So that was part of our assignment this week. Be the observer of your opinions and stop giving them. WHOA! What ISN’T my opinion? That’s an interesting question. Another good question is, if I am not my opinions and judgments, then who am I?
My husband and I have had some fun with this assignment. Practically everything out of his mouth is opinion. HAHAHAHAHA! So he walks around mumbling to himself…opinion, opinion, opinion. And I’m quick to point out when he’s giving it…isn’t that my job?
In MY head is the thought that I’M not opinionated. Well there’s a difference between being opinionated and expressing an opinion. I used to think that I should have strong opinions about things. That I was flawed that I didn’t. But that’s different than communicating what I think…my opinion. Isn’t everything ‘my opinion’? Doesn’t all that I say and think come from MY point of view?
When I give someone a compliment…”You look beautiful in that dress”, isn’t that my opinion?
But that is coming from my heart…and I am an expert of my heart. And if I am an expert of something is my opinion then relevant? So, if I am not my opinions and judgments, then who am I?
