Have you ever heard of the saying "Opinions are like a**holes...everyone has them"? Those are my thoughts exactly. This topic is so random but I wanted to write bout it because it is something that is becoming a little annoying to me.
We live in a time where people that you do not know can state their opinion and you are instantly privy to the information through the gift and the curse, Social Media. Social Media has broken some of the biggest stories worldwide, kick started some of the biggest movements and has allowed many of us to chime in on different topics/issues on a much larger scale. Through it all, it has given many of us the platform to share our Opinion.
Opinions aren't facts, they are just things that we express based on personal feelings. So WHY do people get so worked up when they don't agree with someone's opinion? If it is an opinion, then what the person says is NOT true! So now I am going to ask, does it really matter?
Everyone is so sensitive these days about how people articulate their thoughts. If you do not agree with the masses then you are automatically wrong. Contrary to popular belief if it cannot be proven then guess what.... they aren't neither right nor wrong. People don't know how to agree to disagree and I am here to let you know that it is okay to do so. This is the main reason why I stay away from commenting on topics unless I am asked for my opinion. I'm sure that someone may be interested in knowing what I might think about something but I don't like inviting people to come at me crazy when all I am doing is stating my opinion, just like they are, simply because it is annoying.
I just needed to get this off of my chest and now I am a little relieved. I understand this post may bring forth some opinions that I don't necessarily agree with but like I mentioned before it is okay, it is just fine. Life goes on.....
