Whatever you believe is what becomes your REALITY.

If you believe you can, you will.
If you believe you can't, you won't.
If you believe you are not lovable, you won't be.
If you believe you are not smart enough, you won't be.
If you believe you will die from your disease, you will.
If you believe you are not good enough, you never will be.
If you believe other people are against you, they will be.
If you believe money is more powerful than you are, it will be.
If you believe you have no influence over other people, you won't
If you believe other people are more powerful than you, they will be.

Whatever you believe is what becomes your REALITY.
When your self-identity and beliefs merge, differences feel threatening. You are likely to defend your turf, become righteous and angry, and possibly shame or abuse other people who see things differently.  When people adopt a belief--be it about religion, politics, sex roles, or whatever--as the one, correct belief, their minds get locked up in a rigid box, and other people with different beliefs are seen as the enemy.  And what do you do to the enemy?  Abuse them, shame them, hate them, or even kill them. . . .
Listen to your beliefs, think about how you learned them, and realize that they are not genetic, nor are they the "only way."  You are free to acquire new perspectives, to absorb new ideas, and to question everything you were taught to believe.  As your mind opens to exploration and change, you'll feel a new lightness and more joy.
