Benefits of having an open mind

To me this post is really important.I want to talk about something that I think is my best characteristic,I am the biggest open minded person you will ever meet.
As a kid I grew up in a very judgmental environment,for some reason people would judge you even they have no idea who you are.They look at you weirdly or they say something that might hurt you.Luckily my parents raised me and my brother in a really good way,they thought us to be accepting,they didn't want us to judge other people.
When you have a closed mind, it’s easy to rush to conclusions. You pass judgment because you believe that there is only one answer or one solution in any given situation. You take the first thing that enters your head and establish it as fact.
However, sometimes you’re wrong. When that happens it can hurt relationships, negatively affect your health and certainly alter how positively you see the world.
Open-mindedness plays a significant role in living a happy and satisfying life. Since the art of living a happy life includes making right decisions at the right time, open-mindedness of a person allows him to do so.
Sometimes Open-mindedness was really bad for me, especially in High school.I was really different from others,I was listening to different music,I was wearing ''cool'' clothes.As I said I live in a very judgmental country.
Every time I wore colorful t-shirts with cool prints I would be called gay,which honestly is not the insult.
If every single person on this planet was open minded,this planet would be perfect place.

For this post I came up with few benefits of having an open mind,let's get started with my list.

·         Your world flourishes. It’s like only being able to see black and white and suddenly realizing that many shades of color exist. Your pallet is expanded from only having two possibilities to now having hundreds of options. Your selection is more plentiful and you’re not so boxed in with minimal selections.

·         You free your mind from limiting thoughts. Nothing holds you back more than thinking you know the answers so you never consider other alternatives. When you admit that there are several possible solutions or outcomes, you allow yourself to think beyond the boundaries where you normally would have stopped yourself.

·         You have more fun. You’re willing to try new, exciting things. You let go of whatever has held you back in the past and begin to embrace life. You experiment with different things and have more experiences.

·         You have more energy. When you aren’t so bogged down by negative thoughts and trying to figure everyone and everything out, you have more energy to focus on the important things in life, such as family, friends and good health.

·         Open-mindedness helps you gain confidence in you. Since being an open-minded person leads one to get more ideas, facts, knowledge and wisdom, one can become confident, because these are the necessary elements that help one greatly to live life in a confident manner. In this way, your self-confidence is a good cause to bring you desired success.

   At the end of the day who cares about people who are not open minded,who cares what other people say about you,do what you want to do.

You are the one who lives your life not others ! Do what makes you happy.
