Stop Inserting Your Opinion

You may think people want to hear it—they really don’t.

If they ask for your thoughts, it is mostly to confirm what they have stated and believe. If you are not exactly on point, they will no longer be interested in your input.

At this point, you may be tempted to do something even worse: defend your opinion.

May I give you some ideas? You might view them as guidelines, or at least an interesting read:

  1. If you weren’t there, don’t speculate.
  2. If you aren’t pregnant and it’s not your baby, stay out of it.
  3. If it’s not your bedroom, then quietly shut the door and walk away.
  4. People may disagree with you. That does not make them ignorant, bastard elitists.

And There Are Even More…

  1. Go ahead and enjoy your God. Let others wonder, deny or search at will.
  2. If you are not female, do not speculate on a woman’s place.
  3. If you didn’t try it, be quiet.
  4. If you don’t know, then go.
  5. If it’s not your life, cut the strife.
  6. And finally, if it doesn’t bless, avoid the mess.
