Wednesday is "Opinion" Day.

Opinion: a personal view, attitude or appraisal.

When I have a conversation about someone hurting my feelings because I felt their opinion was a bit too much, one of my people always tells me that "Opinions are like a**holes. Everyone's got one."

I always take that in with a hint of an eye roll on my face because I personally feel that people are entitled to that opinion with a huge BUT attached to it. So my rule on opinions goes a little something like this:

Everyone is entitled to their opinion (whether we like it or not), but that opinion better take into consideration what the person receiving that opinion has been through up to the point that they asked for your opinion.

Am I saying that opinions should be sugar coated? Absolutely not. 

I just think that when people make their opinions known about another person's life or current situation, they need to have tact and grace when doing so.

In other words, thinking before one speaks will go a long way.

I know that this idea is good in theory and on paper, but when exercised is extremely hard.

However, if I practice on the little stuff that doesn't matter then when it comes time for the big stuff, it will be a piece of cake.

This post is for myself. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone. I just needed to hear this today.

Happy Wednesday.
