opinion


everybody is entitled to his own opinion...i couldn't agree more. having said that, there must be a basis to which it was formed. an opinion is a judgement , a personal take rendered after a definitive consideration of a certain issue. a substantiated opinion - though may still be debatable - can stand on its ground having credibility on its side. whereas, an opinion expressed bare of scrutiny will not hold water at all.

baring an opinion is liken to freedom. there's no such thing as absolute freedom. one's freedom ends when it infringes someone else's. an opinion with nothing to show off is merely a hearsay. it is crying out for attention that is way beyond common decency. have you ever wondered why gossips always spreads through low whisperings and not on a voice that commands to be listened to? it is for mere reason that once bared it is what it is, a twisted truth. opinions that are based on facts are mostly announced publicly. no one has to be put to the gallows for expressing an opinion ( i could be wrong !!) but law will be served for those who initiates a hearsay - does defamation, libel, character assassination sounds familiar?

i am all in favor of freedom of expression in whatever forms. hey! i was even called ugly duckling before. i respected that as the other person's right. mine may not be a face that could launched a thousands ships but neither one that could sink them all. be careful what you say though, i draw a line to how far one can go in expressing one's opinion of me. there are things i don't take sitting down.

  1. I had a disagreement with a fern frond weeks ago.

    She showed me her foxy look.

    "When we lose the right to be different, we lose the right to be free." That's what I have told her.

  4. One thing I like about living abroad. I have become less sensitive and more opinionated. I say what I want to say, but guarding to make sure I don't hurt anyone. I think of it as being professional not personal.
