Unlearning a way of thinking is often very difficult, possibly the most difficult thing anyone would ever do. With something that is hard physically, you simply go work out and build up strength until you can accomplish the task. But when your obstacle is Mental you must be able to break it down, and yet not remove the wall.
I have wondered . . . How is it possible to build a Blue wall in the place of a Black wall without removing the Black wall?
Then a good friend helped me to see that the wall doesn't have to be all one color. Both colors can be part of the wall. So all I have to do is figure out which bricks need replaced from the Black, and then remove it and insert a Blue brick.
Knowing what to do is only the beginning, the actually doing it takes time and effort to change not only the way you act, but also the way you think. Rethinking things and changing your mind is usually not all that difficult, but having a permanent change in how you see things is often a very hard struggle.

I have one year left on my Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In that time I hope to assimilate all the Blue bricks I need to in order to make my wall balanced as it should be.
