Strong opinions

You are not supposed to have strong opinions about everything, even though it may seem like that at times.

In this day and age, we have so many helpful, useful, necessary ideas coming our way. Most of them place their importance high among things we need to care about, perhaps rightfully. And it creates this urgency in us. We want to do something. Something big and now.

But your learning capacity is limited. However big that is, it will require time for you to process them. And that’s just not something everyone can do.

Opinions take up space. The more you have them, the less space you have to breathe. This can be good, of course. But there has to be space left for you to discover, take things in, consider them, and so on.
