My political beliefs changed overtime – they soften.
As a kid I repeated what I’ve heard the night before at the dinner table. Then, as a teenager I got politicized by my friends, went to protests, went to political meetings, it was some kind of rite of passage to adulthood. Then I started working, I had new people around me, I realized things are more complex and it is OK to think differently.
When I take a step back I realize I am not the same person I was 5 years ago when I was a student, not the same person I was 10 years ago when I was a teenager, not the same person I was 20 years ago when I was a kid. I’ve realized I’ve changed, my views changed, what I believed was the truth was only a matter of perspective.
I started doubting my political views around 20, because who knows what I will be thinking in 5 years, 10 years, 15 years? I decided I didn’t want to be stuck with the same views my all life. Today, I still expect my views to change in the future – otherwise it means I’m stuck in the same environment for too long.
