    Just make the decision to stop letting people penetrate your mind pussy and stop having a follower mentality because the world is a den of vipers and ulterior motives and the best truth is always going to be the one you make yourself and force on other people. L Ron Hubbard mode.

Their feelings and desires are of wax: the last comer stamps them with his seal and obliterates all previous impressions. These never gain anything, for they lose everything so soon. Every one dyes them with his own colour. They are of no use as confidants; they remain children their whole life. Owing to this instability of feeling and volition, they halt along cripples in will and thought, and totter from one side of the road to the other.

    Whatever your parents believed, either believe that or believe the opposite of that (you can flip a coin if this decision is too daunting). Then assume everyone that doesn't agree with you is stupid, naive or deliberately lying for personal gain. Do not allow information that challenges your beliefs into your head, dismiss it immediately by applying one of the above labels to whoever or whatever presented you that information.

    I think part of why fiction is good is that it lets you explore what it would be like to believe in these things and to live in a world where they make sense. You just need to develop that sense of 'aesthetic distance' from the ideas. Appreciate ideas for the kinds of worlds and characters and moods they imply, rather than their objective truth. That's the Fiction Enjoyer's privilege.

    This is a blessing, even if it doesn't seem like one. Just find a belief system whose followers are typically happy and read its scholars. Ultimately being happy is a far better use of your time than being correct so be grateful that it's so easy for you to change what you believe.

          Reality always asserts itself. Irrational beliefs, unless strictly compartmentalized, tend to lead to irrational actions, and irrational actions tend to lead to failure and hardship.

            Yes people get rewarded for being stupid and evil all the time. They only need to be somewhat consistent in their participation. A better way of judging is to extend the timeframe of examination out to all their grandchildren.

    >every response is just “you’re easily suggestible when it comes to religion? Convert to MY religion!”
    >forgetting that even if they snag OP for a few weeks or a month, OP will just leave them once after finding something else
    Did you morons really think OP had just never heard of Catholicism or the Occult before?

      Brings to mind the former youtuber Sneako who loves getting on the bandwagon of every other influential person who appears more successful than he does and staking his life on them, ready to defend them with his life then abandoning them once someone more interesting enters the picture. Its fricking terrifying to think normies live like this, ignorant and even hostile to the truth, and ready to die for ideas they have no ability of scrutinizing.

    What might actually help you with that is stopping reading and otherwise exposing yourself to these things for a while.

    Instead, stay away from books and other political/religious content for three months or so and journal your thoughts daily.

    I've been in similar places. The key to not only deeply understanding concepts but also vetting them is context. Read about an idea and then go try it on for a whole. Go have life experiences and see if the perspective makes sense. If you read one after another, you're probably missing out.

    You're not weak minded and suggestible. You demonstrate awareness of your own suggestibility. The vast majority, 95% not even 80%, lack this basic awareness and brashly believe in the strength of their "own" convictions which are of course adopted second or third hand.

    You should learn critical thinking in order to distinguish between good and bad arguments.
    However you can learn something useful from almost every political, philosophical and religious dogma.

    You're already on the right path. Each last thing you read helps inform the new one, eventually you'll reach a point where all this knowledge converges, and you'll start to build your own belief system

      Not necessarily a good thing. Many people do this and end up with shitty world views. Ideas aren't dialectical as you think, and get progressively better. Because your view of what's "better" change with it and it can get worse.
