Why Opinions DON’T Matter!

An opinion is worth a dime a dozen. 💲

Everybody has them, good and bad, and now with the internet opinions can be shared instantaneously! 💻

Think about it: 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐝𝐢𝐝𝐧’𝐭 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐬 𝐰𝐞 𝐝𝐨 𝐧𝐨𝐰. 💨

If you wanted to write an opinion to a newspaper article, there was no guarantee your comment would even be featured in the newspaper! These days, we can easily see all of them in online comment sections. 📰

If you wanted to write an inflammatory message to someone, you’d have to get out a pen, paper, envelope, and stamp. You’d have to write the letter, package it, and then drive to the post office to mail it. 📮

The beauty of this communication was you’d have plenty of time to think twice before sharing an opinion you might later regret. Online, you send it instantly and never look back. 🖱️

What was once a privilege for us has now become a societal expectation: “I have a right to speak my opinion!” ⚖️

Again, opinions aren’t “good” or “bad”. Some are and some aren’t. Some are constructive but many, if not most, tend to be destructive. 🗣️

And I’ve expressed them too! 🙋♂️

Read many of my posts and you’ll see I have MANY, so this is not about pointing fingers here! Just take a look at the first sentence in this post! 😂

But this post is not about blaming social media or the internet for how fast they spreads opinions. They’re tools, and any tool can be used for better or for worse. With every advancement in technology will always come a new set of problems to consider. This just happens to be one we’re still figuring out solutions for. 👍

So, what is 1 solution to these excessive opinions? Like the beautiful quote by Paulo Coelho says in the title cover:

𝐁𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞, 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞. 𝐃𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐒𝐀𝐘 𝐢𝐭; 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐁𝐄 𝐢𝐭. 👤
