two things that I’ll probably spend the rest of my life unlearning

1.) people are inherently bad. if anything, people are inherently good. whether i learned it directly or sub-textually, this is a life philosophy that i do not ascribe to any longer, but have found that it has deep roots in my outlook.

2.) the world is out to get you. “the world” is not out to get you. the world doesn’t care about you at all. people are not plotting your demise. they are focused on their own lives.

I’ve found the best (only?) way to change these beliefs is to live into them…behave as if what you want to believe is true– and then eventually it will feel as true as the old beliefs did.
