In My Humble Opinion

by Sophie on September 8, 2010

A very extraordinary man and dear friend, Harmon Hathaway, told me he wishes there was always enough space in tweets and FaceBook updates to qualify what we say with “I think that…” or “It is my opinion that…”. Because when we say: “This is true” or “This is how it is”, we present ourselves as an authority when really all we ever express as creators of our own reality is an opinion about how we view or perceive the world or how we wish it to be.

And in my opinion, Harmon is right! So I increasingly try to present what I know as an opinion, as one facet of reality among many. Even though I am quite passionate about what I ‘know’ and often get carried away! ;o)

And sometimes it’s really nice to not have to put that pressure on myself to *have to* know it all, when obviously I don’t.
Thanks for owning your statements, Sophie. It’s a good reminder, for sure. ♥
