From Dorothy Sayers’ essay Why Work?
It is always strange and painful to have to change a habit of mind; though, when we have made the effort, we may find a great relief, even a sense of adventure and delight, in getting rid of the false and returning to the true.
One thought on “Changing your mind”
In my younger years, I was a staunch Republican, primarily due to my upbringing. As I grew older, I have shifted many of my views to align more closely with the Democrats. I sometimes wonder what the chance is that my views will shift back to Republican at some point. Is it more likely to happen because I used to identify as Republican? Or, like a paper clip that has been bent and now resists returning back to its original shape, am I less likely to revert?
