Be a herpes scientist: Back up your beliefs with real facts
The thing about science is that it doesn’t allow room for making determinations without the facts to back it up. A scientific mind, as stated in the book “Flow” requires “enough skepticism and openness of mind to reject beliefs that are not supported by facts” (p. 137). Yet most of us take on beliefs of our society and people who don’t even have herpes without even knowing the facts yet.
And what are facts but information stripped of judgment so that you can apply your own sense of meaning to it. So don’t only arm yourself with the facts of how often you will get an occurrence and how it can be spread so you can keep future partners from getting it, too, but also what other people who are close to you really think about it instead of keeping it to yourself and assuming the worst. Then you build your own beliefs around your reality instead of assumptions floating around your head.
