Each person will have his or her own share of philosophical beliefs as far as principles are concerned. Once they are exposed or find themselves with friends or peers, there will be times that they will be tempted to alter some of these principles since they want to belong. As much as possible don’t resort to that. While it is true that you may have differences with other people, it remains that you have to stick to your own principles and values. If they work for you since you started believing in them, then why change them?
This personal philosophy covers a wide area for anyone. It may entail business decisions to personal ones. While you may find the beliefs of others as effective for themselves, remember that the same may not necessarily hold true to yourself. It is all about how you approach it. Personal philosophies may vary but are really meant to be unique for anyone these days. That is simply something that has to be put in mind.
For some, doing this may go as far as affecting relationships and socialization. People will look at you in a different light which may not necessarily be favorable. This should not bother you as a person. Just because someone else disagrees or is not at all comfortable with your philosophy means that you have to change for them. Even married couples experience this. While some would change in the initial parts of their union, you will find that they eventually fall back to the known principles that they had initially been known for. Personal philosophies are simply hard to alter especially once they are inherited and gotten accustomed to.
