More Fiction Than Non

A belief is an opinion based on experience that may or may not be true. We filter information about what we experience using a personal lens. This lens is our interpretation, our personal bias. Personal bias is shaped by past experiences, the culture we live in and how we are feeling in the present. As a result, what we interpret is subjective, not fact.

When we are worried or anxious, we are responding to an uncertain or unknown threat. We are anticipating the possible danger based upon our imagined vision of the potential outcome. Chronic worry and anxiety produce real health problems, so learning to examine your personal bias will not only improve your well-being but allow you to embrace the fullness of the present.
