Google "Believe in Yourself" and you will be told that you have to, and why you need to. Look at the reasons from a philosophical standpoint.
(Why do we need to believe in ourselves?) OR (Why do we need others to believe in us?) =
Why do we need to be believed?
Isn't it strange that we are told that we need to be believed?
Are our lives built on such tenuous lies that without that belief we would DIE?
Isn't it appallingly feeble if this is true?
A) Assume that our lives are built on real foundations. Would we need to be believed? What purpose would it serve ourselves to be believed? I can see that it would be useful to others if THEY believed US, so that they may choose to copy how we build our lives on real foundations.
B) Assume that our lives are built on a fragile pyramid of lies. Can we sustain ourselves without being believed? Are we held up only by belief, whether that is coming from others or ourselves?
I therefore suggest that it is a lie that we must believe in ourselves, or that we are helped by others whom believe in us. This lie is purely to sustain lies upon which our lives are built.
I feel much happier knowing this truth! Is this philosophy?
