I have become very mindful of what mentality I manifest over the past few decades.
Over time I have been able to cultivate a less compromised cognitive continuity.
In other words
I’m getting better at controlling my emotions.
The brain is all about efficient pathways.
Unfortunately, implicit bias or “habitual perceptions” as I like to call them are some of the most efficient pathways the brain creates. Allowing us the set our minds on “cruise control” and fly right past the crowded freeways of the human condition. If these habitual perceptions lean towards the negative then “cruise control” becomes “damage control”.
