Metanoia (n.) the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self or way of life.
It is ok to change your mind.
More than that, it’s important you do.
Why? Because people identify themselves with the thoughts they have at that moment and if their thoughts change then their identity changes. The fastest way to change the way you feel or who you think you are is to change your thoughts.
You see, thoughts are objective and what you thought was right at one time is not necessarily true now. You have your own permission to change your mind.
This is scary.
Why is it so scary.
Group identity. If you change your beliefs then you might have to change your group. That’s worrisome for many people that get habituated to the sameness even when they outgrow it.
Maybe the world isn’t the way you think it is.
Applying Metanoia when it comes to love its essential.
Just like we don’t have to finish everything we start. When you find yourself in a relationship that doesn’t fit who you have become you can change your mind. If you think about it, there is something inherently unnatural about forcing ourselves to complete something in our lives when we’ve changed and it no longer serves us.

You have the right to be a different person than you were fifteen minutes ago.
Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
