Hold your opinion lightly

Just because you think something doesn’t make it right. I hate to be the one to tell you but your particular lens on the world isn’t the holy one – the one through which all truth is seen.

With this in mind we all need to hold our opinions lightly. Because, you know, that is all it is. An opinion. And your opinion is merely the result of the life experience you have had, the data, the beliefs, and the values you have been exposed to, and the aspects you have chosen to focus on.

Your opinion is formed through your lens and it is different to every other lens out there. It is unique but that doesn’t make it right.
