Do you stand strong in your Beliefs?

I stand strong in some of my beliefs but I have to admit there are other beliefs that I had to let go of. What about you; do you guard your beliefs? Are you open to listening to other view points that challenge your beliefs? I agree with standing strong in your beliefs but not if those beliefs are proven to be wrong. Some times we can believe in something so strongly but we can be sincerely wrong as it doesn't make the belief true. I know the older I get the more my belief system changes. What about you? What do you think?

i always have beliefs from everything. it may not necessaily come from my parents or education but by my own personal stand. sometimes it may be proven wrong, however, i think hard if i should forgo it because other people thin otherwise. everyday i encounter a lot of people who makes me look at people in different perspectives but it doesnt mean that i have changed my beliefs.

I don't see the point of hanging on to a belief if it is proven to be a wrong. There are sure many ways to think about things in life isn't there? Like you said many perspectives.
