a belief system by which they live their lives and make life-affecting decisions. That belief system foundation is from a lifetime of influences and experiences. A belief system is crucial because it is at the core of your self-worth.
What you believe yourself to be; you will see in the mirror. When one begins to compromise their belief system to accommodate something or someone; it is a corrosion of self. That lack of self will show in, and how you live your life and the choices you make.
I believe all of us at different periods in our life will hit the wall of analysis of what is our personal belief system. Often the death of someone close will bring home the reality that life does end. Within your belief system is your thought of what is life after death. It can cause one to question how they are living their life.
A divorce, kind of like a death of sorts, puts you in a new life situation for the reevaluation of your individual identity and belief system apart from being a couple. As mutual friends, all in our mid 50’s, in conversations we begin to embrace our changing bodies and thoughts — our belief systems adjust.
The gift of life is the constant evolving and growth of self.
As we have more experiences and broader based influences, we can solidify our belief system. There is empowerment in a belief system. Knowing who you are, what you believe in, that confidence in self will never fail you.
