At the time did you rationalize this position or simply feel it?

Personal development is not something that need stop at adulthood. You  
are capable of evolving your whole life, to adapt to changing times.  
That we can change our minds faster than nature can change our genes  
is why we evolved minds in the first place. You are a work in  
progress; have fun with it.
