Because we spend the majority of our lives either forming opinions, or listening to other people’s opinions, it’s important we’re informed about the opinions we go on to form.
It’s not that anyone goes out of their way to get opinions wrong, but without opinions being backed by facts that are supported by logic, our opinions and how we deliver those opinions will always fall short of the mark.
Bringing perceptions into opinions without research or logic, means our opinions cannot be quantified. Unfortunately, opinions can never be equal because there are so many things that need to be brought into the equation first that need to be considered.
When we come from a place of knowledge, our opinions will always be more robust and sophisticated, lending themselves to more relevant and accurate discussions. The more we go in and talk about things we know very little about, or we think we know, but don’t, the harder it will be to come back from or back down from those opinions.
It may also change other people’s perceptions of us because of how we handle ourselves, because without being completely informed, those opinions could well turn into arguments. Opinions help us grow emotionally and for that reason alone, it’s important to make sure our opinions are relevant and present.
