Do you know your brain is similar to an amazing defense attorney.
How it works like an attorney is simple. You think a thought and it's your brain's job to go to work finding evidence to build a case for why that thought is true.
The technical term for what our brain is doing is called confirmation bias. This causes us to search for, favor, interpret, and recall information in a way that confirms our beliefs. This is a natural occurrence in everybody's brain.
I have a belief that I love my husband. Yesterday, my husband had gotten up earlier than me and I was slowly waking up and I smelt my husband's cologne. Because I have a belief that I love my husband my brain is constantly looking for evidence of why I love him. I smelt the cologne and had a thought, "I love my husband because he smells amazing" this enabled me to feel immediate love for him.
