Here lies a little lesson on the importance of one's self, provided by yours truly.  You matter.  I do not mean this in any way regarding self esteem issues or an inspirational dilemma regarding one's self-worth or image.  I mean this strictly to say that you--and only you--matter....to you.  You are the only person you can truly rely on.  Ever had to worry about whether something you were telling yourself, or someone else, for that matter, was a lie?  Of course not!!  You know exactly when you are lying--whether you choose to take action over it or not is  disregardable.  The fact that you know is the only important thing.  Think about an incident that you had suspicion about, say, regarding a loved one or even a friend!  Did you feel your gut drop at the sound of their response, assuming there was a question asked and an answer given?  Did you take action on that gut-feeling? Or did you file it away in the part of your mind that stores these types of all-consuming things--the files that are fit to burst at any given time, unleashing horrendous realizations and connections that every part of your being, besides your gut, of course,  are completely unaccustomed to?  Of course you did the latter.  You did the latter because the other (wrong) side of your mind came to the conclusion that there may be some shred of hope in the way of doubt of the gut.  This is in no way the route to take.  The gut does not lie.  The filing system of abandoned suspicion does not lie.  The disconnect here comes from a type of bypass tunnel, if you will, that connects that "other (wrong) side of the mind" to itself!  It cycles in the way that it takes the little shreds of hope and continuously accelerates them around and around in a circle--not so fast that they don't collect other fragments of hope and fabricated delusions--to ultimately over-power the signals from the gut.  See, the gut and the filing system are a good team.  They coexist perfectly fine and maintain control (although in most cases there is a smaller drawer in the system which is dedicated solely to the files and feelings that neither the gut nor the mind as a whole can decipher).  This drawer is to be counted as completely obsolete in this discussion.  This disconnect I mentioned occurs when the bypass tunnel becomes so stuffed with wild ideas (hopes and dreams) that it bulges and completely cuts off the supply line between the gut and the filing system.  When this happens, control is left in the unstable grasp of the wrong side of the mind.  This is not good.  The only way to combat this destructive system is to allow truths in.  Truths exist as permanent documents in the filing system as well as free-floating entities in the spaces outside of the minds grasp.  These two types of truths come to be by means of two different processes.  The first process involves is the afore-mentioned collaboration of the gut and filing system.  This type is longer-forming and usually tends to be more affective overall in the long run.  The second is more direct.  In this case, the truths enter the mind from an external source--be it sense-derived, or data from another person.
