Opinionated

Atualizado: 16 de mai. de 2023

Everyone has an opinion! Opinions are direct correlations with past events that have occurred and consequently feelings have been formed. An attitude then also comes from intuition, you know that gut view brought on from living the moment.

The problem lies perhaps in formed opinions from lack of input. In other words, first impression has a way of impregnating a decision, as it is a spur of the moment thing. That window of light is what strikes a chord. An example of this is the way we look when meeting someone for the first time. The way an interviewer sees and hears us will make a mark that might sway their decisiveness when choosing a candidate for a job.


Other people could judge you negatively from forming an opinion that differentiates from theirs. My parents taught me to respect other peoples’ opinions even if mine were different. I might think they were foolish beliefs, but then having the patience to appreciate that not everything is formed overnight, and that it takes surrounding circumstances and influences to give people their insights and ultimately have their take on a situation. They are entitled to make a decision to form their opinion, as they see fit.


They may be wrong or persuaded to disagree, but then it’s just an opinion. It is where they stand over a matter at that given time. People sometimes change their minds over time, as this is part of growing up and perhaps seeing things from a different perspective. We have to be responsible for our decisions and fair play; if others judge then it is completely understandable. Opinions are just opinions.


I don’t think friendships should be lost over opinions because frankly that shows fanaticism when one party is so strongly opinionated that they break a relationship over it. It means they cannot take the fact that you see things differently. For God’s sake, grow up!


“Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgment. And you can see forever.” ~Nancy Lopez.
