Something that came up in a discussion about what makes up who we are. This person I was discussing this with, she is a very traditional one. She believes that our believes, our thoughts, our opinions, they make up who we are. They are what makes up our identity, and if we change them, then we aren't the same person anymore.
I responded to that by saying that we are not the believes we hold, but the vessel which holds these believes, and even if they may change, that was makes us who we are does not.
Do you think that is hard to follow?
Do you think there may be some truth to it?
Can you think of a better way to frame this thought?
