I'm not sure I understand what you're saying, nor an I sure you appreciate it too greatly.
In any case, whatever it is that you are referring to as a 'belief' may well collapse, yet the emotions underpinning it will NOT.
One cannot see that which is not within oneself.
Well indeed the tendency towards delusion exists in all of us, and one only needs to look at the religious, the many scientists (also religious) of this world, folk who believe it is a good thing to lie to their children at this time of year about a jolly fat bloke in a red suit etc. to recognise abounding evidence for this.
Therefore I also have this tendency - AS DO YOU
. Yet it would be apparent you aren't cognisant of this fact, so that in itself could be regarded as a delusion, huh?
