Opinion: Analysis of Thoughts
After I had written that opinion, I realized that though I feel strongly about it, my experience on the matter is very limited hence my belief is based on what I have largely observed from a distance; a matter that I had not actually thoroughly experienced. Since it is a a sensitive subject that I am always cautious in discussing, I felt it best to keep my opinion to myself for now.
It seems necessary to be in one's own head, to be able to analyze one's thoughts. To be as truthful to oneself as one could and hence to ask oneself every now and then something like; "Hey! are you sure you know enough about that to be making so much noise about it?"These are things that I am working on. Thinking about not just what I am going to say but what I have said, and thinking about my thinking is often a good way to keep me self-aware.
