Opinion: A personal assumption of the way a person perceives the reality of a situation, person, or topic. Not always but often times can be based off a stereo typed conclusion influenced by appearance, first impression, religion, sexuality, wealth, ect. A noun held in such high regard it has the ability to persuade the human mind into believing its factual even if it’s unsupported by actual fact and confronted by truth. It has the ability to destroy years of built up dreams, character, integrity, confidence and hope in only a matter of seconds of being uttered. Its presence can linger for many years without being noticed and is also capable of resurfacing without warning.
Opinions are given with a choice.
1. To take it into consideration, separating truth from fact.
2. To take as full truth.
I have a teachable spirit and take everything into consideration
If it doesn’t line up with a firm foundation, the word of God in my case, I won’t allow myself to take it to heart. Not to say I don’t get discouraged from time to time by my plentiful critics. Cause I do. I’m human and far from perfect. But I’m striving to be something more than average. Which, isn’t the easiest thing to do in a world controlled by the media and over rated, highly valued opinions that are distorted by lust, greed, and the illusion of happiness. But I’m tired of the world telling me who I am.
So, I’ll stand.
Note to self:
Don’t let the world’s opinion stop you from being who you’re called to be. Even if you feel like everyone is against you. Stand. Cause sometimes that’s all you need to do to make a difference.
