Opinion: Opinion


Tired of my own opinions. 
Sometimes I think it's better that I keep them to myself;
at times I regret not saying how I feel; at other times I am ashamed of my beliefs;
often I worry that I've said too much, and often I'm certain I have said too much; often I worry that I've intruded, and that I have not been successful in making my thoughts clear.

Often my opinions leave me feeling exposed.
I believe that my beliefs are not "the truth" but my truth (thanks to a friend);
they are the current sum of my past experience: a mixture of things I've heard and things I have read;
they do alter over time.

 I hope to always know how to listen to other's opinions and consider them, even when they do not reflect mine.

May today be the best Monday you've ever had.
