This topic has been brewing in my mind for quite some time now. I have been trying to find the right way to address this.
Did you know that your subconscious records a lot of things even when we do not make a conscious effort?
Let me state an instance, there was a time when my family and I were watching the discovery channel and a weird looking animal was shown, even without the channel identifying the animal, I knew the name of the animal all because I had seen the animal in a cartoon (zootopia). I didn’t make a conscious effort to know the name of that animal but I knew the name, this is because my subconscious caught the name. This is the same with so many things.
The mind is the key to the soul and if we feed it rubbish, we end up being rubbish without realising it.
We pick up a lot of things from what we read or watch, we pick up slangs, behavioural patterns (after watching Bigbang so much, I began to act like Sheldon unconsciously),mannerism, gestures, amongst other things.
