Superstitions=Limitations

It is the 21st century now, the computer age, and the technology era, but still, some of us could not let go of superstitions. I don't include religion here, because that topic is far different from what I mean. The think about black cats, lucky numbers, color of clothes and what we should and shouldn't do in funerals are only a few of many more beliefs we have all over the world. I used to do these silly practices too because they are a part of my culture and it has been difficult to part with them. Now, I have realized that they only limit the things I could have done and the person I could become. What are your thoughts on this?

@JeeyanDee Superstition is a way of explaining the unknown or something that is really hard to explain although modern science proved otherwise my friend.

I agree. It is just frustrating though that people allow themselves to be blinded by reality because of it. The only thing it does is hinder our potential to do more things

@JeeyanDee Superstition is as old as mankind itself and it will not be wipe out 100% my friend despite the advent of modern science.

@mandala100 Sadly, I must agree. I hope though that the technological innovations we have achieved will open the eyes of more people

I do agree on that there are some superstitious beliefs in my country. I find it bizarre to practice them

Same here! I used to think it normal since almost everyone seems to practice them, but then growing up, I realized how silly and even stupid they are sometimes. I was like, why won't you sleep your floors at night when it's dirty?

@JeeyanDee Sometimes old folks are in rage if I am not doing the old practices that are connected to superstitious beliefs.

@Shavkat Ugh! I totally know what you mean. I have to hide from my mom whenever I cut my nails at night.

I consider myself too old to worry about what people think in trivial things, so superstitious or not, I will do certain things if I happen to be in the mood . (The advantage of getting older !)

Hahaha. I guess you're right and I'm at that age where I question norms and hating limitations brought by it.

Well i guess we have our own differences and opinions. We'll just have to respect and tolerate each and one of us. What are your thoughts on those?

We have religion but superstitions for us is for alert only. Means whatever we do need to careful. Better to be on the safe side.
