This week, I began listening to the audiobook of the controversial ‘12 Rules for Life: An Antidote for Chaos’ by Jordan B Peterson.
I’m generally suspicious of religious belief and have, for many years, considered myself a liberal and progressive. But although only half-way through, I’m having these beliefs about my beliefs challenged. It’s confirmed something I’ve semi-consciously suspected for a long time, but have been too lazy and weak to challenge – I’ve shirked my responsibility to society to maintain self-discipline and have selfishly pursued personal happiness above all else in recent years. To little avail.
Time to change.
