From Writer's Bloc by Silahi Lorthridge




Hello everyone out there in there in blog world. This is Silahi Lorthridge in behalf of Writer's Bloc. I am very pleased to have yet another opportunity to address you. Today I would like to talk about "opinion(s)".

It is my belief that everyone has at least one about someone or something. I think it is healthy to maintain certain views about various events, occasions, lifestyle choice, etc. as long as it serves to prevent destructive behavior and/or promote positive growth and development.

When the expression of an opinion precipitates or contributes to controversy, or is of such an inflammatory nature as to be detrimental, I would venture to say that it would probably be better "unsaid". Words are only as effective as they are received and interpreted/understood by the person(s) communicated to. And just because a signal has been transmitted, it does not necessarily mean the message was received.

All is all, I think we have a right to hold an opinion—whatever it is—but not to necessarily voice it in all instances. But remember: this is only my opinion.

Until next time, this is Silahi Lorthridge saying good day and good night.
