The Complexities of Life

Your (Unsolicited) Opinion is Weightless

The Recovering Pessimist: Your (Unsolicited) Opinion is Weightless -- If nobody asked for your opinion, consider keeping it to yourself. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistOpinions come in two forms: solicited and unsolicited.

When someone asks for your opinion, it’s likely that they value your opinion.

However, it’s when nobody asked for your opinion that things get dicey. It’s easy to share how you feel about someone’s actions, life choices, etc. What I don’t understand is why folks feel that their unsolicited opinion matters.

Because it doesn’t.

Don’t get upset when you don’t get the reaction you expected because you decided to share your unsolicited opinion. You don’t have to share everything you think, especially when nobody asked you to. Keep it to yourself.

Until next time,
