    Correct me please

    If what you are asking is do I enjoy reading, the answer is yes ,although i don't always find enough time to read ,i love reading about religions ,cultures,and literature
    I am not big on history, I find it extremely misleading, I am also very interested in books that talk about mind, and human potential.
    I very much enjoy reading about law, human rights, and morals,thats why I am majoring in law. unfortunately I don't read a lot of Science but I am planning on changing that..

    Re: Correct me please

    Would you please check this one also

    Knowing that the great potential I thought comes from an outside source lies with in me helped me let go of a deity.

    This is complex. It took me a few readings to understand it.
    "Knowing that the great potential that I originally thought came from an outside source actually lay within me helped me let go of a deity."
    That's one fix. Adding "originally" and then "actually" acts like a mental roadmap of what's changing in the sentence.

    You should have said that then. But 5jj has corrected your first sentence. I suppose you mean the second and third sentences of your first post?
    If you are majoring in Law, you will understand the need to say exactly what you mean.

    I am not big on history, I find it extremely misleading, I am also very interested in books that talk about mind, and human potential.
    No, you can't join these three sentences with commas. You can't say "I'm not interested in X, and I'm also interested in Y."
    "I am not big on history; I find it extremely misleading. But I am also very interested in books that talk about the mind, and human potential."

    I very much enjoy reading about law, human rights, and morals. Thats why I am majoring in law. Unfortunately I don't read a lot of science, but I am planning on changing that.
    This one's better. The two dots you've ended with is not a punctuation mark in English.
    If you're talking about university subjects, you can capitalise Law and Science. But if you capitalise one, you must treat the other the same.
