As they say, "the mind is a terrible thing to waste." I never realized that we get our subconscious thoughts from others. However, this makes sense to me. I have always joked around with friends about the power of suggestion; having ESP; reading my mind; and being telepathic. I just never realized how true it was. I did however, know that the company you keep says a lot about you. I also know the effects of peer pressure. My Mom always reminded my sister and I to "set the pace". In other words, be your own girl. It was so tough being lectured to all the time. Now I know why it was neccessary. The brain is very powerful. Some of us are very impressionable. Apparently, it has nothing to do with age. It affects 5 year olds as much as 65 year olds. It all depends on your life experiences. It is also very difficult to go against the grain. No one wants to be the "odd ball." You have to be super strong. No one likes being rejected. You have to have confidence. One must stregnthen the mind daily. Whether, by reading, doing puzzles or meditating, it can be done. Otherwise, the mind can turn into mush. The good news is that, this condition is reversible!
Thank you Michael and Linda Dloughy for having confidence in us.
