Before and After
Have you actually though If you were born or raised in a different place or atmosphere from the one that you've already been? You would not exactly be your present you. Thinking about it makes me wondering, how we can be so sure about the way we behave or think while we could be easily somebody else if we were living somewhere else...well, let's not go that far. Even if we were raised by another family in our neighborhood, this would be still valid.
Isn't it enough to give us the courage to question our beliefs, manners and habits at least once in our lives? and if so, what would this doubt bring to us?
What about marriage? Isn't it like another birth that can affect every thing incredibly? Seems we have more control on its type than our place of birth but still the coming results are unpredictable.
My teacher that I told you about the other time is an American who did question and then changed her beliefs 18 years ago. She did this while she was getting married to her Libyan husband. Two enormous changes. Was she so in love or extremely courageous OR both?
