Panning For Opinions

Updated: 1 day ago

Opinions are like assholes. Yeah, I said it. But the way things are in this country right now, opinions or more importantly how we arrive at them are the root of our problems.


My mantra since I started writing is "Tempt enlightenment by exploring alternative points of view". All I ask is that while you peruse JustSayingIsAll please accept my point of view for what it is, my opinion, based on what I believe to be true at a given point in time.


Adopting informed opinions is like panning for gold. We swish all the viewpoints around and see what stays in the pan. That's the good stuff, the weighty stuff, the gold, the stuff that contributes to convictions.

If you aren’t willing to do that, your opinions are lightweights in comparison to those that do.

You should probably do a little more swishing and a little less dismissing of others opinions.


Independent thinking* is the key to developing opinions and convictions. But logic dictates that you need to observe and experience things that are the basis of your opinions. In other words, have the intelligence to check shit out before you own it. Pan for the gold.


 
*Independent Thinking is making sense of the world based on your own observations and experiences rather than depending on the word of others.The ability to trust your own judgments, even if they are not in agreement with what others might say or believe.

Free Thinker Words can both confuse and confound. Mull them over and roll them around. Like marbles unsure of where they are bound, We are all just searching for level ground.
