What if a healthy outlook comprises multiple contradictory worldviews each featuring beliefs and attitudes nested inside seemingly conflicting value systems that appear diametrically opposed to the behaviors they manifest and choices they inform?

What if part of growth comes when deep down you realize that each of us is a living, breathing paradox.

We don’t realize just how subjective our experience of life and reality is.

Some of the most important lifestyle choices we need to make are also the most personal, meaning there’s rarely any authoritative objective source of information available to steer you in the “right” direction.

On the one hand, scientists haven’t rigorously researched these matters because other more pertinent matters take priority and funding is limited. On the other hand, authorities on spiritual matters don’t address these matters because they (seem to) offend religious values.

As well, you can’t discuss them with friends and family because, well, it’s too personal.

So, you’re on your own. Just you, your gut/intuition, and your cumulative subjective life experiences.

Ultimately, many lifestyle choices we have to figure by ourselves. Take an educated guess. And be open to revising them as our experience grows.
