When we were children, we were fearless. We would stick our hands in the fire, chew on the beetle bugs, and eat that dirt. But, over time, we learned those things that we should not do through experience and from “parental voices” — those baseless fears passed down through the generations. Later in life, we learned that fire burns, beetle bugs are “yucky” and dirt is not nutritious. But, we also learned all of the things that our parents learned, including their fears and phobias, and integrated those lessons into our own “belief systems.”
