Unsolicited Opinions

“I value the opinions that you keep to yourself.”– Anonymous

I read this on a coaster once and just love this statement. We are all guilty of this, giving our opinion so freely that we forget to stop and ask if someone really wanted to hear what we had to say. We love to hear ourselves talk and think we know it all. Frankly we don’t, and we couldn’t possibly know everything, nor would we want to know it all. We would never learn how to become better if we thought we knew everything. That’s another topic though.

Just stop and think for a moment, is this person telling me something because they just need to be heard? Or do they really need my input on the matter? The only way to know the answer is to ask. So now, when someone that seems to be troubled is telling me something, instead of me assuming I need to make a point I ask them, “would you like my opinion?” Most times it’s followed by a yes, but there’s a few times when a friend will say, I just need you to hear me, because no one else will. That’s enough for me and it should be for you too. Silence is truly golden at times.
