Two weeks ago, I wrote about how much of what we think is truth is actually social conditioning. I also said I was going to go hunt out some errant crap with the help of my conditioning-spotting Truffle pig. Here’s what Wilbur Waddles found:
There is not enough (scarcity thinking)
Women are too emotional. (like, too emotional to do what, exactly?)
I must prove my worth. I prove it by what I achieve, collect, do, etc.
Women don’t want other women to be successful.
Beauty is in ideals such as thinness, skin color, youth, height, etc.
Busy = important.
If I have more stuff, I’ll be happier or safer or some other feeling I want to feel.
I should smile more. And it’s okay for you to tell me to smile.
The older I get, the less useful I am.
Young people haven’t lived long enough, so their idealism isn’t real.
You’re nobody unless someone is in love with you. Right now.
If you don’t agree with me, one of us is wrong.
Someone else is always more – smarter, braver, more worthy, better.
There’s a long list of things I have to be to be lovable.
Something about me always needs fixing, which translates to “I am always broken.”
What’s one thing you were conditioned to believe that isn’t really true? Or two? Or three?
Wilbur and I are gonna keep hunting. You’re welcome to join us.
In the meantime, remember these things: You are loved. We are all loved. Let’s all be kind. And in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light,
By the way, errant social conditioning is toxic to everyone!
