Worldviews

You hold on to your worldview, like a little kid to a security blanket. 

Don’t be ashamed of your attachment. Have a tolerant approach.

Abrupt removal of the blanket is likely to backfire and make the 
transition process take much longer. 

It’s important to remember that your attachment to your 
transitional object is valid and beneficial.

Identities

It's difficult for Jews and Palestinians to get along.
The same goes for sunni muslims and shia muslims,
right-wingers and left-wingers, born again christians and atheists,
religious fundamentalists and pluralists, bigots and liberals,
spiritualists and materialists, rich and poor, extroverts and introverts, 
educated and uneducated...

Our identities divide us.

But, what is an identity, really? What is it made of?
Ideas? Thoughts? Vivid imagination?

Identities seem so extremely solid and unshakable even though they're not.
Left-wingers can change and become right-wingers,
religious people can become atheists and an atheists can become religious

Nothing is written in stone.
