Understanding Misconception

A Story by Mrs Mania

Often times, people subconsciously consider anything “new” to be a bad thing. I believe that the root cause here is fear.

Any action.. any initiative we can take to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and out of our routine, gives us the opportunity to gain an open-mind. With an open-mind, we gain the virtues of acceptance and understanding. The longer we remain in the confines of our comfort zone, the more we are prone to a closed-minded lifestyle.
