ok since our society is getting more and more advanced, and more and more people are getting educated, there is no space for traditional beleives... so why do people still beleive in them? i mean... so what if you have learnt to practice it since young? i mean... what part of it is related in today's context of life? i dont really practise traditional beleifs... so i want to know your opinions.

Why can't there be room in one's life for both? The modern and traditional selves. When I was younger, maybe 15 years old, I struggled to find myself and rejected all that I had known. Now that I am in my early thirties and a mother, I have found myself, again. Shedding the past will help you identify the beliefs that are most important to you in your current state. And later you can choose to adopt the beliefs that fit your current life. Be open to your new path.

I am not a very traditional perso, but I kow o a lot of people who are. We hae gotten ito some iteresting disagreements because of our varying belies. The way I see it, some people just want a custom in their live that has survived for many generations. I am not that hung up on that, and only want what is practical.
